Carl English has unfinished business in his homeland.
The 37-year-old former Hawaii basketball standout, and reigning National Basketball League MVP, indicated through the Twitter page of his professional team, the St. John’s Edge, that he is game for at least one more season in Canada before calling it a career.
“Carl English is back,” said the post, which English retweeted.

Said English in a team release, “It was amazing to play at home last season in front of the best fan base in the league. The Edge are poised to do even greater things this season and I can’t see myself anywhere else but on the court.”
English, in the inaugural season of the franchise, scored a National Basketball League-record 58 points in March.
He rode that performance to the league MVP award after a number of years playing in Europe. In 39 games, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 23.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists.
English is the oldest ex-Bow still playing professionally. He was the WAC tournament MVP in 2001, an All-WAC second-teamer in 2002 and first-teamer in 2003. He declared for the NBA Draft and signed an agent prior to his senior season at UH.
