Levi Randolph is the BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week

Randolph is making a big impact on his new team, the New Zealand Breakers of the National Basketball League

Last month, former University of Alabama basketball standout Levi Randolph took another step in his career when he left the NBA’s G-League to sign with the New Zealand Breakers of Australia's NBL, which is arguably the second-most popular basketball league in the world.

Randolph had first breakout week with his new team last week, scoring 20-or-more points twice and leading the Breakers to two wins.

This past Thursday, Randolph dropped 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting and added three rebounds, one steal and one assist in a 91-71 victory over the Brisbane Bullets.

Then on Saturday, he poured in another 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting and grabbed four rebounds to go along with four assists to beat the NBL’s defending champions Perth Wildcats, 83-78.

Due to those efforts, Randolph is BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week.
