This may be the busiest summer of Ben Woodside’s life. The all-time leading scorer in NDSU history is now heading to the best league in Europe.

On top of that, Woodside is getting married this weekend. Last week Woodside signed with union Olympia out of Slovenia, a team that will face some of the best basketball players not in the NBA.....

Ben Woodside – NDSU all-time leading scorer: “It's a pretty big step. You know how I was saying before I played in the Euro Challenge and that's the lowest European competition and I played in that last year. And now this year, it's the Euroleague which is basically, two steps higher and it's the top league in all of Europe. I think it's a place where a lot of guys want to be at and I’m fortunate and blessed enough to be playing in it in my third year as a professional. It's going to be a wonderful opportunity, but it's a very competitive league.”
