Devan Downey Off to a Good Start in Turkey

Devan Downey has landed on a professional basketball roster, it might not have been liked he and us the fan had hope as a NBA team seems a better fit for him but at least he is playing. Downey signed on with Antalya BSB in Turkey in late July and it seems he has started play recently with his new team.

Devan’s team, Antalya, shocked Efes Pilsen 71-68 on Oct. 16th and their next game is on Oct. 23rd according to this site.

Downey in that opening season contest led all scorers in the upset of Efes Pilsen, here is his stat line from that game:

15 points, 3 assists,  5 rebounds, 2-8 3 FG, 57% FG Percent and 100% FT Percent

The Team’s Offical Site is –– but note that is not english.

We here hope Devan has a good season then comes back to the US just in time to get acquired by a NBA team, that is where is game belongs. Just ask Kentucky.
