   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 54

- Luke Recker

Iowa graduate Luke Recker was playing ACB basketball up until and including last year, when he came off the bench for Bizkaia Bilbao. It was his third season with the team, and he averaged 8.4 points per game as a shooting specialist in the ACB, alongside 6.5 ppg in the Eurocup.

I can't help but assume that this has something to do with that car accident he was in almost a decade ago, but even if it is, there's nothing wrong with that.

Recker came off the bench for Bilbao last year usually in conjunction with former Gopher and Timberwolves forward Quincy Lewis. Lewis also retired this summer, as mentioned before. Strange coincidence.
