BG GOETTINGEN adds forward Raffington
July 6, 2010
BC Goettingen continued its hard work to prepare for its first Eurocup campaign by signing power forward Jermain Raffington on Tuesday. Raffington (205, 25) arrives from fellow German side BBC Bayreuth, which he helped achieve promotion to Germany's top division last season. He averaged 10.2 points and 4.6 rebounds last season, his second at Bayreuth. Raffington began his professional career with BV Chemnitz 99 in the 2007-08 season. He was anointed as one of German basketball's best young players early in his career and named the outstanding player at the Dirk Nowitzki Basketball Academy in September 2002. He also played for the German junior national teams at the under-16 and U-20 levels.
"I think the time has come for the move to the Bundesliga now," Raffington said. "I have international experience through my time in the national team has, but playing for an established team is something completely different. What Goettingen achieved last season of madness. I want to do everything in my power to help the team and make the fans like me."
