College careerEdit

Alberts arrived at Gonzaga in 2014, redshirting his first season due to injury.[4] In April 2017, Alberts reached the NCAA Division I Championship Game with Gonzaga.[5]

Shortly after the end of that season, Alberts announced that he planned to transfer from Gonzaga. At the time, he was expecting to earn his bachelor's degree in economics in August 2017 (and ultimately did so), making him immediately eligible to play for another NCAA Division I school under the NCAA's graduate transfer rule. Unlike most players who have taken advantage of the rule, he was eligible for two more seasons.[6] On August 12, 2017, Alberts announced he would attend Long Beach State, where he is being coached by Dan Monson, who coincidentally preceded Mark Few as Gonzaga's head coach.[1]

Dutch national teamEdit

In 2015, Alberts made his debut for the Netherlands national B team.[4] He made his debut for the Dutch national team on August 5, 2016, in a game against Poland.[7]
