Recent IPFW graduate and school record-holder Mo Evans signed a professional basketball contract in Hungary, joining Kaposvári KK in Kaposvár. The team plays in the country's first division, Nemzeti Bajnoksag I/A.

"First, I want to thank my parents and the organization for granting me the opportunity to play the game I love for a living," Evans wrote in a news release. "I am extremely grateful for the opportunity. I understand the expectations will be set extremely high. That is not something I will shy away from. This is only the beginning. I plan to make a plethora of memories in Hungary and I can't wait to meet the rest of the team."

Evans graduated this year and is the program's career leader in 3-pointers with 260. He ranked second in assists (463) and third in points (1,487).

In 2016-17, Evans was named to the NABC All-District and All-Summit League second teams and helped the Mastodons to 85 wins and four postseason appearances in his career.
