As for Ross, he is just as significant a signing for the Wolves ahead of the 2019 season and is fresh off a starring performance for Guam where he has helped them advance to the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.

Ross, alongside New Zealand Breakers NBL star Tai Wesley and 2018 Rockingham Flames big man Curtis Washington, helped Guam go through undefeated at the FIBA Asia Cup Pre-Qualifiers to advance to the qualifying round for the 2021 tournament.

That included Ross putting up 33 points, four rebounds and three assists on 6/12 shooting from downtown in Saturday’s 101-78 win over Malaysia.

The 27-year-old swingman went on to average 22.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.7 assists throughout the Pre-Qualifying tournament for Guam on top of shooting an impressive 46.7 per cent from the field and 46.6 per cent from three-point territory.

Since spending the 2014/15 NBL season with the Perth Wildcats, Ross has spent time playing in the SEABL for the Ballarat Miners, New Zealand for the Super City Rangers and then last season in the SBL with the Geraldton Buccaneers.

He’s also spent time further abroad playing in Denmark and Qatar but it’s playing in Australia that he’s always enjoyed where he qualifies to play as an unrestricted player due to Guam’s Oceania connection.

Coming off his strong showing in the SBL with the Buccs last season and now more recently on the international stage with Guam, Ross is an exciting signing for the Wolves and is happy to be back in Australia as noted when he was with Geraldton in 2018.

“I really didn’t think I’d be back here to be honest. At the time when that happened with the Wildcats, a lot of stuff goes through your mind so for that to occur and for me to actually be back in the same state in Australia, I’m just happy with how it worked out,” Ross said.

“I’ve got daughter from Australia and my wife is from Australia so I knew I would be back in Australia, but playing here is a whole different path. I’m just happy to be back here, especially in the Western Australia area, and it feels good. It definitely feels great to be back out here and enjoy this weather.”
