Head coach Danny Byrne said: “Lyle is a flat out scorer, with a huge amount of offensive variety to his game. His ability to score from almost anywhere and in so many different ways, at his size, makes him extremely difficult for opposition defences to cover.”

“Despite his scoring ability making the headlines, Lyle is also a solid rim protector, and was third in the entire NAIA in blocked shots a couple of seasons ago. He has averaged around two blocks per game in each of his last three seasons.”

“His successful college career took him to All-American status and to the NBA Summer League. After a difficult season last time out, we are pleased to have secured the services of a potentially elite talent, and believe that this will be his breakout opportunity as a professional.”
