While he was a Blue Devil, we talked a lot about how much we liked Antonio Vrankovic’s game. He has great hands and instincts; his problem is he’s just not that fast and doesn't jump very high.

He still had an impact at times though and in at least one particular game this year was absolutely critical to Duke’s success.

In this interview with the Las Vegas Journal-Review, he talks about his home country of Croatia, basketball there, the recover from war - not something most people his age have to think about - and why it’s a great place to visit. It’s a good basketball snack so check it out.
