Riders add Lewis to the Roster.

Leicester Riders are pleased to announce the signing of US guard Alison Lewis.

Lewis will be added to the roster and make her debut this Saturday in the Riders WBBL Championship clash in Scotland against the Caledonia Pride.

Alison played 50 games for the University of Delaware and after leaving the Fightin Blue Hens she has gone on to have successful pro spells in both Norway and Luxembourg.

She arrives in the East Midlands having averaged 25.3ppg, 8.7rpg, 3.9apg during a 15 game spell with Les Sangliers Wooltz in the Luxembourg-LBBL.

Lewis commented:

“I’m very excited about joining the Riders and I look forward to contributing to a winning season. I plan to bring energy and scoring to help the team continue in their successes on the court”

Coach Marg Jones added:

“We are delighted to welcome Alison to the Riders program. She has been training very hard with us for a week now following her season in Luxembourg and is settling in great.”

“Alison brings additional perimeter scoring to our team along with being a tenacious defender, so obviously fits in very well with the Riders style of play. We’re really looking forward to having her on court with us this weekend against Caledonia”
