WORCESTER Wolves hope for plenty of points from new American point guard Darell Combs.

Combs, 24, attended Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis where he played for the NCAA Division One team IUPUI Jaguars.

He was in the starting five in his senior year and averaged 16.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game, earning an All-Summit League honourable mention.

Combs began his rookie year last season at Italian Serie A2 team Roseto Sharks, averaging 13.3 points and 3.1 rebounds per game but moved to Stjarnan in the Iceland Dominos league at the end of the campaign.

Combs said: “I am blessed and thankful for the opportunity that Worcester have offered me.

"I am excited for the season ahead and ready to get to work with my team-mates and coaches.”

Wolves managing director Mick Donovan said: “It was always our intention to find a point guard who can lead the team on the court while also offering a significant scoring option.

“We are really excited about Darell joining Wolves and given his playing history and style feel sure he will be a huge favourite with our fans and make a great contribution to the club.”

Meanwhile, Manchester-born guard Jordan Whelan is the second Brit to join Wolves this summer.

He started out at Manchester Magic where he was offered a move to Frank Phillips Colleges, USA, to play in National Junior College Athletic Association Division One.

In the 2013-14 season Whelan moved to MidAmerica Nazarene University where he completed his college career averaging 13 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.

Out of college he spent two years in the Germany Regionalliga at BBG Herford and then at Hertener Loewen where he averaged 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists last season.

Whelan, 24, finished last term at Manchester Giants and dropped 29 points on Surrey Scorchers.

He said: “I am looking forward to becoming a part of the Wolfpack.

“I am excited for the season ahead and I cannot wait to give everything on and off the floor for the fans and to the University of Worcester.”

Donovan said: “We were really impressed by Jordan’s brief spell in the BBL last year and he is also arriving at Worcester with meaningful experience from his two years of playing in Europe.

“We are sure he will make a great contribution and prove to be a serious scoring threat for Wolves.”
