BJ-LEAGUE

Broncos sign veteran center Leach

The Japan Times

Looking to add depth and veteran experience to their undersized frontcourt, the Saitama Broncos announced the signing of veteran center George Leach over the weekend.

The Broncos (2-6) have the worst record in the bj-league's seven-team Eastern Conference.

Leach, who played for the Ryukyu Golden Kings last season, played college ball at Indiana University, the same school that bj-league standouts Jeff Newton (Golden Kings) and Lynn Washington (Osaka Evessa) attended.

Leach was the league's 10th-leading rebounder last season (10.35 per game). He averaged 14.3 points in 52 games.

The 210-cm Leach has also previously played for the Takamatsu Five Arrows.
