Wesleyan’s Vicentic signs professional basketball contract in Slovakia


BUCKHANNON – Former West Virginia Wesleyan forward Dusan Vicentic has officially signed a professional contract with MBK Banik Handlova in Handlova, Slovakia.

Handlova plays in the top Slovakian professional league, known as Slovenská Basketbalová Liga, or SBL.

Last season, Handlova finished seventh in the SBL at 9-18 overall.

"I'm excited to start my professional career," stated Vicentic. "I think it is a great place for me to improve as a player and take the next step in my career. I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point. To play basketball as a job is truly a dream come true for me, and one that came after years of dedication, hard work, and overcoming adversity. With that said, I recognize that the hard work is only beginning and I hope to maximize this opportunity."

In four seasons for the Bobcats, Vicentic averaged 9.9 points per game, including a career-best 16.9 points a contest as a season during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Serbia native ripped down a career-mark of 8.6 rebounds per game last season and started all 30 games for Wesleyan.

Vicentic joins former guard Marcus Larsson '20 (Wetterbygden Basketball in Sweden) and former forward Tanner McGrew '16 (FC Porto in Portugal) as Bobcats playing in the professional ranks.
