Stephan Van Treese is moving on, taking his act elsewhere.
Van Treese had no fear around the basket, banging with the best of them, sacrificing his body on his regular basis, and was well liked by fans and teammates. Unfortunately, he was never going to be a good shooter and be able to hit free throws. And there were the nagging injuries.
A player whose physical skills never seemed to catch up with with his 6-foot-8 frame, Van Treese sought to offset his deficiencies with an abundance of toughness and desire. Unfortunately, that only goes so far as more skilled players become available.
Another fan base will be fortunate to have him.
