Durham Wildcats have signed swingman Mike Capocci to their roster in preparation for the 2011-12 British Basketball League season.

The 23-year-old arrives at the club on the recommendation of new Princeton coach Mitch Henderson, who worked with Capocci at Northwestern University.

"Mitch is convinced he'll be a great addition to Durham," head coach Dave Elderkin said.

"That's about as glowing an endorsement as you're going to get."

Elderkin added: "We're delighted to bring Mike on board."

Capocci will combine his playing duties with a Masters degree at Durham University.

Durham are newcomers to the BBL, having been accepted to the league this summer.
