Knox Basketball are excited to have five superstars from last year’s Senior Raiders Men’s team returning for our 2019 NBL1 season.
Knox is excited to welcome backCasey Marshall, Durrell ‘Nuggett’ McDonald, Malik Meunier, Abe Nyok and Josh ‘Westy’ West.
“Abe’s a very good offensive rebounder, he worked hard in the off season on his fitness and shooting and I am looking forward to seeing him bring that energy off the bench.” comments Head Coach Darryl McDonald. “Casey is a very good shooter, high IQ player who will stretch the floor and also create for others.”
“Malik is a Knox junior and has just come off a season in Knox Raiders Youth League. Malik’s opportunities will come as he proves he can compete all the time, definitely has the ability to play on this level, just has to show it day in & day out.
“Josh is another Knox junior looking to get an opportunity. Westy competes hard at both ends and is very smart. His time will come as he proves he can play on this level. It’s great seeing these Knox juniors come through the program”
“Looking for a solid from Durrell. After his first season, he’ll need to step up. Has to show consistency on both ends of the floor. He’s done a lot of work in the off season, seeing him bring it into fruition will be exciting. He’s a very good ball handler, creative and athletic”
Get down to State Basketball Centre on Saturday 30th March to watch our Knox Raiders Women and Knox Raiders Men take the court in their first double header of the 2019 NBL1 season.
