Hugo Besson is a name that you will hear in the coming months as the young Frenchman is shining in the Australian championship. Announced in the first round of the next NBA Draft, the young back once again exploded with a card of more than 20 points.
The young French nuggets are doing particularly well at the start of the season … In the French championship for example, the pivot Ismaël Kamagate is establishing himself as a reference with in particular a match of 17 points and 10 rebounds this Friday, and especially a sublime 90% success from the free throw line, which is more than promising for an interior.
And what about Moussa Diabaté, who somehow pulls out of the game with a Michigan team in great difficulty in the NCAA. With 7.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 against on average in just 20 minutes of playing time, he shows that he can be effective in a short time, and his activity may well catch the eye of some NBA franchises.
Hugo Besson still exceeds 20 points in the NBL!
But the one who shines most now is undoubtedly Hugo Besson, who has chosen to join the Australian professional league and the Sky Sports Breakers team. After being noticed thanks to his excellent celebration in his second match, the former top scorer of Pro B was once again illustrated this Sunday with a big offensive card. In the defeat, he was able to catch the eye of the scouts.
Hugo Besson (what a goated name), # 25, starts the game well and hits his first 3, coming off a screen. Mechanics look great.

Out of the screen, playing isolation, Hugo Besson is able to punish behind the arc quite easily. Thanks to this skill, he finished the game with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists, all at 50% shooting and 50% at 3 points (5/10). Do better than LaMelo Ball is obviously not enough for him, the young tricolor wants to storm the NBL and establish himself as a star on post 2. He is on track to succeed.
If he continues like this, Hugo Besson will grab the NBL Rookie of the Year title before packing for the NBA. More and more Scouts will travel to New Zealand to see the Breakers.
