Chris Tang is a promising young basketball player who left his home in China to pursue his dreams in the United States.

In America, Tang found national recognition — and all the pressure that comes with it — during the explosion of "Linsanity" last year.

This is his story.

  • Birthday: 1/10/96
  • NBA Position: Point Guard
  • Class: Freshman
  • Ht: 6-3
  • Wt: 190
  • Hometown: Jiangsu, China
  • High School: Canarias Basketball Academy

Originally from China, Tang came to the United States in the 8th grade and played one season for Oak Hill Basketball Academy — one of the most prestigious basketball camps (28 McDonald's All-Americans) and is currently committed to play via sports scholarship for UC Riverside.

He'll be playing as a freshman for a Division I school (UC Riverside) during the 2014-15 season w/ limited playing time because of seniority...

...to be continued.
