Rowley transfers to Leyma Coruna in Spain

Leyma Basquet Coruna (LEB Gold) announced the arrival of 27-year old Trinidad and Tobago ex-international center Kyle Rowley (213-107kg-90, college: St.Mary's, CA). Rowley comes from Araberri, where he spent 5 months before parting ways with the Basque team last week. In 14 games he averaged 8.6ppg and 7.5rpg this season. This will be the second time Rowley joins Leyma Coruna as he played there also the 2014-2015 season, averaging 9.4ppg and 9.1rpg. Rowley also spent pre-season at Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (Liga Endesa) earlier this season.

Pro round up

Guard Devaughn Akoon-Purcell was Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) top basketball player on the international pro-circuit. In Denmark, Akoon-Purcell had a team high 31pts and 8rebs as Bakken scored a comfortable 102-82 win over SISU on February 19. Currently, Akoon-Purcell is the leading scorer in the Ligaen League averaging 22.3ppg. While, Bakken remains in second position with an 18-3 record.

Another outstanding display came from Joey Haywood. In NBL Canada games, Haywood scored 16pts, 4rebs & 3 assists for Halifax Hurricanes in a 108-123 away loss to London Lighting on February 20. It was the best performance for the former 33-year old T&T point guard since his return to the pro-circuit in Canada early this year.

Down in Japan, guard Daniel Dillon (6-4) scored 10pts and 4 assists for Hiroshima in the Japanese B League D2. But in a losing effort the 2nd ranked Hiroshima D still went under to top-ranked Gunma 82-86 on February 18. The loss ended a 12-game winning streak for the Hiroshima Dragonflies.

While in Spain, center Kyle Rowley's Araberri went under to Huesca 71-75 on February 18. Rowley finished with 6pts & 6rebs. With the unexpected loss Araberri dropped to 10th ranked with a 12-12 record. While, Huesca improved to 16th place with a 6-18 record.
