The London Lions return GB point guard, Jules Dang-Akodo after one of his most promising season’s to date.
The 6’3” guard was a stalwart last season, starting 13 of the 14 League games played. Averaging 7 points and 3 boards per game, Jules set the tone for the Lions’ pace of play.
A member of GB’s 2017 Eurobasket squad the young Brit, who just turned 24 this summer, has also played at Under 18 and Under 20 for GB. Lightning quick and a great defender, he enters his second season with the Lions, bringing added consistency.
Lions boss Vince Macaulay commented, “I really enjoyed coaching Jules, he is eager to learn and gives great effort all the time, I believe he has enjoyed being next to Justin Robinson and I’ll be challenging him to become as good as the League MVP in his decision making and knowledge of the floor.”
Dang-Akodo had this to say, “I’m happy and grateful to be back with the Lions again. It is going to be an exciting season and I for one am really looking forward to it.”
Fans will get to see the team for the first time on the 15th of September, when Basketball Champions League opponents, Neptunas Klaipeda will be the visitors
