Victor Wembanyama scored his first points in Eurocup, yesterday against Cedevita Olimpija (with Rion Brown, former Brussels’s player).
In 17 minutes, he recorded 5 points, 6 rebounds, 4 blocks and 2 assists.
Victor Wembanyama (16 yo, 2m20), is considered as the best prospect in Europe. The young frenchman already played in Eurocup with Nanterre 92 last season against Brescia at 15 years old.
At the Adidas Next Generation tournament, the Euroleague for the U18, he averaged 15,7 points, 12,3 rebounds, 3,3 steals and 7 blocks in 29 minutes.
Mike Schmitz, from ESPN on Wembanyama: “There’s a kid in Europe right now. Victor Wembanyama, who’s maybe the best prospect in the world. He’s 7’3 with almost an 8 foot wingspan. He blocks shots like Rudy Gobert and he shoots like Porzingis. He can handle and pass. I’ve never seen anything like him.“
