Senior Men’s Head Coach, Lucas Allen was thrilled to sign Kavione for the 2020 season “We could not be more excited to welcome Kavione to our team in 2020.  Kavione’s ability to contribute in every way possible on the floor, particularly on the defensive end and through his relentless rebounding are major reasons behind us signing him” Allen added “Kavione has left an outstanding impression through all of our dealings, he is a pro, he is a relentless worker and he is clearly going to add to the culture and environment within our team”.

Kavione will land in Australia next Tuesday, January 28th.  When you see Kavione, please give him your warmest of Southern Peninsula welcome’s as he acclimatises to our wonderful community.
