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.
