Another season of basketball is here, and Maltese basketball players abroad have or will be looking to start their commitments, mostly at new clubs. The Times of Malta Sportsdesk looks at the Maltese professionals plying their trade overseas in another segment in the ‘Maltese Abroad’ series.


Malta forward Aaron Falzon added another double-digit game to his repertoire last weekend as he solidifies his case for the regular starter position at the Arkadia Traiskirchen Lions.

Falzon has been in the starting five since joining the BSL team and was in form on Saturday as he scored 16 points in an 87-80 win over the Raiffeisen Flyers Catfish.

The Lions face Swans Gmunden next on October 31st as the team currently stands in fourth place of the league on a win and a loss so far.
