Glasgow Rocks are able to announce the (re) signing of 6’4” guard, Brice Fantazia, as he makes his return to Glasgow after a year’s absence. During his first stint with the Rocks Fantazia averaged 9.8ppg, 3.4rpg, 2.9apg and shot 45.5% from the field.
Fantazia was initially part of the Glasgow Rocks 2010/11 squad and after a year away playing for Portuguese side S.C. LUSITANIA ANGRO PATRIMONIO MUNDIAL, Coach Davis decided to bring back Fantazia in an effort to strengthen his backcourt in the absence of Danny Huffor. Unfortunately, Danny Huffor acquired a season ending knee injury while he was representing the Scottish National Team in San Marino at the European Championships for Small Countries.
Fantazia will be a welcome addition to the Rocks squad and as an added bonus for Glasgow Rock fans he will no longer need a Certificate of Sponsorship to play for the franchise due to his recent acquisition of Portuguese Citizenship, giving him automatic EU membership status.
Head Coach, Sterling Davis said: “Most fans here will be familiar with Brice and what he can bring. He is a hard-nosed guard who will not back down. He spent last season playing for a very good Portuguese side and hopefully will come back with even more experience than when he left. He unfortunately dealt with a nagging injury in his debut season in a Rocks jersey, so I’m sure he will be ready to come in and show us a new side of him that he was not able to show before.”
Fans will be hoping that the extra experience Fantazia has accumulated over the past few years will put him in good stead for the 2012/13 Season and that his energetic style of play will add another dimension to the Rocks offensive prowess. He is due to arrive in Glasgow on the 1st September as the Rocks prepare to start their official 2012/13 training camp on the 3rd September.
More signing announcements will follow in the coming days, alongside details for the Annual Glasgow Rocks pre-season fixture on the 9th September against the USA Select @ 5:00pm. Tickets for this event are now online at www.glasgowrocks.co.uk with the event being held at the Kelvin Hall ISA. This will be the final ever game to be played at Kelvin Hall with the Glasgow Rocks scheduled to play their opening BBL Fixture against the Newcastle Eagles at the Brand New Commonwealth Arena on the 7th October @ 5:00pm.
