Jeremy Evans Loses a Dunk Contest in Latvia

August 27th, 2012 | by Spencer Hall

While spending time searching for gifts for Jeremy Evans from his wedding registry, I stumbled across the odd information that Evans spent time the week before his wedding participating in a dunk contest in Latvia.

Evans was apparently participating in an event in Riga known as Krasts pret Krastu, a 24-hour basketball tournament that is part of a larger Riga Festival.

Former Florida State point guard and current VEF Riga player Luke Loucks tweeted from the event, too:

It’s been a great summer for Evans: He signed a new contract, got married, took a tour of rural utah promoting Jr. Jazz, and somehow found time to visit Latvia. Excellent work all the way around.
