16 teams, 11 countries: Catching up with BYU basketball players abroad

It has been a crazy year for former Cougars playing basketball around the world as 12 previous BYU players have played for 16 teams, in 11 different countries. Some are playing big roles on some of the top teams in China, Poland and Italy while others have changed teams and leagues while trying to find the right fit and an opportunity to shine.

Here is a look at where former Cougars played this season and how they have performed so far.

Charles Abouo, Denain (France-ProB)

Abouo has had a very solid campaign during his first year in France. His most productive recent outing came in a 75-69 win over Saint Chamond when he totaled 15 points on 6 for 13 shooting from the floor, including 2 for 5 from distance. He added four rebounds, three assists and a pair of blocks in 26 minutes.

On the season, he is averaging 9.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting to go along with 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 20.1 minutes.

Agustin Ambrosino, Gandia (Spain-LEB Silver)

Ambrosino played the first part of the season in Spain for a struggling team, but the left before the season was over. He has since found a new home in Bolivia where he will play for Calero De Potosi.

In 18 games in Spain, he averaged 7.8 points on 35.1 percent shooting with 4.0 rebounds in 23 minutes.

Rashaun Broadus, Vechta (Germany-BBL)

Broadus started out his season on one of the top teams in Lithuania before he moved on to Germany where he is playing for a team that has won just three of 32 games. His best showing in recent weeks came in a 91-90 loss to Jena when he finished with a team-high 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the floor, including 3 for 5 from beyond the arc. He added a game-best seven assists, three rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes.
