Matt Lojeski - EuroBasket 2013 Profile
Team 2012-13: Oostende (Belgium)
Career: Eastern Wyoming College (USA-NJCA, 2003-05); University of Hawaii at Manoi (USA-NCAA, 2005-07); Okapi Aalstar (Belgium-BLB, 2007-09); BC Oostende (Belgium-BLB, 2009-13)

Having received Belgian citizenship in 2013, American-born Lojeski has received an immediate call into the national team for the EuroBasket campaign to potentially fill their naturalised spot as there is another option to do so in Wen Mukubu. It comes after five seasons playing in the Belgian League, starting with Aalst in 2007 before joining his current team, Oostende, in 2009. He was MVP in 2009 and 2013 and this year, led Oostende to the Ethias League championship, hitting the game-winning three-pointer in the deciding Game 5 of their series with Charleroi. He also had try-outs and summer league stints with the Utah Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors of the NBA, as well as in 2013, with the New Orleans Pelicans. He joined Euroleague champions Olympiacos in July. Lojeski competed in soccer, baseball and athletics at high school. He is married to Elise, with two sons, Matthew and Mason. He has his own website at mattlojeski.com. On Twitter @lojokid10.
