Former Deerfield and Clemson basketball star Andre Young hoped the NBA would work out after college, but when it didn’t, he sought to prove his worth by playing — and starring — overseas. He did just that in his rookie season with the Den Bosch EiffelTowers of the Dutch Basketball League, earning MVP honors and leading his team to the regular-season championship. Young will now take his game to the Ukrainian Basketball SuperLeague — the top league in the country — to continue his blossoming pro hoops career. (Photos courtesy of Andre Young)
