Former Edmond Santa Fe basketball player Josh Richardson has taken his game worldwide, spending some time in Germany and Poland this summer on an exhibition tour with Athletes in Action.
Richardson, who started nine games and played in 34 as a true freshman at Tennessee last season, said the experience offered some surprises.
“The competition was a lot better than I thought it was going to be,” Richardson told GoVolsXtra.com. “It was deceptive.
“All those European players in the (NBA) seem to be doing pretty well. I figure it's a style maybe I can pick up. It can help my game. It's another brand.”
Richardson averaged 2.9 points and 1.4 assists in 16.0 minutes per game last season, and he could be in line for more playing time as a sophomore, thanks to his strong defensive skills.
He hopes the European trip will help his game blossom even further.
“I'm still growing, but I've gotten a lot more mature,” he said.
