Bowman’s back!

Leicester Riders are thrilled to announce the retention of Blake Bowman for the 2023/24 season. 

The high-flying Brit returns for a second season after making his pro debut last year. Bowman, a Derby native, lit up the league with electric dunks and highlight plays, quickly becoming a favourite among the Riders faithful. 

He is touted as one of British basketball’s exciting young talents, taking significant leaps every single year. 

Blake’s father Barry had a spell in the BBL during his professional career, while his uncle, Marc Hawley played 56 games in two seasons for the Riders between 1997 and 1999. 

Bowman continues his Riders family legacy while completing his studies at Loughborough University. 

The club would like to thank the university for their support. 

“I’m super excited to get back out there,” said Bowman. “I’m ready to compete with a group of new guys, and a few returners.”

“I’m hungry to win, after making two finals last season. That lit a fire in me to compete at the highest level.

“With this new young group, I’m ready to fly up and down the court. I’m excited to enter this new era with the team.”
