Former Sheffield Sharks sensation Devon Van Oostrum has collected his second consecutive England Player of the Year Award. Van Oostrum, a ’93 born 6’3 point guard, played extremely well for the England side at the 2009 European Championship, averaging 21ppg and helping them to a bronze medal. He is currently playing for Spanish side, Caja Laboral (formerly Tau Cermica) Baskonia. Speaking exclusively to Hoopsfix, talking about winning the award, like a true competitor, he said
Obviously its a nice award to win individually, but all I wanted was to get promoted to the A division and the fact that we lost in the semi finals still kills me! Hopefully this year England finally gets promotion.
Everything’s going really well; we’re winning games and I’m playing good basketball but more importantly im improving.
