ICMYI: Former Pitt Star Justin Champagnie Scores 34 in G-League Game



Over the course of Justin Champagnie’s two-year Pitt career, Pitt fans became accustomed to spectacular stat lines, especially in his sophomore season.

While he has appeared in ten games at the NBA level already for the Toronto Raptors, most of his minutes have come late in games, and he is only averaging one point per contest.

However, Champagnie has also been spending some time playing for the Raptors’ G-League affiliate, Raptors 905, and in his most recent, game, he put up a monster stat line.

In a loss to Capital Go-Go, Champagnie dropped 34 points on 13-for-21 shooting, including 2 for 7 from three-point land. He also grabbed nine rebounds, dished out one assist, and had three steals in the loss.

Now, after playing two games for the G-League squad, Champagnie is averaging 22 points and nine rebounds per game, while shooting 50% from the field.

Last year for Pitt, Champagnie averaged 18 points and 11.1 rebounds per game, earning him First Team All-ACC honors.
