The Halifax Hurricanes are excited to announce the recent signing of Anthony Stover to their roster for 2018-19.
Stover, a native of Pasadena, California, who played his college career at UCLA, played two seasons with the Saint John Riptide and began his third season with them before eventually ending the season with the St. John's Edge, averaging 4.80 points, 6.90 rebounds and 2 blocks per game.
"Anthony has been a great defensive rim protector and a very strong rebounder in the league for three years," says Head Coach Mike Leslie. "We will look forward to Anthony channeling his ability to become a game changer and defensive presence as well as enabling us to run the floor in transition with his strong defensive rebounding."
Stover, 6-foot-11, 230 pounds, suited up for 25 games with the South Bay Lakers of the NBA's G-League during the 2012-2013 season and in 2015, Stover played for the Rochester Razorsharks in the Premier Basketball League, helping the team to a 17–0 record and league title. In 2015-16, his first year in the National Basketball League of Canada, he led the league in blocked shots with 152 and was named Defensive Player of the Year for the league.
"I am very excited for the opportunity to play for a great organization that has winning traditions. Coach Leslie is a great coach and I'm looking forward to working with him and his staff," says Stover about his recent signing to the Hurricanes. "Halifax is a beautiful city with great fans and I look forward to playing hard for them night in and night out."
