Surrey Scorchers is delighted to announce the signing of Alex Koukouravas for the 2018/19 BBL Championship season.
The 19-year-old has represented Wales at an international level and was part of the Bristol Flyers Academy between 2014-2016.
The point-guard has captained his national side at Under-16, Under-18 and most recently Under-23.
Koukouravas spoke of his pride in signing for Scorchers: “Signing for Scorchers is an incredible feeling as it has been a dream of mine for many years, but I didn’t think it would happen this fast.
“I feel so privileged and extremely grateful to Coach Creon for this opportunity.”
Currently studying Biochemistry at the University of Surrey, the sports scholar represents Team Surrey Basketball in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS).
Head of Student Sport, Mark Garfoot, believes this is a fantastic achievement for both student sport and Surrey Scorchers.
“It’s a great achievement for not just Alex, but student sport at the University of Surrey.
“He has been working hard over the summer with Creon and deserves the opportunity, and we are delighted that Team Surrey could help him reach the BBL.”
Koukouravas goes straight into the squad for tomorrow’s opening game against the Glasgow Rocks.
