OFFICIAL: Keith Wright extends in La Rochelle, Matthew Ruben – Bibskett arrives

As announced, Stade Rochelais Rupella has expanded its interior design Keith Wright (2.03 AD, 32 years old). Arrived during the season as a medical substitute for Ruphin Kayembe, the 4/5 quickly established himself as a key component of La Rochelle’s spin, averaging 11.3 points at 55.8% shooting success, 8.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 29 minutes. A contribution that allowed La Rochelle to finish the season on a high note and move to Pro B, twenty-six years later.

After trials in Sweden, Poland, Greece, Germany, Argentina or the G-League, the Suffolk native finds in the Maritimes little to no Stability, in a project depends on it. A reward to be proud of.

I have moved a lot in my career, I have played in 11 different countries. I also wanted to leave my bags and build something. And I am so lucky to have her here, in this wonderful city of La Rochelle! I am fond of the liveliness and liveliness of its supporters. There are not many players lucky enough to be able to continue the adventure after the climb. My goals for next season are the same as when I got here: I want to do everything to help the team win. I’m happy, but above all ready to take it to Pro B!

In La Rochelle, Keith Wright will discover a new coach at the start of the school year, Julian Corte. The latter brought, as he announced, Matthew Rubin (1.89 m, 30 years old) in his luggage. A playmaker for Breton club for two seasons, he was not spared from injuries, as he played 25 games in a row in 2020-2021 and then 15 in 2021-2022.

The stats are almost identical to the previous season.

Matthew knows my system and my method, it takes time to win, especially in the lead. He will have an important role for me in the team. I really like his human qualities, which is a factor. He has a big playing volume, he can score, he’s very good passing, he takes a lot of bouncing balls, he steals balls. He does a lot of things, he’s a team player. He does what the team needs.

Matthew Robin left Cholet Training Center in 2011, his hometown, and has spotted Pro B with Aix-Maurienne (2011 to 2013). However, he never had the chance, playing 7 matches in 2 seasons. Since then, he has come back to play in the National Championships until he became a strong captain at National 1 where he has been since 2017 (Brissac, Andrézieux, Boulogne-sur-Mer and thus Vitré). Ten years later, the doors of Pro B once again opened for him with Stade Rochelais, who had been promoted to Pro B with an ambitious project.
