London Lions announce the acquisition of 6’9” Centre, Jordan Jackson ahead of the new season.
Jackson has gained all his basketball experience in the USA, most recently graduating from McMurry University but has had spells at Florida A&M before being tracked by the Lions.
Born in Leeds, Jackson will enter his first season as a pro after averaging just shy of 9 points and 5 boards.
Jackson says “I am glad to be a part of this great programme with focussed players and great staff. I can feel nothing but success for our season. I just want to thank the Lions for bringing me on board and I’m ready to get the train rolling”.
Coach Vince Macaulay added “Jordan is strong and has a strong presence. . I think he has a learning curve ahead of him but he has shown huge athleticism and a willingness to learn, he will certainly help us in the paint and on the glass”.
Next action for Jackson and his team mates will be tonight when they face Bakken Bears, Danish Champions, Monday September the 9th, at University of East London . (tickets available at https://www.thelondonlions.com/sports-dock-games/)
