Artūrs Ausējs signs with VEF Rīga for the 2018/2019 season
The sharpshooting Latvian Artūrs Ausējs joins the VTB United League club VEF Rīga for the next season.
With hard work Artūrs slowly has proved himself as one of the best three-point shooters in the Baltic region, and in 2017 he earned spot in the Latvian National team. Last season he represented Lithuanian Basketball League club Pieno Zvaigzdes and helped the team to win the Baltic Basketball League championship.
In 40 Lithuanian league games Artūrs averaged 10.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal, while in 18 Baltic league games he averaged 11.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steal. His 3 point % was 34% in Lithuanian league, while in the Baltic league he shot behind the arc with impressive 42.6%. Other VTB League teams should start worrying.
