Athletic American David Shepard has signed on as Werribee Basketball’s first male import for the 2019 season.
The 6’7 power forward will add international experience to the squad, having played professionally in Argentina.
Played his US college career at Linderwood, Shepard was a consistent point scorer and used his height to dominate the boards.
Shepard said he was excited by the challenge of the Big V league.
“I am very excited for this opportunity to play in Australia. I look forward to competing at a very high level,” Shepard said.
“I look forward working as hard as possible to insure the team’s success.”
Championship Men coach Warren Estcourt said he was looking forward to seeing what Shepard can do on court.
“David brings us great size, athleticism, enthusiasm, and shooting ability. He can guard any position and I can’t wait to see how he fits into our program,” Estcourt said.
“David’s skill set will make him one of the best imports in the league in 2019 and I am confident he will be a wonderful addition for the club both on and off the court.”
The Big V season starts in March.
