James in Caylin swoop for Wolves

CAYLIN Raftopoulos has become the latest player to join the new-look Worcester Wolves team for next season.
The 20-year-old guard arrives from British Basketball League rivals Surrey Heat and will also be studying sports coaching at the University of Worcester.
Raftopoulos, the son of ex-Heat coach Creon, stands five feet eight inches tall and averaged five points per game last season.
Director of basketball Paul James said: “Caylin did well when he got his chances last year. He scored in double figures several times, including against us back in February. He can also dish out assists and be a threat from three-point range.”
“However, like everyone at the Wolves, he knows he will have to earn his playing time. I know he will be knuckling down in his studies at the university and there will also now be the chance for him to grind it out on court.”
Harry Turner, another guard, has also be retained by Wolves, allowing the 21-year-old to continue his business management degree at the university.
James added: “Harry showed enough promise for me to want to make him a part of my squad.”
