Further to our previous announcement, we are delighted to reveal the signing of our new American guard #55 Christian Keeling.

Christian, who is 6 foot 3 and 22 years-old has signed his first-ever professional contract with the Rocks following a very successful collegiate career with Charleston Southern and North Carolina Tar Heels, the former school of Basketball legend Michael Jordan.

Christian ended his NCAA career with an impressive 1,878 points and 692 rebounds over four years in the top tier of intercollegiate athletics shooting a field goal % of .448 and a 3 point % of .349.

 

Christian himself said of the move

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Rocks family this year.

“I’m ready to get to work, I’m excited and I’m hungry.

“We are a young team and It’s a thrilling opportunity. I’m looking forward to continuing my development and seeing my chemistry with the guys over the coming months.

“I can’t wait to get on the court and start pushing in the BBL and in the trophy.”

Player-coach Gareth Murray had this to say:

“Christian comes in as big time scorer at Charleston southern before transferring his final year to UNC where he also made a big impact.

“He can score in multiple ways and will add some fire power to our offense.

“I am very happy we have managed to add a couple of American players to the roster. It gives us some depth and adds more competition in practice with the ability to multiple different lineups and styles.”

Christian is in the country currently completing his self-isolation and is expected to make his first start in the coming weeks.
