EuroBasket Pro Fighting Illini Weekly Update

Every week we bring you a list of the top former Fighting Illini players who continue their career in pro basketball.


   #1. Leron Black (6'7''-F-96, graduated '18, plays pro in Argentina) led Argentino to a victory over the 11th-ranked Quimsa (17-18) 96-92 in the Argentinian La Liga in Sunday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Black had a double-double by scoring 28 points and getting 11 rebounds in 41 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his first season in pro basketball. Argentino Junin (12-18) is placed sixth in the La Liga. It was his team's 11th consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Black's first year with the team. Black has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages 15.5ppg and 7.1rpg in 35 games he played so far.

   #2. Maverick Morgan (6'10''-C-94, graduated '17, plays in Poland) contributed to a GTK Gliwice's victory against the league outsider Miasto Szkla (6-24) 98-88 in the Polish EBL last Sunday. He scored 12 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. GTK Gliwice (11-19) is placed 12th in the EBL. The Regular Season already ended. It's Morgan's first season with the team. This year Morgan averages 8.9ppg and 5.0rpg.

   #3. Meyers Leonard (7'1''-C-92, graduated '12, currently in the NBA), who plays in the NBA could not help the Portland Trail Blazers (53-29) to beat the Denver Nuggets (54-28). It was not Leonard's best game last Monday. He recorded only 3 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 12 minutes. The Portland Trail Blazers (53-29) lost 113-121 on the road to the Nuggets. It's Leonard's seventh season with the team. This year Leonard averages 5.6ppg, 3.7rpg and 1.1apg in 67 games.

   #4. Nnanna Egwu (6'11''-C-92, graduated '15, plays pro in New Zealand) was not able to help 2 Cheap Cars Super City Rangers in their game against Giants (3-1) in the New Zealand NBL. He recorded 8 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. 2 Cheap Cars Super City Rangers were badly defeated 95-77 in Stoke by the second-ranked Giants. It was 2 Cheap Cars Super City Rangers' fourth consecutive loss in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Egwu has relatively good stats this year 11.6ppg, 8.4rpg, 1.8apg, 2.2bpg and 1.4spg. He is a naturalized Nigerian.

   #5. Mark Alstork (6'5''-G-95, graduated '18, plays in Luxembourg) was not able to secure a victory for Residence (7-16) in their last game. Despite Alstork's very good performance the second-placed Residence (7-16) was badly defeated 108-90 at home by the lower-ranked (#3) T.Hesperange in the Playdowns 1 group. He had a double-double by scoring 27 points and getting 12 rebounds in 32 minutes; not bad, considering it's only Alstork's first season in pro basketball. The Second Stage already ended. Alstork has very impressive stats this year 24.7ppg, 9.4rpg, 2.1apg and 1.9spg in 21 games. Worth to mention he played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.

   #6. D.J. Richardson (6'3''-G-91, graduated '13, currently in France) couldn't help Aix-Maurienne Savoie Basket in their game against Chorale de Roanne in the French ProB (second division). Richardson did not beat the league record on Friday evening. He scored only 2 points. His team was badly defeated by 20 points 90-70. Richardson has relatively good stats this season 14.3ppg, 2.5rpg, 1.8apg and 1.8spg.
