Crusaders Slam Dunk New Signing

Coventry Crusaders have unveiled their latest recruit from the United States and are pinning their hopes on him to improve their fortunes in the new season.

Adam Stevens arrived this week and has been taken part in some training sessions and promotional events for the team.

Stevens, a graduate from the Mt Vernon Nazarene College in Ohio, has come with a host of statistics behind him to back his potential.

The 22-year-old is 6ft 6in and plays in the small forward position.  He averaged 18 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last season for MVNC. 

Stevens will be heavily involved in the work of the Crusader Foundation, the basketball development side of the Crusaders Basketball Club.

He will be doing a lot of community and school coaching throughout the season, as well as training and playing for the senior team. 

Bupa Crusaders’ Coach Donaldson said:

“He is an excellent shooter from outside and will complement the great inside game the Crusaders already have with Derrick Pope.

“His style of play will lend a lot of speed and excitement for the Crusaders side. 

"Stevens’ speed, along with his far ranging shooting accuracy and his ability to take the ball through the middle and straight to the basket will create a lot of headaches for other teams and be a tremendous bonus for us.

“I am really looking forward to the start of the season.”

Crusaders will be playing in a charity match at the Coventry Sports Centre on 2 September and their first league game will be the following weekend, also at home.
