CBA expansion team Jiangsu Tongxi sign Brandon Costner

During the 2007 NCAA ACC tournament Brandon Costner lead the North Carolina Wolfpack over the heavy favorite Duke Blue Devils by scoring 30 points and grabbing seven rebounds.

The most impressive part of this entire ordeal is that Costner was just a freshman.

In 2009, Costner went undrafted in the NBA and after a few stints in the D-League, he found his niche in China. Last season, Costner was the star player for the Jiangsu Tongxi who were playing in China’s National Basketball League.

This year, Jiangsu Tongxi has been upgraded to the Chinese Basketball League and have decided to renew Costner’s contract.
