Luke, who expressed himself in very correct Spanish during his appearance before the press, made it clear that his wish is to grow as a player. “I want to be the best player I can. Now I have the chance to play in the ACB (Association of Basketball Clubs) against the best players in Spain and I’m looking forward to doing it well”, said the North American, who comes to Canarias BC after two years knocking on the doors of the elite during his time with UB La Palma and Burgos de la Adecco Oro.
