‘Big Mike’ re-joins Phoenix

Cheshire Phoenix last night announced the return of British center Michael Ochereobia ahead of the 2021-22 BBL season.

‘Big Mike’ joined the Phoenix at the start of the 2019-20 season where he averaged eight points and 8.4 rebounds rebounds per game.

Ochereobia then went on to join the BBL Trophy runners-up Plymouth Raiders for the 2020-21 season where he averaged seven points and 6.2 rebounds per contest.

“Having Mike back with us next season is huge for the club,” said Head Coach Ben Thomas. “He has really improved over the last two seasons and I know he’s ready for another big year.

“He’s one of the most effective players in the BBL and he plays hard every single time he steps on the floor, he’s exactly the type of player we want representing our club and creating that culture within the team.”

Ochereobia added, “I am happy to be back at Cheshire. I’m looking forward to creating some new and exciting memories with the loudest fans in the BBL.”
