PRESTON, England – Myerscough Basketball alums Bradley Kaboza and Shaydon Eytle have joined Selfoss Karfa in Iceland’s Division I for the 2020-21 season.
“Myerscough has been a key factor in my development over these years, helping me improve and gain confidence,” said Kaboza, who spent two seasons with the Preston-based Academy. “Myerscough is home and I’m very thankful of all my teammates and all the staff that’s helped me on my journey.”
Kaboza was a two-time European Youth Basketball League MVP Stage selection on the way to helping Myerscough claim the first season-long European title by any British team at any level. He was voted to the All EABL North First-Team after guiding Sco to an unbeaten regular season and a place in the EABL Finals, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
During his time with the Academy, Kaboza was part of four championship winning team, including the Under-18 National Championship in 2019.
“It means a because lot I think everyone’s goal is to play at that higher level away from the United Kingdom, whether it’s overseas or in America and I’m very much grateful for that opportunity as it something I’ve always wanted to do since I started basketball,” said Eytle.
Eytle was part of the Myerscough programme for one season, where he featured for the EYBL, Division 2 and EABL teams.
Founded in 2005, Selfoss Karfa last won the Icelandic-D1 regular season in 2008 and the playoff championship in 2015. Selfoss finished the 2019-20 in sixth place with an 8-13 record overall.
“Myerscough has helped me live a lifestyle that has built me to be mature and focused, that’s on and off the court,” said Kaboza. “Myerscough has helped me elevate my game through these competitions. I’m happy to be signing [with Selfoss] and I can’t wait to get started.”
