Newcastle Eagles’ young star Sauveur Kande will play the remainder of the 2022-23 season with Newcastle University’s National Basketball League (NBL) Division One team.

The Eagles partner with Newcastle University’s NBL1 programme, allowing British Under-23 players the ability to play for both teams.

Kande will continue his basketball development for the remainder of this season with Newcastle University Head of Basketball Mark Elderkin, himself a former assistant coach with the Eagles and ex-BBL player.

Head Coach Marc Steutel and his coaching staff are committed to continuing their work to develop young basketball talent with the best emerging players in the Eagles pathway.
