Boys' basketball: Another Dragovic is coming to SoCal

July 23, 2009 |  1:16 pm

The younger brother of UCLA forward Nikola Dragovic said today that he is moving to San Marcos, Calif. Danilo Dragovic, a 6-foot-5 junior, is playing for the Double Pump 2011 team. He's going to live with a host family.

"He's gregarious, funny and outgoing," Double Pump Coach Christian Aurand said.

He also can shoot and is playing for a young team that Aurand predicts will be one of the best travel-ball teams next season.

Double Pump is full of top prospects, which is why lots of college coaches have come to Rancho High in Las Vegas this afternoon.

Among the players are Arizona State-bound Kyle Caudill of Brea Olinda, top guards Josiah Turner from Sacramento and Lonnie Jackson from Valencia, rising guard Spencer Dinwiddie from Woodland Hills Taft and forward Ryan Anderson from Long Beach Poly.
