Tew played his junior basketball in France before attending Junior College and College in the United States, The longest stint being at Niagara University in NCAA Division One.

Lions head coach Vince Macaulay said: "We needed an athlete under the basket who could protect the rim and be aggressive on the offensive end.

"Alioune has the tools to do that as well as the ability to run the floor."

The Lions are in BBL Cup action tomorrow, Friday, when they host the Worcester Wolves at the University of East London with a 5pm tip, doors open 4.30pm.
