Former Duquesne Forward Austin Rotroff Signs Overseas



Former Duquesne forward Austin Rotroff has signed overseas in Europe. Duquesne Athletics announced Thursday that Rotroff will play professionally for BBC Sparta Bartreng. The team competes in the Total League.

The Total League is regarded as the highest level of basketball competition in Luxembourg. Rotroff played for Duquesne and head coach Keith Dambrot from the 2018-19 season to last year.

The 6-foot-10 Wauseon, Ohio native averaged 5.0 points and a team-best 4.8 rebounds in 33 games off the bench for the Dukes. He shot 61.5% from the floor in over 13 minutes per game.

Rotroff becomes the 11th Duquesne alum with Dambrot at the held to play professional ball overseas. Kellon Taylor (2017-19 at Duquesne), Mike Lewis II (2017-19), Marko Krivacevic (2018), Marcus Weathers (2019-21), Baylee Steele (2020), Michael Hughes (2019-2021) and Tavian Dunn-Martin (2019-2021). Jordan Robinson (2015-18), Rene Castro-Caneddy (2016-2018), and Tarin Smith (2017-18) are all inactive players who appeared across the globe.
