#BAHAMIAN junior national basketball team standout Malik Joseph has signed his letter of intent to join the Newberry College Wolves this upcoming fall.

#The Wolves compete in the South Atlantic Conference in NCAA Division II.

#Last season, they were eliminated in the SAC Tournament quarter-finals and finished the year with a record of 14-15.

#Joseph posted major numbers in his senior season with the Southside Christian Sabres in South Carolina in the state’s 3A – private school class.

#The Eleuthera native averaged 22.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.5 steals per game thus far this season.

#At the national team level, Joseph was a member of the 2019 FIBA Centrobasket Under-17 Championship for Men.

#He credited the coaching staff and his experience at the tournament – consistently playing against the best in the region – for getting him prepared for his senior season.

#“Playing with the junior national team was a great experience. Playing for such a great coaching staff led by Mr [Quinton] Hall with Mr [Denycko] Bowles and Mr [Mark] Hanna, they all wanted us to succeed and to reach our full potential and carry that with us way after the tournament. They wanted us to win and we wanted to win.
