Loughborough Basketball is delighted to welcome 6’4” wing Torron Phillip ahead of the 2023/24 season.
The 20-year-old joins from Central Wyoming College, where he competed in the NJCAA Division One. Prior to this, he played a season at Panther Hoops Prep and two years at Haringly Hawks, where he won the 2020 National Cup Championship and EYBL Central Division Championship.
Phillip will combine playing with his studies at Loughborough University, working towards his BSc in Applied Sport Science with Management.
The 6’4 shooting guard will suit up for Loughborough’s NBL D1 and BUCS teams.
Phillip commented: “I’m looking forward to playing at Loughborough and competing at such a high level. I hope to add more success to the great history of Loughborough University.”
“I’m looking forward to working with Torron. I think he can be an exciting addition to the group who will definitely bring a lot of energy to the team,” added Head Coach Will Maynard
“He has been in the States over the past couple of years, so it’s exciting to see what he can bring to the table. Before the States, Torron was part of Haringey Hawks, so I know he will come to the programme with a great attitude both on and off the court.”
