Bisping To Begin Pro Career In Sweden

Recent Siena grad Brett Bisping is set to begin his professional career in Sweden, after signing to play  for Boras Basket of the Basketligan, the top league in that country.

Bisping, a hard-working do-it all-player, recently finished a standout career for the Saints and ranks 11th all time in scoring (1,528) and 4th in rebounding (1,024) in program history. He graduated as the only player in Siena history to surpass both 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds for his career. Bisping was named an NABC District I Second Team, Second Team All-MAAC, and MAAC All-Tournament Team selection this past season after leading the conference and ranking 24th nationally with 9.7 rebounds per game.

“I’m excited and honored for this opportunity,” said Bisping. “It’s a great club with a great coach, and I think they’ve done a really good job of putting together a strong team. I feel very blessed to have had all the family, friends and people from Siena who have helped me along the way. Now it’s time to put in the work, hold up my end of the deal, and prove that I have the talent and work ethic to succeed at the next level.”

The Basketligan season begins in October and runs through April.
