LETITIA BUSNIAK Chalk it up: 2012 MVP Daniel Thomas, a Geraldton teacher, has signed on for another season.

The Geraldton Buccaneers have welcomed back last year’s MVP Daniel Thomas to their SBL lineup, after the star guard this week inked a new deal for the 2013 season.

The John Willcock College sports teacher said he was excited about the upcoming season and teaming up with big-name signings Shamus Ballantyne and Mark Heron formerly of the Kalgoorlie Giants.

“I played against the both of them while they were in Kalgoorlie so it’s going to be really good to play with them, instead of against them.

“For anyone who knows Shamus, he’s probably one of the best point guards in the past 15 years in the SBL."
