Trevor Jasinsky is headed for the Netherlands.

Jasinsky, a Camas High School graduate and four-year basketball standout at Western Washington University, has signed a professional contract to play for Basketball Academy Limburg of the Dutch Basketball League, Western Washington announced Tuesday.

“I feel extremely blessed to get this opportunity and can’t wait to start my professional career,” Jasinsky said in a release from WWU.

Basketball Academy Limburg is based out of Weert in the southeastern part of the Netherlands. Jasinsky is expected to join his new team in the middle of August for the upcoming 2020-21 season.

The 6-foot-8 forward made 89 consecutive starts for Western Washington from his sophomore to senior years. This past season, Jasinsky was a first team all-Great Northwest Athletic Conference selection, earned All-West Region honors and was Western Washington’s co-male athlete of the year for 2019-20.

Jasinsky averaged a team-best 14.8 points a game last season for the Vikings, while also averaging 5.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

He graduated from Western in March with a degree in marketing.

“Trevor was a remarkable player for us during his career, but was an even better leader in our program and a really strong student-athlete,” Western coach Tony Dominguez said. “There is no doubt in my mind he will be successful on this next journey in his basketball career, and we can’t wait to follow his success like so many other Vikings have had professionally.”

Basketball Academy Limburg is one of nine clubs in the Dutch league. Clubs play in arenas ranging on capacity from 1,000 to 4,350. League rules permit clubs to have as many as five foreign players.

The 2019-20 season was canceled prematurely in March because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 2020-21 season is set to begin in September, although one club, Apollo Amsterdam, announced it will not be playing this season.

“There are so many people to thank that have helped in the process – my family, teammates, coaches, trainers, support staff,” Jasinsky said. “It’s been a true team effort and (I’m) honored I get to take this next step in my basketball career.”
