Luke May, from college champ to Baxi Manresa player – basketball

MANRESA (Barcelona), July 23 (EFE) – Baxi Manresa has announced the signing of American striker Luke May, 24, who is 2.03 meters tall. A player who in 2017 became a University of North Carolina champion after scoring the winning basket that gave his team the NCAA (United States League) title against Kentucky.

May played last season for Dolomiti Energia Trento in Serie A, and also played in the European Championship. In the European competition, he played 14 matches averaging 11.2 points (30.3% in triples), 6.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 25 minutes per match. In fact, this past season was his first as a professional for an American player.

He is a player with good shooting skills from medium and long distances, in addition to being strong and tough to paint. He managed to be the best player on one of the European Cup days and one of the most important players for his team. He signed two campaigns with the Nou Congost team (until 2023).

This season in the European Championship, he left unforgettable performances, for example, against Lokomotiv Kuban where he scored 25 points and earned 15 rebounds for a PIR of 34 points. His match against the Metropolitans also marked him with his 22 points and 9 rebounds for a total of 27 rating points.

The strong striker is the seventh signing of the Catalan team, after the addition of the main goalkeeper Vasiligi Busica, strikers Joe Thomasson, Janis Berezins and Ilias Valtonen, and strikers Marques Steinbergs and Chima Moniki. Specifically with these last two, he would share the position, although Maye was called in to be the initiator.
