Fredrico Martins, who in May committed to play for the TRU WolfPack men’s basketball team, will play for Portugal at the Under-18 European B Championships.
Portugual’s first group match will be against Belarus on Friday.
“It is great for him, but also great for us,” WolfPack men’s basketball head coach Scott Clark said. “We are getting a guy who has been going in two-a-day practices with his national team.
“The European B Championships will be comparable to Canadian university basketball. It is high-level play.”
