Follow a Former College Star from NBA Dream to International Fame

These days, basketball truly is a global game.

NBA teams play against the best competition from international leagues during the preseason. Notable players like Jordan Farmar, Rudy Fernandez and Josh Childress have turned down NBA jobs to play overseas. Heck, the level of play has gotten so good that the NBA 2K guys added international teams to this year's game.

One of those teams is Real Madrid, where Jaycee Carroll plays.

After averaging 18.8 points and shooting 46.5 percent from three-point range over four years at Utah State University, Carroll went on to play professionally in Teramo, Italy (2008-09), Gran Canaria, Spain (2009-2011) and now Madrid, Spain (2011-current). He averaged over 19 points a game in two seasons with Gran Canaria.

Carroll recently took the time to talk with Bleacher Report about the process of becoming an international player, the highs and lows that come with that and his experiences in general.
