Veteran pivot Jakub Houska is a model of commitment as he has only played for two clubs in his entire professional career - the second being Decin, the club of national team coach Pavel Budinsky. Houska played useful minutes in the Czech's campaign at EuroBasket 2007 in Spain (5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds-per-game) and six years later can still provide solutions coming off the bench. He led his team Decin in rebounding (6.8 per-game) in last season's Mattoni NBL, whilst also averaging a satisfactory 9.3 points-per-game. A keen blogger, he maintains his own pages (www.koubasket.cz) where he regularly comments about all things sport (not only basketball).
