The West Virginia Mountaineers will be well represented in Europe this basketball season with players like Da'Sean Butler, John Flowers, Truck Bryant, Alex Ruoff and others. The French Pro-B League tipped off their regular season games this past weekend with one WVUPro getting in on the action.
Last season, there were over 6,800 former NCAA basketball players on teams in Europe.
John Flowers signed with JL Bourg during the offseason after leading Denain Voltaire in scoring last season, his first in Europe. Bourg lost to Fos Oest by the narrow margin of 73-70. Flowers had a big game in his debut for Bourg, leading the team with 18 points, 11 rebounds 3 steals and 1 blocked shot.
This was what Flowers had to say after the game:
Took a tough L in the first game of the season ...we was down 30 on the road and brought it all the way back to 1...Loss by 3... Good fightjohn flowers (@jflow41) September 13, 2013
