Joondalup Times - - SPORT -

THE Joondalup Wolves have signed for­mer Perth Wild­cats player Earnest Ross for next year’s SBL sea­son.

The Auburn and Mis­souri alumni was on the Wild­cats NBL ros­ter in 2014-15 and suited up for the Ger­ald­ton Buc­ca­neers in 2018.

The Wolves said with broad in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence, the 6’5” Guam­born Ocea­nia ath­lete was a mar­quee fit for the club.

Coach Ben Et­tridge had played a piv­otal role in se­cur­ing his ser­vices af­ter recog­nis­ing his tal­ent dur­ing the SBL sea­son and more closely at the All-Star week­end.

“We are ex­cited at the prospect of Earnest join­ing the Wolf­pack,” Et­tridge said on the club’s web­site.

“His all-round ver­sa­til­ity and play-mak­ing abil­ity make him the ideal ad­di­tion at both ends of our sys­tem.

“Earnest has the abil­ity to make those around him bet­ter, do­ing what it takes to make the team bet­ter also. We can­not wait for he and his new young to be in Wolf­pack green, ideally for sev­eral years to come.”

The Wolves said they as­pired to be the “desti­na­tion of choice for bas­ket­ball in WA” and had more than 4000 mem­bers. The club has won nine SBL cham­pi­onships be­tween their men’s and women’s teams.

For­mer Wild­cat Earnest Ross has signed up with the Joondalup Wolves.
