Worcester Wolves are delighted to confirm that Jermel Kennedy, who impressed in his debut season with the team, will be returning for a second season.
The 6ft 7in forward featured in 41 games for the Wolves last year in the wake of his switch from Spanish team CB Clavijo Logrono, averaging 12.7 points and 7.4 boards per game. With some tough competition from his own teammates, when the Wolves went on a 16-game winning streak, he also won the Molten BBL player of the month for March.
Paul James, Wolves Head Coach, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to secure Jermel for another season.
“He was a player that last season, I thought had the qualities to have an impact in the league and help us be a very good team on his way to averaging 12 points and 7 rebounds a game. These are numbers that I fully expect him to improve upon this time around.
“Jermel contributes in many different ways, giving us some great options with his all round game, which I believe is perfect for the BBL.
“He had an outstanding March, which lead to him being awarded Player of the Month, so more of the same would be great. I’m expecting him to have a dominant season having had the experience of the last campaign,” added the play-caller.
