Former U of L center...Stephan Van Treese announced Friday afternoon that he plans on playing pro ball in Japan next season.  He leaves on August 27th for Niigata City in Japan to play a 52 game schedule for Niigata Albirex Basketball...continuing his basketball career.  "I love basketball, don't get me wrong, I've always wanted to play, but I thought in the long run it wouldn't be a good career for me. Then looking at it, and now that everything's coming together, I'm more than excited. I'm just ready to get back in the gym, and continue to get better," said Van Treese."
