.. Upstairs/Weert, has been averaging a "double-double" so far in the Dutch league. He is currently the leading scorer & rebounder in the league! After 10 games, the versatile power forward is having 22,3 ppg (57,1%) and 11,1 rpg. Besides that, he is 40% from behind the arc and 61,8% from the foul line. The former graduate of Duquesne University (2004) played the last 2 season in Austria (for Gmunden and Wels). Before that, he was playing in Belgium, where he was under contract with Atomia Brussels, which is no longer active in Division One, for 2 seasons. The 28 year old power forward had 20 points and 13 rebounds in this past weekend's victory over Amsterdam: 69-66. Because of that, Upstairs/Weert is having a 4-6 record now being in 7th place in the league. With the return of Calvin Walls, who had his first league game vs Amsterdam, Upstairs/Weert is expected to improve their record.
