Former Montville standout Travis Warech has signed a two-year deal with Ludwigsburg MHP Giant, a team in Germany’s top league it was reported recently.

Terms of his signing were not disclosed. Last year, Warech had a very successful rookie season. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound athlete averaged 10.0 points and 5.0 rebounds for Oettinger Rockets Gotha in the Pro A league.

Warech, now 23, was a well-known shooter on some talented Montville teams. In his senior year, he averaged 20.7 points and 8 rebounds a game. He accounted for 40 percent of the 10-13 team’s offense during the 2008-09 season. He finished up as a 1,000-point career varsity scorer and a First Team All-Morris County selection.

After high school, he played for several years at St. Michael’s College in Vermont and was also a career 1,000-point scorer for the Division II school. He transferred to Ithaca College for his senior year and had a highly successful season averaging 16 points and eight rebounds for a team that finished 21-9 and went to the NCAA Division III Sweet 16.

“Travis Warech can play at positions 2 (shooting guard) and 3 (small forward), and give us good minutes here,” Ludwigsburg coach John Patrick said. “He is an intelligent player who works hard and still has a lot of potential.”
