OXFORD, Miss. – Incoming Ole Miss freshman Sebastian Saiz and the Spain national team are off to a hot start at the FIBA Under-19 World Championships in the Czech Republic this week.
Saiz and Spain are 3-0 after posting wins over Canada, Korea and Croatia to win “Group A” pool play. Saiz led the Spaniards with a double-double after posting 12 points and 15 boards in the 104-70 victory over Korea and added 11 points and eight rebounds in the win against Croatia. He posted two points and seven boards in a 81-70 win over Canada. The 6-9 forward has shot 50-percent from the floor in three games and is averaging 10.0 rebounds per game.
As the “Group A” winners, Spain will now face the other pool winners in the medal round beginning next week.
A teammate of fellow signee Janari Joesaar at Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas, Saiz was a member of the Spanish Under-18 national team and averaged 6.6 points and 5.4 rebounds last year at the European Championships. He recorded a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds versus Lithuania and was rated one of the top prospects in Europe by EuroHoops Magazine.
