Kristina
King
Sporting Club Chabibeh (WLBL) signed 24-year old American international guard Kristina King (180-92, college: Richmond). She already started the season at Platges Mataro in Spanish Liga Catalana. In four games she had very impressive stats: 26.0ppg, 9.5rpg and 5.0apg this season. The last season King played at Sportive Pully in Switzerland LNA. Quite impressive season as she was voted EuroBasket.com All-Swiss LNA 2nd Team and All-Import honors. She averaged an impressive 5- (20.8 points), 8.0 rebounds, 4- (4.4 assists) and 3- (3.2 steals) per game.

King has been regularly called to USA Senior National Team since 2015. Last summer in the William Jones Cup (Taiwan) she was named MVP. King was the leader in scoring (19.8) and rebounds (9.8) as she led the USA Selection squad to a Bronze medal.

"This was a must sign for us", said president Fadi Tabet . Kristina King is like Lebron James for Lebanon. She has the ability to play every position on the floor. We are a very young team without much experience. We will need her to be special this season if we want to reach the final four.

She has played also professionally in Romania (Cluj Napoca), Switzerland (Pully) Iceland (Grindavik) and Spain.

"Kristina will have her hands full this season", said head coach Barnes. Lebanon has signed 5 WNBA starters this season. Last season Angel McCoughtry (187-SF-86, college: Louisville) was here. This is her opportunity to show everyone she is special.

King is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league on the market. The Summer of 2016 King was named Eurobasket Summer League MVP. This award sparked the interest of the Atlanta Dream of the WNBA. She attended mini camp before signing in Swiss LNA.
