‘EL Piti’ joins on the back of a season in his home country with Piratas de Bogota where he averaged 35 minutes a game in 19 outings. It was a season where he averaged 58.6% of his shots made from the field, also going 34.2% from range and 75.6% from the line. On defence, his 9.7 rebounds average is set to make him a threat under the boards.

A valid addition the coach Christian Narciso’s roster, Valencia arrives at a crucial time as the team prepares for the business end of the season, facing Hibernians in the Louis Borg Cup quarter-finals, a Knock Out final against Starlites FIJO, and more importantly, the playoffs.

He joins an already strong side that this season acquired numerous players like Malta captain David Bugeja and import players Connor Ziniach and Nikola Jovanovic.

The 25-year-old arrived in Malta on Thursday and Libertas were swift to welcome their new signing. Speaking to the Times of Malta, Narciso praised the new signing.

“Sebastian (Valencia) is going to be a great addition,” he said.

“He comes to give more options and the four imports will complement each other for the ambitions of the club.”
