Talor Battle Heads To Belgium

Talor Battle, in his third season playing professional basketball overseas, is headed to Belgium after reaching an agreement with Belfius Mons-Hainaut, the defending runners-up of the Belgian Ethias League.

Very little needs to be said about Battle; he is one of the greatest players in Penn State basketball history, averaging double-digit scoring in all four seasons as a Nittany Lion. In his senior year, Battle carried the blue and white to the Big Ten Championship game and the NCAA Tournament. Battle became the only player in Big Ten history to tally 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, and 500 assists in a career.

Battle has played in France, Germany, and Italy in his career, and averaged 17.5 points, 4.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game last season for the Italian club Capo d’Orlando. Battle has also had a stint in the NBA Summer League with the Los Angeles Clippers.

As for Belfius Mons-Hainaut, not much is known about them, other than that they won the Belgian Ethias League in 2011, they came in second last year and they employ the league’s leader in steals per game (Josh Bostic, formerly of the University of Findlay) fourth leading scorer (Ronell Taylor, formerly of UAB).
