Aug 14, 2007 by Print
Latvian champion ASK Riga continued its preparations for its ULEB Cup debut with the signing of Aerick Sanders. The big man brings plenty of needed ULEB Cup experience to the team after playing in 14 games for Strasbourg last season, averaging 10.2 points, 7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game as the club reached the quarterfinals. Sanders (202, 25) previously played for Tuborg Izmir in Turkey and Ciudad de Huelva in Spain after playing college basketball at San Diego State. Sanders will have the honor in playing in the ULEB Cup opening game this season, as ASK hosts Lukoil Academic in a rematch of the first European title game 50 years ago.
