KEITH CLOSS

SG Bergishe Loewen (Liga Mediterranean) signed experienced 42-year old American ex-NBA center Keith Closs (224-77, college: CCSU). He started the season with the Tonga NT.

Closs helped the Tonga National Team capture gold in the 2019 Copa Mitchell Cup (Santiago, Dominican Republic). He averaged an impressive 12.3ppg, 13.3rpg and Blocks-1 (8.0bpg). Closs was later named LatinBasket.com All-Mitchell Cup Defensive Player of the Year along with Finals MVP.

The SG Bergishe Loewen added the experienced Closs to help the German club win the 2019 Liga Mediterranean Cup in Barcelona, Spain. The international cup will take place May 22-27.

In 2007 (eleven years after he left the college) Closs was drafted by Tulsa 66ers (D-League) in fifth round (67th overall).

The former Central Connecticut State University staris in his 23rd (!!!) season in pro basketball. Closs' team won Mitchell Americas Cup. He was voted Latinbasket.com All-Mitchell Americas Cup 1st Team in 2016 and 2019.

It's very possible he may end his playing career at SG Bensberg Loewen.

Closs could be described: Keith is a game-changing shot-blocker who provides his team a protector at the basket and defensive presence in the paint. An athlete with great length, Keith has good strength and runs the floor well. He has the knowledge of the game of basketball and how to play the sport.
