Leicester Riders last night announced the signing of US guard Alison Lewis.
Lewis will be added to the roster and make her debut today in the Riders WBBL Championship clash in Scotland against Caledonia Pride.
Alison played 50 games for the University of Delaware and after leaving the Fightin Blue Hens she has gone on to have successful pro spells in both Norway and Luxembourg.
She arrives in the East Midlands having averaged 25.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game during a 15 game spell with Les Sangliers Wooltz in the Luxembourg-LBBL.
“I’m very excited about joining the Riders and I look forward to contributing to a winning season,” said Lewis. “I plan to bring energy and scoring to help the team continue in their successes on the court”
Coach Marg Jones added: “We are delighted to welcome Alison to the Riders program. She has been training very hard with us for a week now following her season in Luxembourg and is settling in great.”
“Alison brings additional perimeter scoring to our team along with being a tenacious defender, so obviously fits in very well with the Riders style of play.
“We’re really looking forward to having her on court with us this weekend against Caledonia.”
