Update (January 30, 2014):
Scorers 1st is proud to announce that Mitchel Anderson has reached an agreement to play with BC Mess in Luxembourg (N2). We look forward to following Mitchel's play in Luxembourg the rest of this season.
For rookie free agent Mitchel Anderson, the process of becoming a professional basketball player has been a learning experience.
The 6-foot-5 swingman who captured two Division II NCAA championship titles and earned All-American honors has learned that patience and staying ready is all of a part of being a pro. After making an impact at the Scorers 1st Showcase in Las Vegas last July, Anderson has continued his training regiment and remained dedicated to finding the right opportunity overseas.
Mitchel Anderson recently took time to talk about his workout routine, personal goals toward his pro career and leaning heavily on words of encouragement:
Can you explain what your current training schedule entails -- what you go through daily/weekly in order to develop your game?
I workout in the weight room about 5 to 6 days a week, on various body parts. I also do plyometrics twice a week to work on my jumping ability and quickness. Along with that, I run about 2 to 3 miles on the treadmill everyday I'm at the gym. As far as basketball skills I get in the gym four times a week and while I'm there I work on ball handling, shooting both stationary and of the dribble, finishing at the basket, and some simple post moves.
What do you feel is your strongest attribute you can bring to a team?
The strongest attribute I can bring to a team is probably my shooting and ability to space the floor but also not being one dimensional and limited to just shooting and being able to finish at the rim. Another strong attribute I have is my feel for the game and being able to let the game come to me instead of forcing the issue.
This is just the start of good things to come for Danilo Barthel.
After a breakout start to the 2013-14 season in the BEKO BBL, Barthel has earned AllStar honors after being named as a reserve for Team National in the BEKO BBL AllStar Game the league announced today.
"Having Danilo be named to the AllStar team is a true testament to the dedication and drive he has toward his profession," said Scorers 1st CEO and NBA and FIBA certified agent Gerrit Kersten-Thiele.
"We couldn't be more proud of him and we look forward to watching him grow as an AllStar."
All of Larry Gordon's hard work continues to pay off.
We are extremely proud to pass along the news that Gordon has been selected to the BEKO BBL AllStar Game as a reserve for Team International the league announced today.
The honor is well-deserved for the Phoenix Hagen's swingman.
"This is very exciting time for both Larry and Scorers 1st. Since coming out of a small Division 2 school (Cal Poly Pomona) and now watching him grow into an AllStar in Germany, I am so unbelievably proud of Larry and all he has accomplished," said Scorers 1st CEO and NBA and FIBA certified agent Gerrit Kersten-Thiele.
"We can't wait to cheer him on at the AllStar Game."
Balloting is officially underway in Germany for the BEKO BBL AllStar Game and includes Scorers 1st nominees Larry Gordon (Phoenix Hagen), Danilo Barthel (Fraport Skyliners) and Josh Parker (MBC).
The annual event will be held on January 18, 2014 in Bonn, Germany and feature a slam dunk and three-point shootout contest, prior to the AllStar Game between Team National and Team International.
