Christian Cunningham

Born on September 24, 1995 from NCAA Division 1 Jacksonville State.
2018/19 season Cunningham completed a great career at Jacksonville State helping his team to an overall 24-9 record and semi-final finish in the very tough Ohio Valley Conference. He finished as the league leader in field goal percentage (62.4%). He also finished 4th overall in shot blocks in the conference (1.7). He averaged 8.2 points and 7.7 rebounds during his senior season. He had season highs in points with 17 vs. Eastern Kentucky, and in rebounds with 15 vs. Evansville.

As a Junior he led the Ohio Valley Conference in field goal percentage (66.1%) and shot blocks (57). He also recorded a team best 8 double doubles as a junior. As a sophomore he set the schools single season shot block record with 59. Also as a sophomore he scored 19 points vs. Northern Arizona and had 19 rebounds vs. Eastern Illinois. He also blocked 6 shots vs. Murray State his sophomore season. “We are very excited about Christian Cunningham. He comes from a great program at Jacksonville State with a great coach in Ray Harper. I got to see them play a few games this year and was really impressed with Christian. He had a very consistent career in college and I think that will only improve each year as a pro. He is a big time athlete who can defend and rebound, and can score the ball around the basket. I think his potential is unlimited. He also comes from a basketball family that is very supportive. His dad Paul played for the legendary Don Haskins at UTEP, and his brother Kasey played at USC.

In the 2019/20 season Christian played for Selfoss (Iceland) where he averaged 22ppg 17,3rpg 2,3 apg and 2,3 bpg.

Trenton Thompson

Born Sept.-11-1996
Last team played for: PeU Basket (Finland 1) and Salon Vilpas (Korisliiga) *Played for both College: NAIA Asbury College (2019) Notable Awards: Finnish 1 B Player of the Year, Finnish 1 B All Imports Team, Finnish 1st Div. Player of the Week 6 times, Finnish 1st Div. Scoring Leader (30.0), RSC Conf. Player of the Year, NAIA All American.

“Trenton Thompson had a great year in Finland last season. We could not of asked for a better situation in his first season as a pro. He practiced and played some games for Salon Vilpas and Coach Ville Tuominen as well as playing a full schedule for PeU-Basket. Obvioulsy being named player of the year in Finland 1 B was a great accomplishment but the experience he gained was the big thing. Trenton is a versatile player at 6-6 who can play the 2,3, or 4 and handles well enough to play the 1. He can score the ball from all 3 levels and has a great IQ for the game. More importanly he is a hard worker and a first class person.”
Michael Stinnett Free Agency Basketball Director of Scouting

Welcome Christian, Welcome Trenton to the yellow-purple family!

News about our women’s team

Having signed Thierry Kremer as our new head coach, we can now confirm the rest of our personal for the upcoming season.
Our roster will consist of the same local players as last season with the addition of quite some young talent from our youth program. The only non-professional player leaving the team is Rebecca Johanns, who already left for the States. Many, many thanks to her for spending last season with us and being a great teammate. All the best to you moving forward, we know you’ll be just fine.
The big news though concern our professional players. In Frankie Wurtz we have signed a young and highly talented point guard from Green Bay University.
And as our second professional we chose to bring back our beloved Alexandra Williams who was a major factor in winning our first Doublé in recent years. She will be taking over from Leah Alexandria Scott to whom we also want to send a huge thank you! Legend has it that some of your opponents are still looking for you in our gym since you hit them with those Eurosteps.
