- Aleks Maric

Former Nebraska centre Aleks Maric is Australian, despite the name. (Why are there so many Australian-Croatians in the world today? What happened there?) He is playing for Partizan Belgrade, a Serbian team that has had a Cinderella-like run in the Euroleague this year, one that still hasn't ended. Partizan are currently set to play in the Euroleague semi-finals against Olympiakos next month, and Maric is the reason why. He has broken out this year to average 14.4 points and 8.6 rebounds in only 24 minutes per game in the Euroleague, alongside 23.4/11.6/7.5 in the Adriatic League. He is 10th overall in the Euroleague in points per game and second in rebounds; somehow, despite being slower than a Stephen Hawking freestyle, Maric has emerged as one of the best players not in the NBA.

Partizan owe much of their run this year to him. And it's probably going to be more than they're able to pay next year.
