Big V: Waverley Falcons lock up roster

WAVERLEY Falcons have finalised their roster for the coming Big V basketball league state championship men's competition.

The Falcons have signed 2012 all-star centre Karl Beston, who crosses to the club from rivals Eltham Wildcats.

Falcons general manager Mike Bullock said Beston, who averaged 11 points and five rebounds a game last season, would add size and quality to the Falcons, who will be coached by Andrew Sherwell this season.

"This completes our search for a quality player and person who plays the game hard at both ends of the court," Bullock said.

"We are looking forward to the season and I think it is going to be tougher than ever with Corio Bay and Ringwood having star players and other teams all recruiting good imports."

The Falcons men's roster is: Simon Blennerhassett (captain), Sedale Threatt jnr, Ivan Platenik, Karl Beston, Tom Boyle, Brad Kelleher, Chris Arkell, Samir Omerbasic, Sean Stewart, Matt Bongetti and Marc Goodwin.

The Falcons' first match is against last season's losing grand finalist Corio Bay on March 17.
