Default Sixers rookie Vucevic honing skills in Europe

Philadelphia Daily News:

Nikola Vucevic is being banged around by former Notre Dame center Torin Francis. Then veteran Derrick Allen, from the University of Mississippi, takes his turn as German team Alba Berlin ends up beating Vucevic's Montenegro club, Buducnost Voli, in a recent Eurocup game.

Vucevic, 21, struggled to only nine points on 3-for-10 shooting and four rebounds that day, but he did show glimpses of why the 76ers selected the Southern California product with their first-round pick, with three blocks and a three-pointer.

"I feel like I have improved since my last game at USC," said Vucevic, selected at No. 16 last June. "What really helped me was the work I put in to prepare for the draft. I really worked hard every day, twice a day on my conditioning and skills and my shooting and everything."
