The knights added to their roster again on Monday through 6'9'' forward Zephi Sharman. After averaging 10.1 points and 7.8 rebounds for Barking Abbey Academy, Zephi will be looking to continue his strong play in Newcastle whilst also studying a degree in maths.
Team Newcastle are already familiar with Zephi, having played against him as part of Kent Crusaders in 3 highly competitive match-ups between NBL Division 2 and the Patron's Cup. Seeing him first hand brought him to the attention of the team and made the decision to sign him an easy one.
In addition to his NBL experience, Zephi has also represented England at U16 level and Barking Abbey in the Elite Academy Basketball league (EABL), winning the tournament in 2016/17.
