Former Saint Signs Professional Contract

06/14/2011 – Pedja Lazic, former All-American for the Aquinas Saints, recently signed a professional contract to play basketball in France. Lazic has teamed up with Feurs Fores Basket in Feurs, France. The squad plays in the French National 2 (NM2) League which resumes play in September.

Pedja states, "Playing in Germany was a learning experience for me, and I feel very fortunate that I was given an opportunity to play in France. Germany taught me how the business works and what to expect. I am very excited to help out a young team that is trying to move up to the French National 1 league, along with polishing my French, learning the French culture, and their traditions. This opportunity will allow me to gain valuable life experience and can be a stepping stone for my basketball career, and I plan to take full advantage of it."

During his career at Aquinas, Pedja led the Saints to a record of 94-43 and three WHAC regular season titles. Pedja also guided the Saints to two WHAC Tournament Championships and four straight trips to the NAIA National Championships. During Lazic's senior season (2008-09) he was named the WHAC Player of the Year and 1st Team NAIA All-American. Pedja averaged 16.9 points and 9.4 rebounds during his senior campaign.
