Three former Bonnies have committed to the St. Bonaventure TBT alumni team, Brown & White, as planning and recruiting for competition in July 2020 begins. Demitrius Conger (Class of '13), Denzel Gregg (Class of '17), and Matt Mobley (Class of '18) have all chosen to wear their alma mater colors again next summer in Syracuse.
A St. Bonaventure TBT team was explored for 2019, but fell apart late in the process due to players having various commitments to other teams and tournaments. Between being familiar with the application process and coming close to entering last year's tournament, along with an early organization process, TBT's growing popularity, and fan momentum for 2020, the players are confident in having success this time around.
From GoBonnies.com's "Bonnies In The Pros" page, read more on the three former Bona standouts and their professional careers:
DEMITRIUS CONGER – 2009-13 NBA Summer League / Spain / France / Australia / Belgium / Italy / Dominican Republic / Greece / Israel
Demitrius Conger will suit up in Spain in 2019-20 after signing with Real Betis Energia Plus Sevilla. Conger played in four leagues in three countries last year including the NBA Summer League last summer with the Boston Celtics.
Conger has been a star around the world, helping his squad to the Belgian Supercup championship in 2017 before moving to Australia and earning All-Australian NBL Forward of the Year honors in 2018 from Australiabasket.com, finishing second in league MVP voting. Now in his seventh season of pro basketball, he’s played on three continents and in seven countries during his career after graduating from St. Bonaventure in 2013.
Conger played all 42 games in 2016-17 for the Antwerp Giants of the Belgian League, averaging 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists in over 26 minutes per game. One of two players on his team to play in every game, he previously played in the Dominican Republic, Italy, Greece and Israel. Previously, he was the fifth-leading scorer in the Greek League at 18.1 points per game.
Over the course of his career with the Bonnies, Conger scored 1,206 career points (26th all-time), grabbed 645 rebounds, dished out 249 assists and recorded 83 steals. He is one of just three players in program history with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 200 assists. A proven consistent, healthy player, Conger started each of the final 92 games of his collegiate career, dating back to his sophomore campaign. He was also a key member of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Championship team.
DENZEL GREGG – 2013-2017 Austria / Bosnia / France
Gregg became the 20th player to play for the Bonnies under head coach Mark Schmidt to sign a professional contract when he joined the Oberwart Gunners in August 2017. He became the second Bonnies alum to play for Oberwart as former teammate Andell Cumberbatch played there the past two seasons.
His first pro season was a successful one as he averaged 16.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game and was named Second Team All-Austrian League. He also won the league's slam dunk contest.
In August 2018, he signed a new deal to move to France with Denain ASC Voltaire. He suited up in 21 games in 2018-19, averaging 9.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 19.7 minutes per game, shooting over 53 percent (56-for-105) from the floor. After playing in France, he agreed to sign in Bosnia in October 2019 and will play there during the 2019-20 season.
Gregg finished his career fifth on St. Bonaventure's all-time blocks list with 137. Gregg played in 114 games over his career and was a part of teams that won 78 games, making him the third-winningest player ever at St. Bonaventure. He scored 816 career points.
In 2016-17, he helped lead the Bonnies to a 22-9 record and a share of the A-10's regular season title. St. Bonaventure reached the NIT. In 2015-16, the Bonnies finished 20-12.
MATT MOBLEY 2016-18 France / Belgium / NBA Summer League
A 6-foot-3 guard from Worcester, Mass., Mobley was a two-time All-Conference player for the Bonnies after transferring for his junior and senior seasons. Following a stint with the Utah Jazz in the NBA Summer League in 2018, he signed with Spirou of the Belgium pro league.
Mobley had an outstanding first season as the pro playing for Spirou. Last year, Mobley started his pro career with Spirou of the Belgium pro league and he was named to the league’s All-Offensive Team after shooting better than 51 percent from the floor. Mobley, who helped the Bonnies to the 2018 NCAA Tournament, led all league players in scoring counting the regular season and playoffs after posting over 20 points per game.
In June 2019, Mobley announced he would sign with the top-tier French league LNB Pro A squad Elan Bernais, a franchise that has won nine French league titles.
As a senior, Mobley helped lead St. Bonaventure to a 26-8 record, an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament and a second place finish in the Atlantic 10.
A first team All-Conference selection by the A-10 coaches, Mobley was the sixth-leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 at 18.1 points per game in 2017-18. He had 15 games with 20 points or more including three 30-point games. Mobley set a school record with 105 three-point field goals, shooting 37 percent from behind the arc. He also set an A-10 record with nine three-pointers in the Bonnies' A-10 Tournament win over Richmond. Mobley also averaged 5.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for the season.
Mobley also earned All-District honors from both the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association in 2018.
