Halifax Hurricanes Sign 6’9” Forward Marvell Waithe from University of Arkansas

Halifax, N.S. - Power forward Marvell Waithe from Toronto, Ontario has signed with the Halifax Hurricanes.

He can score in a variety of ways; he makes other players better around him and has a high compete level," says Head Coach Mike Leslie. "I'm excited to have the opportunity to work with Marvell as he can have such an impact on the game at both ends of the floor. We look forward to maximizing his skills here within our team oriented structure."
