Josh Sparks (205 cm, Valdosta State’13) will be playing his rookie season as a pro in Romania for CS U-Mobitelco Cluj Napoca this 2013-14.
In his senior year, Sparks averaged 13.5 ppg, 9.1 rpg and 3.4 bpg. He is the team’s all-time leader in single-season blocks, at 100 in 2012-13. It will be interesting if he can carry over his defensive intensity in a professional basketball league.
He also helped Valdosta State reach the finals in the GSC Tournament in 2013. Josh was named to the NABC Division II All-South Region 2nd Team, the All-GSC 2nd Team and to the GSC All-Tournament Team in 2013.
