The Canterbury Rams would like to announce the signing of Jaye Crockett, for the 2020 Sal’s NBL Season. This announcement comes as Rams head coach Mick Downer’s second player signing. Jaye has just finished up playing for the S.E. Melbourne Phoenix in the ANBL.
Since graduating college (Texas Tech) in 2014, Crockett has continued his professional career in many places around the globe including Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Denmark, France and Lebanon. A highlight being his 2017-2018 season with the Bakken Bears in Denmark where he helped the team win the Danish Cup and the Danish League. He subsequently earned Basketligaen Finals MVP honours.
This year in October Crockett signed with the South East Melbourne Phoenix in the ANBL as a temporary injury replacement for Tai Wesley. Jaye averaged 9 points and 5 rebounds a game in 9 games for the Phoenix and he was a popular player over in Melbourne with the fans and his teammates as Tai Wesley commented saying in a recent interview “Off the court he’s a great guy, on the court he’s been what we needed. Great player and a great dude. Came into the group and just fit in straight away.”
We are looking forward to having the athletic and explosive forward hit the court for the Rams next year as Rams Head Coach Mick Downer commented on Jaye saying “We are really excited to have someone with the character, talent and experience of Jay joining our group for the upcoming season. Jaye has played at the highest levels in Europe and one thing that has always stood out is his ability to adapt to different situations and this is a testament to him as a person and his playing ability. He can score the ball, defend and rebound and this will help us this season to keep getting better.”
