“I enjoyed my time with Prishtina, especially in the European competitions. I’m looking forward to the new challenge in Italy with Scafati”, reflected Andrew.

Scafati’s Patron Nello Longobardi commented on the signing: “Lawrence is a great talent, he also demonstrated it last night with the shirt by Sigal Prishtina against Demir Insaat. He was the leading player in his last match in the Fiba Europe Cup. ”
Scafati are currently 6-4 in third place in the A2 West league standings.
Lawrence averaged 8 points, 3.5 assists and 1.5 assists across GB’s FIBA World Cup 2019 Qualifying games against Greece and Estonia.
“We need to be converting those tight games into wins but the game in Leicester we showed some fight to comeback the way we did.
“A slight injury cut my playing time in the game in Estonia but again there were enough signs to suggest we can get results in the group. We just need to put the words into action now.”
