From Russia with Love: Luke Babbitt update

9

Check out 1:20 for a rare glimpse of the Chalupacabra (#5) himself. It appears that Babbitt packed both his trademark tall socks and his defensive gameplan (look busy) on the road to basketball redemption. BC Nizhny Novgorod won their October 20th game against Kalev/Cramo 92-84. Babbitt chipped in 2 rebounds and 2 fouls in 4 minutes off the bench.

Nizhny currently sits at 2-3 in the VTB United League. NN is led by former NBA center Primoz Brezec, averaging 14.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, and former UCLA swingman and New York Knicks 2nd round draft pick Dijon Thompson, averaging 13.7 points and 6.3 caroms per contest.

Babbitt is currently the 10th man in the rotation, averaging 6 points and 2.3 boards in 12.3 minutes per game. His role has been increasing of late, however. In Nizhny's recent loss to league-leading BC UNICS Kazan, Luke Babbitt's socks scored a season high 11 points and added 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal in 26 minutes of action.
