This is the first time in ESF basketball program history that a former player has received an invitation to the ESL combine.
The ESL is considered a top international exposure event for athletes looking for professional basketball opportunities abroad. The two-day event attracts some of the best available players for professional clubs to select from, including NCAA All-Americans, NBA D-League veterans and experienced professional talent.
Players are put through a series of agility and skill tests, and they participate in full-court scrimmages.
Caldwell averaged three points and three rebounds in nine games, including a nine -ebound effort in one match. Bard scored six points, pulled down four rebounds and had two assists in one game.
Both former student-athletes are hoping for an invitation to try out for a professional team abroad.
