Lancer Alum Kacie Oliver Continuing Her Soccer Career

Tristan Carey has signed with Marso Nyiregyhazi KK of the 14 team Hungary- A Division. The team is known as Marso NYKK for short and finished 5-17 a year ago, which was last in the league.

Last year’s roster feature three Americans in Jara Doyne (Ole Miss), Will Walker (DePaul), and Derek Hall (Albright). As of right now, Carey is the lone American on the roster for the 2014-15 season and is expected to start at shooting guard for Marso NYKK.

Here is the initial post from EuroBasket:

“The team of NYKK just played its first pre-season game against Kecskemet tonight, and there was a new player on the court. American guard, Tristan Carey (193-G-91) arrived two days ago to Hungary and started the preperation with his new team for his first professional season. The 193 cm tall, very athletic guard graduated on the University of Longwood this summer and was the key player of his team averaging 18.5ppg, 6.6rpg, 1.5spg, FGP: 48.3%, 3PT: 39.5%, FT: 78.6% in 31 games. He got also voted into the 2nd team of the Big South Conference.”
