Koch and Eglseder prep for summer league

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The pressure is on for Jordan Eglseder and Adam Koch.  The next two weeks could determine whether or not they'll be the first UNI Panthers to make an NBA roster since 1990 when big man Jason Reese had a short stint with the Boston Celtics.

Both players are on NBA summer league rosters.

Eglseder is getting his shot with the Detroit Pistons with games starting this Friday in Vegas.

While starting Monday, Koch will don an Indianapolis Pacers jersey in the Orlando summer league.  Both Koch and Eglseder went undrafted and will be looking to secure free agent contracts once the summer league games wrap up.
