Having cemented himself as one of the top British players in the BBL over the past couple of seasons, and following an invite to GB Senior training camp in Houston, Myles Hesson was ready to spread his wings a little and test the waters in Europe.
Linking up with his former GB U20 coach Tim Lewis, Hesson signed with Weissenhorn Youngstars where he has led the team to remarkable turnaround. Spending the 2011-12 season at the bottom of the standings, this season the Bundesliga Pro B side are second in the South with a 10-6 record and have now won 7 of their last 10 games.
Hesson has averaged 24.2 points and 12.2 rebounds in five games played in 2013, including a Pro B career high game of 34 points and 19 rebounds against Dresden last week. Check out some season highlights of the athletic forward from Birmingham below!
