Rhamel Brown returns for his sophomore season with the Canes

The Halifax Hurricanes are excited to announce the return of breakout star from last season, Rhamel Brown.

The 6'7" center from Brooklyn, NY rejoins the Hurricanes squad for his sophomore season in the NBL Canada.

"Rhamel had a tremendous season with us last year. He is an excellent defender and rebounder who helps anchor a defense," says Head Coach Mike Leslie. "He also worked very hard at further developing his offensive game and was very effective in the low post. On top of that, he is a quality person who will bring great leadership to our younger players."

Brown, a member of the 2017-18 NBLC All Defensive Team, led the league in blocks last season with 100, and was third in rebounding, dominating the boards with 440 rebounds in total throughout the season.

A fan favourite in Halifax, Rhamel made a lasting impression both on and off the court in Halifax. The team and fans are looking forward to having the big man back on the court in a Hurricanes uniform this season.

Catch Rhamel back in action with the Hurricanes this Thursday, November 22 at 7pm at Scotiabank Centre. Tickets are available online at TicketAtlantic.com or in person at the Ticket Atlantic Box Office.
