It was announced that FC Bayern forward, Nihad Djedovic, would miss about three weeks with an ankle injury. Team international head coach Tyrone McCoy chose Caloiaro as his replacement adding, “he should have made the team originally.”

"I thank my teammates, coaches and office, because otherwise I would not have got this chance. I am honored to represent MBC and the fans and it will surely be a great experience and very exciting", Caloiaro said.

Caloiaro, a 24-year old, 6’8” forward is playing in his second professional season, and first in Germany with Mittledeutscher BC, has played 16 games averaging 15.2 points/game, 7.4 rebounds/game, 2.4 assists/game.

He has scored in double figures in 15 of 16 games and four times 20 points or more including a 25-point game against Medi Bayreuth.

"It is great that a Mittledeutscher BC player will go to the All-Star game. He is playing a great season and is one of the most complete players in the Beko BBL. He is a good guy and hard worker and this nomination is deserved", Mittledeutscher BC head coach Silvano Poropat said.

Caloiaro’s USF head coach Rex Walters said, “ Angelo was very coachable and a hard worker. I’m happy for his success.”

Caloiaro’s brother Vinny is playing soccer in Europe as well and his sister, Joan just graduated from Cal- Berkeley where she was volleyball top-performer.

Angelo’s mother, Maureen Caloiaro, is the basketball All-time leading scorer at Pepperdine University.

The All-Star game will be played January 18th, 2014.
