   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 47

- Drew Neitzel

Michigan State's very own Drew Neitzel started the year in France, where he averaged 12.6 points and 5.3 assists in 31 minutes per game in the French league for Chalon. He was released after Chalon lost four consecutive games (replaced by former Oklahoma guard Terrell Everett, who now ranks second in the league in assists), and moved to Germany to play for TBB Trier. But Neitzel is struggling in Germany, averaging only 7.2 points and 1.4 assists in 22 minutes per game. He's also shooting only 10-32 from three point range. Maybe he should use the other hand.
