Career highlights and awards

Christian Erik Maråker (born 24 September 1982) is a Swedish basketball player who currently plays for Borås Basket of the Basketligan. A 6'9" Center (basketball)/power forward, he played college basketball in the United States at the University of the Pacific from 2002 to 2006.

Maråker attended Sanda Gymnasium in Huskvarna, Sweden. After his second season at Sanda, he moved to the Sodertalje Club Team. He earned all-star honors at both the Under 20 Swedish Championships in 2001 and the Junior Swedish Championships in 2000. He also earned Stadium Cup Most Valuable Player honors in 2001. At the 2001 Stockholm Club Tournament, Maråker scored 26 points in the championship game against the Solna Club team from Stockholm. He played for two years with the Swedish Under 20 National Team.

At Pacific he averaged 17.6 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game [1]. He was the 2005-2006 Big West Conference Player of the Year [2], and was only the sixth player to be named first-team All-Big West three times in his career.

He was listed as a sleeper pick in the 2006 NBA draft. Some experts thought he might get picked up by the Utah Jazz [3], but went undrafted, signing with Union Olimpija shortly afterwards.
