Tai Wesley is headed to the Netherlands. He has apparently signed a 1-year deal with EiffelTowers Den Bosch, an apparent powerhouse in Dutch basketball.
Here’s a Google translation of the official announcement.
EiffelTowers adds a new power forward to the selection. The American signed a contract for one season.
Wesley played the past four seasons for the Utah State Aggies in Western Athletic Conference. The 2.02-meter power forward came in his final years to averages of 14.8 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. “Wesley is a real threat in the low post,” said Frederick manager. “He will give us more scoring power under the basket and give the rebound he is capable. Together with Van Paassen, Wessels and Van der List, he is a very balanced frontcourt. ”
Wesley won in his tenure at Utah State four times the championship of the Western Athletic Conference and two times the WAC Tournament. Last season, he urged the Aggies until the second round of the NCAA Tournament before taking off to be Kentucky. Wesley was the match scorer with 18 points.
Interestingly enough, Tai apparently led the Aggies to a second round loss to Kentucky in the big dance last year. 🙂
