Darius Defoe Re-signs With The Eagles September 12, 2011 18:13

The Newcastle Eagles have confirmed this week that they have re-signed starting center Darius Defoe for the upcoming season.

The 6'8'' Defoe averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds last season as the Eagles struggled with numerous injuries, which hampered their run for the BBL title.

Defoe originally joined the Eagles on the recommendation of current Mersey Tigers coach Tony Garbelleto, after learning of his basketball gifts when he played for the Hackney White Heat in his native North London.

Fab Flournoy said: “Darius continues to improve every season and I look forward to seeing his progress continue.”

The Newcastle Eagles  host Team USA Select on the 12th and 13th of  September at Sport Central.
