WORCESTER Wolves have signed US guard Chey Christie as coach Chuck Evans starts to build his team for the 2009-10 British Basketball League season.

Christie began his college career with Clemson University in South Carolina in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division One and played an average of 28 games per season.

The 26-year-old transferred from Clemson and graduated in 2006 from the University of South Alabama.

He played 31 games for the Jaguars leading them to the Sun Belt Conference championship title, where he was named the most valuable player.

Christie is an athletic, talented swingman and a natural shooter.

He was selected to represent the USA in the 2001 Global Games where he averaged over 15 points per game in five matches while shooting 11 for 18 from behind the arc.

He is a hard-working, determined player who comes from a military family.

In 2007-08 Christie played five games with Örebro BK in Sweden, three of which were in the regular season and two at the Final Four play-offs.

In the regular season he averaged 21.3 points per game, 4.7 rebounds per game and two steals per game.

At the Final Four he was voted the most valuable player of the semi-finals and averaged 19.5 ppg, eight rpg and two spg.

Coach Evans was delighted to sign Christie: “Chey is like a quiet assassin — very efficient offensively and able to score in a variety of ways from different positions.”
