Oleksandr Lypovyy is one of Ukraine's most promising young players, who continues to improve with each passing season. Lypovyy spent 2012-13 with BC Donetsk in the Ukrainian Superleague, averaging 4.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists-per-game in a total of 44 appearances. Oleksandr can play both the "1" and "2" positions; he can also penetrate to the rim as well as shoot from the outside. He is a tough match for any opponent as his enormous wingspan provides a serious advantage in 1-on-1 situations. Expect Lypovyy to be a backup guard, who can maintain the flow of the game with the star players out of the line-up.
