Moycullen Basketball Club has completed the signing of Mason Ambler ahead of its second Nivea For Men’s SuperLeague campaign.
A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Ambler will replace Nathaniel Fritsch who has signed a contract to play the upcoming season in Portugal after a productive year for the Galway club.
Ambler joins Moycullen with serious pedigree, having been named on the first team throughout the Carolina Conference in which he averaged 17.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game for Coker College.
“Mason has a great knowledge of the game and brings a lot of attributes to the court but also give us some bulk inside, which is one area we really needed help with” says Moycullen head coach Enda Byrt.
Moycullen, often mismatched for size last season, hope Ambler, who stands at six foot six inches, will help neutralise that problem.
However, the Coker College Cobras’ former captain and star player is expected to bring much more than size to Moycullen.
“Mason showed great leadership skills during his time in Coker,” added Byrt. “He worked for three years before entering college so has a maturity beyond most graduates. He should be a fantastic court leader for our team that really progressed last year and learned from all the ups and downs we had.”
