Another season, another chance for both Ross Bekkering and Ali Farokhmanesh to be honored in Holland.
The Dutch Basketball League recently announced a number of awards, including Bekkering of the GasTerra Flames being named to the All Defensive First Team as an integral part in Groningen posting a league-best 32-4 record this season.
Farokhmanesh also claimed an individual award. The University of Northern Iowa alum was named Sixth Man of the Year in the Dutch Basketball League by averaging 9.9 points and 2.1 assists per game, while shooting 53% from the field and 37% from three-point in 26 minutes per game.
Congratulations to both Ross and Ali.
