Malta basketball Division One title holders Starlites FIJO have extended the contract of Maltese-Australian guard Matt Attard, the club announced on Monday.
In a short statement on their socials, the Naxxar side welcomed Attard back ahead of the new season.
6’2 Attard had joined coach Paul Ferrante’s clan last summer joined after his NAIA college experience at the University of St Francis in the US. Playing as a local foreigner, Attard was an added bonus to the side apart from his American experience.
Attard and the rest of the team, Starlites went on to leapfrog regular season winners Mellieha Libertas to take a second title in a row with a 3-0 sweep against Libertas in the finals. The guard highlighted his long-distance-shooting accuracy with four three-pointers in the title-deciding fixture.
The 24-year-old was also part of the initial Malta squad during the National Team’s preparation for the Games of the Small States of Europe (GSSE 2023) before the list was trimmed for the final squad.
