He ended up mainly a benchwarmer on his Greek U-18 team. Getting a scholarship to Cal is like winning the lottery. He will get a great internationally recognized education, improve his English and Fox and staff will improve his game if he wants to try to play pro in Greece. All for free, plus stipend.while living in the Bay Area. What are his other options? Lars probably looks at it the same way. They'd be crazy to leave.

Jules was not on scholarship, was not getting PT, but spending as much time on basketball as the scholarship players. His dad has money. Makes sense for him to quit and focus on academics. Basketball got him into Cal, but his future is a Cal degree.
