We bring you last week’s top former Cavaliers players who are currently playing in pro basketball.
#1. Amandine Toi (5’10”-G-1998, played in 2018-17, plays pro in France). She could not help Charnay (17-5) to beat Mondeville (11-11) in the French LF2 (second division). Toi cannot count Saturday’s game as one of the best ones. She recorded only 3 points in 15 minutes. The league leader Charnay lost 53-62 on the road to the lower-ranked (#7) Mondeville. The Regular Season already ended. It’s Toi’s first season with the team. This year Toi averages 7.5ppg in 22 games she played so far.
#2. Dominique Toussaint (5’9”-G-1998, played in 2016-20, plays in Spain) contributed to Joventut’s victory against the 18th-ranked Melilla (6-22) 59-54 in the Spanish LF Challenge (second division) on Saturday night. She scored 7 points and had 4 steals. Joventut Badalona (3-0) is placed first in the LF Challenge. So far her team won all three games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Toussaint has relatively good stats this season 10.1ppg, 4.1rpg, 2.2apg and 1.2spg. She is a naturalized Dominican.
