American forward Brandon Crawford (201 cm, Albion’06) has signed a deal that will see him playing with Baskets Vilsbiburg (Germany, 1.Regionalliga) next season. The 28-year old is joining the German outfit after recently completing a stint in Colombia with Academia de Montaa (DPB). He played a total of 17 games for Academia and averaged 18.4ppg, and 7.1rpg.
It will not be the first time that Brandon Crawford has played in Germany after previously representing TG Renesas Landshut and P4two Osnabruek in the Regionalliga. Vilsbiburg head coach Holger Prote welcomed the addition of Crawford on the clubs official website.
“Despite his size and frame, he moves well for a player with his strength. He gained plenty of experience playing at a high level over the past years and kept developing. He won’t need too much time to adapt because of the players who he knows from back then”.
