ANTWERP, Belgium – The time has come for Victor Sanders to make his pick on his future, with the former Vandal opting to join the Telenet Giants Antwerp of the Pro Basketball League in Belgium.
Sanders wrapped up his senior season five months ago, averaging 19 points per game as the Vandals finished second in the conference standings.  He picked up Second Team All-Big Sky honors, as well as Second Team NABC All-District 6 recognition.
After the season, Sanders was picked up by the Denver Nuggets to compete in the NBA MGM Summer League.  He saw time in two games, including a start in the final game of the tournament.  On that night, Sanders played 25 minutes, going 4-of-11 from the floor to finish with eight points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks.  He was the only Nugget to finish with a positive plus/minus.
Sanders was incredible for the Vandals, finishing his career second on the all-time scoring list with 1,804 points.  He also ended his four-year tenure in Moscow in second in made 3's, with 272.  He made 440 free throws, the most ever by a Vandal.
Antwerp plays in the top league in Belgium and advanced to the Belgian Championships last season for the first time since the format began in 2005.  Antwerp holds the attendance record for a basketball game in Belgium, with 17,135 fans at a match in January of 2015.  The team has featured a number of American athletes over the years, with players from UCLA, Georgetown and Arkansas, among others.
