Career: KK Zagreb (Croatia-A-1, 2000-05), Real Madrid (Spain-ACB, 2005-07), Fuenlabrada (Spain-Liga ACB, 2007-08).
Marko Tomas had a breakout season with Fuenlabrada in 2007-08, averaging 13.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in the Liga ACB. The previous two seasons, he had failed to become a key player in Real Madrid and that’s why the club decided to loan him out but this season has convinced Real to bring him back to the capital. Last summer, at only 22, he played in his second EuroBasket with the Croatia National Team and famously drilled a three-pointer with 3.1 seconds remaining to beat Spain, 85-84 in group play. Tomas started his career in Zagreb and at 17 was already the best player of the team. In 2005, Boja Maljkovic recruited him at Real Madrid. Tomas is a tall and strong shooter. He also knows how to use his physical qualities to provide good defence. He was arguably Croatia’s most important player at the qualifying event. In the semi-final victory over Germany that clinched an Olympic spot for Croatia, Tomas set the tone for the triumph in the first quarter with 11 points – nine of them coming from three-pointers. He led Croatia in the points department and was the fifth-leading scorer at the tournament in Athens.
