Myles Stephens made a big step in his career for next season after signing with Finnish power Salon Vilpas Vikings. Stephens played his rookie season in Germany's Pro B Division, putting up 21.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game for EWE Baskets Oldenbur's affiliate team. The Princeton graduate is no stranger to being a go-to player on his teams, having been named to the All-Ivy League First Team twice in his collegiate career. Korisliiga represents the next step as the 2017 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year continues to prove himself in Europe.
He will join one of the best teams in Finland in Vilpas, who will be coming off a stellar regular season where they sported a 30-6 record, good for a tie for the top spot in the Korisliiga standings. The Vikings have also retained Jeremiah Wood for next season as they continue to load up their roster with other players for the chance to finally secure their first Korisliiga title.
