Carrington Love has had a great two year start to his professional basketball career.
The 6’1” former Green Bay star is coming off a spectacular season for ZZ Leiden in the Dutch Basketball League in The Netherlands in which he finished second in the MVP race behind former Harvard star Brandyn Curry. Love was also named to the DBL All-Star and All-Defensive teams this past season.
But the 24-year old Love will be taking his talents to Belgium next season, following his old Leiden coach to Kangoeroes Mechelen in the Pro Basketball League, the top tier of basketball in Belgium.
Love’s successful season helped Leiden finish 24-8 during the regular season and guided the team through the playoffs all the way to finals where they fell 4-0 to Donar Groningen. In 43 total games Love scored 17.2 points and added 6.6 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.0 steals in 35.2 minutes per game this past season.
He started this past season off with a bang by recording the first triple double is Leiden history by scoring 15 points, dishing out 12 assists, and grabbing 10 rebounds in a 75-63 victory over the league champions Donar Groningen.
Love’s solid second season comes on the heels of an equally impressive rookie season as a professional playing with the Kirchheim Knights in Germany where he averaged 14.0 points, 6.9 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game in 2016/2017.
His new team, Mechelen, finished 13-23 this past season in the Pro Basketball League in Belgium.
The new season gets underway the last week of September.
