KLAMATH FALLS, Ore -Head men's basketball coach Dan Miles announced this week that Josh Wetzler (Perth, Australia) has recently signed a professional basketball contract with Franken Hexer of the Pro B German professional league.
Franken Hexer, a German professional basketball team based in Nüremberg, is currently a member of the 2nd Bundesliga Pro B. Wetzler will play for head coach, and former Hustlin' Owl, Alex Krueger (1993-96).
Wetzler played four years for Oregon Tech helping the Owls to four-consecutive NAIA II national championship appearances from 2005-09, including three "Sweet 16" showings and an NAIA II National Championship in 2008. Wetzler finished second on the all-time career rebounding list at Oregon Tech with 1,026 and fourth on the NAIA II tournament rebounding list with an 11 game total of 105.
