Milton Keynes Lions coach Vince Macaulay insists the arrival of point guard EJ Harrison can transform his side into BBL Cup contenders when the competition gets under way on Friday at Bletchey.
The American point guard, who landed late in the UK due to visa issues, had an immediate impact in last weekend’s win over Worthing. However Macaulay believes Harrison will be more effective against old side Guildford after a week of practice with his new team-mates.
“I was really just pleased to have our full team on the floor for the first time this season last weekend,” he said. “Playing without a point guard is not what you want to be doing in the BBL as it is so competitive. EJ slotted in well and I see us able to make improvements game on game now.”
