Ashley Hamilton Signs in Italy with Matera

Ashley Hamilton is making a return to Italy this season after joining Olimpia Matera in Serie-A2.

The 27-year-old spent the majority of last season at Cherkasy in Ukraine before a brief spell in Lebanon was cut short by injury.

Hamilton has experience of playing in Italy having enjoyed a successful rookie season at Reggio Calabria (highlights here) – averaging 15.1 points per game after making the switch from Serie A’s VL Pesaro.

The aforementioned injury meant that Hamilton had to miss out on playing for the GB Senior Men this summer having been part of last year’s squad that competed in the EuroBasket qualifiers.

Hamilton was an all-round threat in Ukraine last season after finishing with averages of 14.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game before his side fell in the playoffs.

Hamilton showed off his new surroundings on Instagram this morning:
