Team Newcastle have moved to confirm their second new signing ahead of the season; Onyekachi Nzerem, formerly of New York Tech in NCAA Division II.
The adaptable 6'6'' Guard/ Forward will be representing the club in both BUCS and NBL leagues where his ability to score at all three levels should add further potency to Newcastle's offense. In his last season in the NCAA, he averaged 9 points and 4 rebounds over 20 games as a starter, with strong efficiency both from the field and beyond the 3-point line.
Known as Kachi, he has also proven himself to be a tough defender and should fit well with the current group of players at the club. In addition to playing, he will be studying for a Master's degree in E-business marketing.
