Durham Wildcats have added American power forward Fred Hinnenkamp to their roster for the 2011-12 British Basketball League season.
Hinnenkamp, 23 this week, is a former team-mate of fellow newcomer Mario Flaherty at the Houston Bapist Huskies in US college basketball.
"Signing Fred signals the end of our overseas recruitment," said Wildcats boss Dave Elderkin.
"We have a rounded squad now, we have more experience than people think."
Elderkin added: "Fred will bring a lot to the team, he's played at a high level and has already shown some nice touches."
The Houston-born player will combine his playing duties with studies at Durham University, where the club has a scholarship programme.
