Sharks look to blossom with Flowers signing


The B. Braun Sheffield Sharks have announced the signing of Tyrn Flowers. The 25-year-old, out of Waterbury, Connecticut joins the club after spending last season with the Ontario Clippers in the G-League.

After appearing and starting in 29 games at LIU, Tyrn took home First team All-NEC honours. His senior year he led the team in scoring, rebounds, three-point percentage, and free throw percentage.

Coach Lyons is excited to welcome Flowers to Sheffield.

“Very happy and excited about signing Tyrn. He will add some size to the roster, but he also has the ability to shoot the ball which will help spread the floor and add to our scoring capabilities.”

Flowers has been brought in alongside Devearl Ramsey to replace Channel Banks and Javion Ogunyemi who were released from contracts in December.
