This happened way back on the 17th of April but I have just got back to becoming the lead blogger here at Air Alamo. We would like to take this time to congratulate Alonzo Gee on being name the Developmental League’s Rookie of the Year.
“On behalf of the Toros and Spurs organizations, we are pleased and excited to have been able to share in Alonzo’s success this year. It has been a privilege to coach him,” said Quin Snyder, Toros head coach. “He has been relentless in his commitment to develop as a basketball player and most importantly, Alonzo is a great teammate. He is a young man that has had a positive impact on all of us, and we congratulate him on the award.”
In 36 games (35 starts) for Austin, Gee averaged 21.0 points, shooting 51 percent (269-of-528) from the field to go with 6.6 rebounds in 38.2 minutes. Gee helped Austin to a 31-18 record, good for second place in the Western Conference. He scored in double figures in 35 games this season, recording four double-doubles. He scored a season-high 34 points in a 127-94 win over the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Jan. 6 in Austin. A four-year standout at Alabama, Gee also participated in this year’s NBA D-League All-Star Game in Dallas, scoring 10 points, grabbing six rebounds and dishing out three assists in 17 minutes.
