   2010 Summer Signings, Part 5

But the big news here is that of ex-Rider big man, Steve Castleberry, who has moved from Czech Republican team Podebrady to Czech Republican team Basketball Brno. Last year for Podebrady, Castleberry was 7th in the league in scoring, 2nd in rebounds and 6th in block, but Podebrady finished only 10th out of 12 teams. One place behind them was Brno, who has the dubious honour of not coming last, but only because the team behind them went 3-41. Maybe now, with the pedigree of Castleberry on board, they can begin to fly up the table.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 12

- Steve Castleberry

Rider product Castleberry is spending his second season with Podebrady in the Czech Republic. Castleberry's numbers are up across the board from last year, and on the season he is averaging 13.6 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.1 blocks, shooting 62% from both the field and the foul line.

Steve Castleberry used to be a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. The above photo proves it. I wonder if they let him keep his jersey.

He has a Twitter, but it's set to private. What don't you want us to know about you, Steve Castleberry?
