Former Flint NW and MSU standout Kelvin Torbert to play in Greece

Posted: September 8, 2010 by Jared Field in Professional

Kelvin Torbert, the former Mr. Basketball at Flint Northwestern and standout at Michigan State will continue his professional career in Greece this season after a stint in Belgium. Torbert is still probably the most dominant high school I’ve seen up close. He was unstoppable.

Here’s more from Mlive:

Torbert will play for Iraklis in Greece’s 1A Division. Greece has one of the top pro leagues in Europe. Many NBA players have played for Greek teams, including swingman Josh Childress, who famously spurned re-signing with the Atlanta Hawks to sign with Olympiakos a few seasons ago. Childress will return to the NBA with the Phoenix Suns this season.
