Serbian Eligible For Golden Bears

Nikola Knezevic is ready to roll. The Serbian point guard will in the Pac-10 this season for one very lucky program.

The California Golden Bears received excellent news. Nikola Knezvic, a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Serbia, is signed and ready to play for the Golden Bears. He is eligible to play for the team on Wednesday.

"We're excited to have Nikola join our program," Ben Braun said. "He's a consummate team player who helps his teammates perform at a higher level. He has a great understanding of the game and brings a lot of experience to our line-up. I was impressed with his play this past summer and think he is going to be a great addition to our team."

The 6-foot-2 standout first drew raves when he appeared at the adidas Superstar Camp. However, he didn't just show up. He made the all-star game, had coaches scrambling to learn more about him and definitely made the most of his few days in the country last summer.

He participated on the Serbian National Team. This is a significant mid-season addition for the Golden Bears, one that will pay immediate dividends.
