Ratiopharm Ulm (Germany, BBL, Eurocup) has announced the signing of American Center Brian Cusworth (213 cm, Harvard’07) from Maine Red Claws (USA, D-League). Brian Cusworth will join fellow American big man John Bryant (208 cm, Santa Clara’09), who has been with Ulm since 2010. Bryant will likely remain the starting center with the BBL outfit.
Brian Cusworth has managed just 3 games for the Red Claws this season, ironically under the stewardship of former Ulm coach Mike Taylor. In the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 seasons Cusworth played with Manresa (Spain, ACB). In his first season with the team he averaged 9.7ppg and 3.8rpg over 28 games, while his second season was cut short due to injury.
