Devin Booker Wins MVP, Championship in France
And shine he did.
The 2013 senior and third-team All-ACC power forward scored a game-high 21 points and added six rebounds to lead Bourg to the Pro B Championship in France. Booker, a career 65.8 percent free throw shooter, knocked down 13 of 14 attempts from the line in the series clincher against Poitiers. A full game analysis is available here.
Booker posted celebration photos to his Instagram account, including one with the MVP trophy:
Playing overseas can be a rough transition for many. Devin started the year by signing with Sluc Nancy, one of the top French teams in the Pro A league. After playing only five minutes per game with Nancy, he found success with Bourg. The Whitmire, S.C., native averaged 12 points and 6.1 rebounds per game as a professional rookie.
And, his success was not lost on his big brother Trevor, either:
