It didn't take long for former TCU standout Kyan Anderson to find a home with a professional team. Anderson signed a contract this week with Crelan Okapi Aalstar of the Scooore League, the highest level of professional basketball in Belgium.

Okapi Aalstar was founded in 1949 and is located in Alast, Belgium. The franchise has experienced success as of late, winning the 2012 Belgian Cup before taking home the Belgian Supercup in 2013 and 2014. Okapi Aalstar's most successful alumni is current Milwaukee Bucks forward Chris Copeland.

Anderson will be joined in Belgium by fellow Americans Abe Lodwick (Washington State), Lee Cummard (BYU), John Tofi (UTEP), and Ian Hanavan (Evansville). The team is coached by Brad Dean, the former Loyola Marymount star who also coaches the Swedish National Basketball Team.

After a dominant senior season, Anderson finished his collegiate career ranked in the top ten in 13 different statistical categories at TCU, setting school records for both career steals and career games played. He finished sixth in all-time points scored as a Horned Frog with 1,624. Anderson racked up 118 career starts in a TCU uniform, including every single game from December 22, 2011 until his senior day on March 12, 2015.

The next chapter of Anderson's career will begin on August 25 when Okapi Alastar faces off against Dudelange of the Luxembourg Basketball League in a preseason contest.
