Ex-UIC stars Kreps, Carter sign overseas

Former UIC basketball players Paul Carter and Robo Kreps have signed overseas contracts, the school announced on Monday.

Carter, a 6-8 forward, signed with Proteas Danoi in the Cypriot League. He averaged 14.7 points and eight rebounds last season.

Kreps, a 6-1 guard, will play for MIA Tbilisi of the Georgian League. He finished seventh on UIC's all-time scoring list with 1,594 career points.

"I'd like to congratulate both Robo and Paul on extending their basketball careers on the professional level,” UIC coach Howard Moore said a statement. "Those guys did a great job serving as our co-captains last year, and had tremendous careers. I'm extremely happy for both of them, and we'll be paying close attention to their careers overseas."
