Limoges adds McCalebb for Last 32

Days before its return to the Eurocup Last 32, back-to-back French champion Limoges CSP bolstered its backcourt until the end of the season with the addition of speedy point guard Bo McCalebb, a former Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy winner. McCalebb (1.83 meters, 30 years old) was twice an All-Euroleague selection, in 2009-10 when he helped lead Partizan Belgrade reach the Final Four, and in 2011-12 when he led Euroleague in scoring with 16.9 points while playing for Italian side Montepaschi Siena. He also reached the 2011 Final Four with Siena and has six Euroleague campaigns under his belt – with Partizan, Siena, Fenerbahce Istanbul and FC Bayern Munich. In 106 games in that competition, McCalebb has averaged 13.6 points, 2.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals. Since 2009, he ranks in the Euroleague’s top 10 in total points (eight with 1,390) and in steals (third with 173). McCalebb has only played one Eurocup game in his career, last season when he was with Bayern.

After making his professional debut with Mersin Buyuksehir Belediyesi of Turkey in the 2008-09 season, McCalebb has helped Partizan win the Serbian League, Serbian Cup and Adriatic League titles, contributed with Siena in winning back-to-back Italian League, Italian Cup and Italian Supercup titles, and has lifted Turkish Cup and a Turkish League title with Fenerbahce. McCalebb was also a member of the F.Y.R. of Macedonia national team, and has helped them reach EuroBasket 2011 semifinals.
