    RE: Matt Howard

    NBA Lockout Threatens Progress

    Sounds like Howard may have more interest in playing over in Europe than in the NBA. I think he would be a better fit over there and have a much better career and probably make more money. I would like to see him take a shot at the NBA but I couldn't blame him for passing up the opportunity to go overseas.

    RE: Matt Howard - Germany

    Looks like Howard had 14 points in his debut for his new team in Germany

    RE: Matt Howard - Germany

    As I reported on the other board:

    Howard started and scored 9 points on 2/3 shooting and 5/6 from the free throw line in addition to collecting 8 boards in 25 minutes of play. They lost 64-71 to FC Bayern Munich and are currently 7-19 in the league (second to last).

    Matt joined the team late in the season though and should do wonders for turning their season around (hence why he is already starting).

    RE: Matt Howard - Germany

    Great to hear. I was overseas his Freshman year and in ACC country his Sophmore year, so I only got to see a handful of games. That said, I was able to follow the 09/10 and 10/11 seasons and I regret not being able to watch his first two years. He epitomizes what a scholar athlete should be and he deserves every bit of success that comes his way.

    I honestly think that Howard could play in the NBA. he plays hard is a good shooter. I hope some time will take a chance on him

    There was an article in the Connersville paper a couple weeks ago, and it said that Matt planned to try out for a couple teams this summer, including the Suns. He mentioned that he didn't want to play in the D-League because it was too much one-one basketball and that wasn't his game. I'll try to find the article and paste it on here.

    Matt's coach is not very bright.

    You actually get a short glimpse of Matt on the bench (foul trouble?) after his coach interferes with the play and give the other team the win.

    He is a starter for a German pro team from Ulm, Germany. Last I looked he was averaging around 10 points/ game.

    No updates on Howard in a while, but he's playing for Strasbourg in France. They are in the Euroleague (the continental championship tournament) this season, in a group with Fenerbahce and Real Madrid. Last year in the Eurocup (the 2nd tier of European continental basketball) he averaged 10.7 ppg and 6.9 rpg. He's made a nice career for himself in Europe.
