Bahcesehir College Istanbul announced on Sunday that it has retained the services of reserve point guard Thomas Akyazili for another season. Akyazili (1.88 meters, 23 years old) averaged 2.7 points per game in a limited role last season. A native of Antwerp, Akyazili played in that club's youth system and debuted with the first team at age 16. He traveled overseas when he was 18 to play two seasons of college basketball at the University of Colorado before returning to Antwerp, where he spent two more seasons. Last season was Akyazili's first as a professional outside of Belgium.
