U16 MEN

8. Artur Wlodarczyk (Poland)
Artur Wlodarczyk was only too happy to display his English skills to FIBAEurope.com's half-court press

Coming off the bench to score 10 points a night for Poland, Artur Wlodarczyk relishes in the role of giving starting point guard Kamil Zywert a rest. Showing the same confidence he plays with on court, Wlodarczyk made himself known as the perfect candidate for the half-court press.
