Former Long Beach State star and NBA player Casper Ware has re-signed with Melbourne United in Australia’s National Basketball League.

 

The 5-10 guard led Team Challenge ALS to The ($2 million) Basketball Tournament championship game in August, pouring in 28 points in the team’s 88-83 win over Scarlet & Gray in the TBT semifinals.

 

Ware played with Melbourne last season, when he was the NBL league’s second leading scorer at 22.1 ppg.

 

He also played in the France Pro A last year, where he averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 assists, and 2.3 rebounds for ASVEL, leading the team to the championship.

 

Ware was also named the LNB Finals MVP.

 

Prior to playing in France, Ware was in the China’s CBA league where he averaged 20.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1.3 steals for TianJin Steel.

 

He also scored 31 points, including pouring in 27 in the third quarter, to lead BB4L to the Los Angeles Drew League title last summer.

 

A college star at Long Beach State, Ware led the team in scoring and assists as a senior, averaging 17.4 points and 3.4 assists to guide the school to a 25-9 record and the NCAA Tournament.

 

Undrafted, Ware played part of one season in the NBA with the Sixers.
