Featured in the Basketball Champions League game for the 44th time, Dee Bost became the fourth player with at least 600 points and 200 assists Wednesday evening.

“I am blessed to even be in those ranks but I’ll take wins over that any day,” he told Eurohoops referring to Galatasaray Nef failing to snap the long home streak of Hapoel Atsmon Holon in the BCL, “Just trying to win.” The Lions now stand at 2-1 at the halfway mark of the double-legged round-robin schedule of Group C.

Leading the comeback bid in Holon Toto Hall, the explosive guard went over the 600-point mark in the fourth quarter of the Regular Season Gameday 3 contest. Besides ending up with 17 points, the five assists upped his tournament total to 221. A great achievement spoiled by the loss.

The 600-200 players

JDA Dijon floor general David Holston sits at 670 points and 308 assists. Former BCL playmakers J’Covan Brown (745pts, 276ast) and Tony Taylor (699pts, 244ast) were also already part of the exclusive club. Bost was the latest entry.

At the club level, he enjoyed BCL stints at AS Monaco and SIG Strasbourg, before resurfacing last season at Galatasaray Nef.
