Ryan Carabott joins from Starlites
Last season’s men’s Division One runners up Mellieha Libertas announced their first summer signing when they named US guard-forward Tedrick Wolfe on Wednesday.
The 6’5 player joins after his senior year at NAIA college Wayland Baptist University. With the Pioneers, Wolfe averaged 24.2 minutes a game in 31 appearances. He put up an average 15.6 points on a 52.7% field goal percentage. He was accurate 75.9% from the line.
Wolfe is the club’s first signing since bidding farewell to three players as Nenad Bukva joined Depiro BC, Nikola Jovanovic joined Luxol, and Miguel Falzon switched to Starlites to play for their Division Two squad.
The addition of a player like Wolfe should be a breath of fresh air for new coach Ian Terribile who was already without import players Conor Ziniach and Sebastian Valencia after the former had a premature ending to his contract due to injury and the latter heading back to Colombia to rejoin Piratas.
Terribile, who was appointed coach back in June in a return to the club, will have the tough task of replacing former coach Christian Narciso who led the team to the Louis Borg Cup and finished runners-up in the season’s Super Cup, Shield, and Knock Out competitions last season.
Carabott heads north
Meanwhile, the Times of Malta can confirm that former Starlites guard Ryan Carabott has moved to Libertas prior to the transfer deadline.
Carabott was part of Paul Ferrante’s Starlites squad to win two titles in a row, both times cruising past Mellieha in the finals with a 3-0 sweep.
