    I wouldn't consider Bryan Alberts as Dutch. He was born and raised in California. Yes, he had parents or grandparents that gave him that heritage so he could play for the Netherlands National team, but he himself wasn't from there. Not the same as the guys actually from other countries.

    Interestingly. the last one I got was one of the easiest, Serbia. So how did I come up with 18 legitimate countries without counting Croatia (Mario never suited up) or Texas?

    BD .... as I mentioned above, it "may" have been 17 different countries during Few's time as HC ... which would rule out the Bahamas as Quentin graduated in '99.

    Australia was Axel Dench
    New Zealand was Calum McLeod
    England was Germayne Forbes

    and two from Sudan ... Manny Arop and Bol Kong

    Believe it or not I'd initally missed Pavel until Mrs. GoZags said "isn't that Pavel guy from Russia?". To quote the esteemed Birddog ... "D'oh"

    I was really bothered that I didn't think of Nigeria and Ivory Coast, but to be fair to me, both Guy and Abdullahi were already at JC's here in the US before they came to Gonzaga so their recruitment didn't have that international feel.

    (also I totally forgot about Calum & NZ but don't feel as bad about that one...)

    Angel Nunez (mentioned above) was born in the Dominican Republic. Also Puerto Rico is a Territory of the US. It not a foreign country.

    If we could just pull some 7 footer from Antarctica I'm sure we would be the first school with a player from all 7 continents.
