Malta international Sam Deguara bit through Kaohsiung Family Poseidon on Friday as the 7’5 centre put up 19 points off the bench on his debut with the TaiwanBeer HeroBears.
The side beat Kaohsiung Family Poseidon 99-92 and Deguara, known by his nickname ‘Dracula’ across the Asian leagues, had a strong introduction as he was second in his new team’s scoring by making 62.5% from the field over nearly 29 minutes on court.
Deguara also ended the game with a double-double as he managed 10 rebounds, adding a block and an assist to his tally as he opens his account on a positive note.
This win gives the HeroBears a vital boost after breaking a two-game losing streak and they will be hoping for more in their next game, on Sunday against the New Taipei CITIC Special Attack and the next day against the Taoyuan Clouded Leopard.
Deguara joined the club recently on Monday after ending his stint with fellow Taipei-based club the Taipei Fubon Braves after six months.
