Former Rambler men’s basketball player and Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) Player of the Year Cameron Krutwig is heading to Belgium after signing a contract with the Antwerp Giants.
The Antwerp Giants are a member of the Pro Basketball League (PBL), the highest league in Belgian basketball. The team announced Krutwig’s two-year contract June 30.
The former Rambler center chose to forgo his extra year of eligibility provided by the NCAA due to COVID-19, and instead announced his decision to declare for the NBA Draft April 22. The four remaining seniors announced they would be staying at Loyola the following day.
Krutwig’s career at Loyola established him as one of the program’s all-time greats, finishing with two trips to the NCAA Tournament — Final Four 2018 and Sweet Sixteen 2021 — and as one of only four players in MVC history to tally 1,500 points, 800 rebounds and 300 assists. He’s also the winningest player in Loyola history over a four year course, tallying 99 wins.
With this signing, he becomes the seventh player from the Ramblers’ 2018 Final Four team to play professionally overseas.
