Former Illinois State basketball star Paris Lee just keeps balling.

Two years after the 2017 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year nearly led ISU to the NCAA Tournament, Lee was named the MVP of the EuroMillions League in Belgium for the 2018-19 season.

Lee, a member of the Telenet Giants Antwerp out of Antwerp, Belgium, led the league in assists at 5.2 per game. He also finished the season with 12 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game.

Lee led his team to back to back league championship series in his first two professional seasons. Last year, he averaged 9.8 points, 4.5 assists, two rebounds and 1.8 steals per game.

The 6-0 Lee hit the national scene during the 2016-17 season after averaging 13 points, five assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game with the Redbirds en route to his Player of the Year honors. He led the Redbirds to a 28-7 overall record (17-1 MVC).
