“She was the rock behind him at this very low point in his career,” observed Mike Miller, Mr. Haslem’s former Gator as well as Miami Heat teammate, now a member of the Memphis Grizzlies. With that support, Mr. Haslem rebounded quickly, accepting a position with the Élan Chalon basketball team in Chalon-sur-Saône, France, while Ms. Rein remained in Gainesville to complete her bachelor’s degree in business administration.

Tony Parker and Nicholas Batum both headline the 12-man roster that France will have when they arrive in Ljubljana next month for Eurobasket. Head coach Vincent Collet has surprised many however by leaving out Leo Westermann, Evan Fournier and Kim Tille, a decision that was made by Collet on Saturday night, before the team’s first defeat of the pre-Eurobasket warm-ups to Greece. Many expected Fournier to make his senior debut this summer in Slovenia after impressing at under-20 level. He was also a major standout at last year’s Adidas Eurocamp in Treviso, Italy – where they showcase young European prospects under the watchful eye of NBA scouts. "Evan [Fournier] had little time to show us what he could do, and although in the last few games he improved and started to play more freely, it was still not enough to make us change our mind about what we had seen before," Collet explained.
