Coach David Hussey said Zampa was "very apologetic" and the Stars had "made a New Year's resolution that no one's ever going to swear on the field ever again".

Sam Rainbird is also back in the BBL for his first game in over 2 years, while the Hurricanes have welcomed former Star Sandeep Lamichhane.
