Dusan Ristic Dreamed Big And Achieved Bigger

Nothing is too big; anything is possible.

 If you know him, you know that. You know that less than five years ago, he spoke very little English and had never stepped foot in America. You know that he didn't know McKale Center from McDonald's. You know the idea of him turning into perhaps the winningest player in the history of Arizona Basketball was more than a longshot.

 But, Dusan Ristic is a dreamer. He knew all of this was out there for him.

 "My goal since I was a little kid was to play in the NBA," Ristic said. "And that's still my goal; it's what I'm working on every day. I love the game of basketball, and I want to play it for as long as I can."

 As a young boy in soccer crazed Novi Sad, Serbia, Ristic fell in love with basketball. When he was 7-years-old, living in Novi Sad, he remembers watching the Yugoslavian national team beat the USA in the 2002 FIBA World Championships. He watched as Yugoslavia went on to win the gold, and a love story was born.

Regardless if he ever plays in the NBA, Dusan has surely surpassed any and all expectations of him and should be proud to be the winningest Wildcat of all-time. BEARDOWN big fella

Dusan came here with a goal...he achieved the first part.  He's well on his way to achieving the second part...and the rest will just be the kind of life that's the usual reward for those that dream and then make it happen.  You need to stand in the spotlight big guy...you earned it!

Bear Down Dusan!
