Former Iowa State guard Nick Weiler-Babb had one of the best games of his EuroLeague career, leading Bayern Munich to a 95-93 win over Khimki on Jan. 26.
Weiler-Babb scored 25 points in the contest, which was a new career high for him in EuroLeague play. He also grabbed eight rebounds and dished out five assists. The win improved Bayern Munich to 13-9 on the season, which put them in sixth place in the regular-season standings.
Weiler-Babb has played all 21 games for Bayern Munich to this point, logging nearly 460 minutes on the floor. He’s averaging 9.4 points per game, along with 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game. And, in a percentage that should be familiar to Cyclones fans, he’s shooting 44.4 percent from the 3-point line.
Weiler-Babb went undrafted by the NBA in 2019, but he secured a Summer League invite with the Miami Heat. When he went unsigned, he signed with Riesen Ludwigsburg in the German Basketball League. In one particular game that season, Weiler-Babb had a triple-double — 10 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. He signed with Bayern Munich in July.
Weiler-Babb became a fan favorite at Iowa State, once he transferred to the Cyclones after spending his freshman year at Arkansas. In his senior year, Weiler-Babb led the Cyclones to the Big 12 Tournament championship, as he averaged 9.1 points, five rebounds and four assists per game that season, which lead to All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors. As a junior he averaged 11.3 points per game and shot 44 percent from the 3-point line before a knee injury ended that season.
