CHARLOTTETOWN – The Island Storm has announced Saturday the signing of 6-foot-8 center Meshack Lufile from Burlington, ON.
The two-time AUS all-star at Cape Breton University comes to the Island after a stint playing for Aris Leeuwarden in the Dutch Professional Basketball League.
During his tenure at CBU, Lufile reached many milestones, which included the 2015-16 AUS Defensive Player of the Year title. That same season he recorded at 67.7 field goal percentage, good enough for best in the nation. He averaged 16.2 points per game and 9.0 rebounds.
To make room for Lufile, the Storm has released forward Wayne McCullough.
Lufile will make his home debut for the Storm on New Year’s Eve at 2pm against the Halifax Hurricanes.
