Baskonia signs All-EuroCup guard Henry

KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz signed All-EuroCup Second Team point guard Pierria Henry for the coming season, the club announced Wednesday. Henry (1.93 meters, 26 years old) comes off a brilliant season for UNICS Kazan, in which he ranked among the EuroCup's top 10 in assists (sixth, 5.3 apg.) and steals (seventh, 1.5 spg.) and was one of the best rebounding guards in the competition (4.0 rpg.), too. He led UNICS in minutes played (26:39 per game), assists and steals, was second in rebounds and fourth in scoring (10.4 ppg.). Henry was the EuroCup Regular Season MVP after leading UNICS to a share of the best record in that phase (9-1), too.

Henry will debut in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague this season after playing three campaigns in the EuroCup – one each for ratiopharm Ulm of Germany, Tofas Bursa of Turkey and UNICS. He has also played professionally for Hapoel Eliat in Israel and Vita Tbilisi of Georgia. Before that, Henry played four seasons of college basketball at the University of Charlotte.
