NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Northwestern Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Former Northwestern shooting guard Tre Demps has signed to play professionally in the Belgium Scooore! League with Belfius Mons-Hainaut.

If there’s one thing Demps can do well, it’s Scooore! in bunches. The son of New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell, Tre averaged 15.7 points per game as a senior and scoring at least 16 in eight of his final 10 games in a Northwestern uniform. His most impressive performance was a 30-point outburst at Iowa.

Demps joins a host of American players in Mons, the capital of the Belgium province Hainaut, including former West Virginia standout Juwan Staten.

After going undrafted, Demps joined the Chicago Bulls for NBA Summer League action but didn’t actually see any game action for the team, which ended up winning the competition out in Las Vegas.

The Belgium league ended in May and will resume in early October. Demps should have the opportunity to see significant playing time on the team, which bowed out in the first round of the 2016 league playoffs
