Kristaps Porzingis of Baloncesto Seville has been named the winner of the 2014-15 Eurocup Rising Star Trophy.
The 19-year-old Latvian big man comes off a strong season - his second in the competition - for Seville, which he led to the Eurocup Last 32. The Eurocup Rising Star Trophy recognizes the most outstanding player in the competition who was younger than 22 years of age on July 1 of the summer before the season started.
