Norwood is excited to announce another player signing for the 2021 NBL1 season, Ray Harding!
Ray, a 6’6 combo wing, is a long and athletic player who has a tough nose for defence.
Ray previously played at North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City, Iowa. He also played at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, Nebraska. Both were Junior Colleges. Since returning he was playing for North Adelaide.
Harding was eager to join the team:
“I’m really excited to start a new chapter at Norwood. I can’t wait to get on court in the pre-season and get to work”.
GM Will Smith was quoted,
“Ray is a perfect culture guy for us. He wants to work hard and be a tough opposition for others in the league. His defensive ability and selflessness will make him a valuable asset to us both on and off the court.”
Harding also won gold at the Under 20 Nationals for South Australia and brings heart, energy and intensity to any team he plays on.
His experience and character will also be taught to club juniors. Ray will also coach junior teams in the club, as well as camps and other basketball activities with the club.
But it’s not only basketball that Ray brings to the club, his fashion sense and hair styles will surely also be a talking point for anyone seeing him around The Arc!
