“North-West Tasmanian guard Tre Armstrong has shown in the past he can light up the scoreboard”
North-West Tasmanian guard Tre Armstrong has shown in the past he can light up the scoreboard and he did so in his club’s big win over Southern Sabres with 32 points including eight threes. The Thunder love to push the pace and back themselves to run up the score and Armstrong’s display personified that style. He’s definitely a player to watch this season.
Diamond Valley’s Joel Spear opened his time with the Eagles in fine form with 30 points. The South Australian native played overseas during summer so has entered NBL1 in peak condition. While the Eagles will be hurting after their loss to rivals Eltham, Spear’s display shows this group has something to build on.
Frankston centre Majok Majok went straight to work in his NBL1 debut with 23 points and 15 rebounds in the loss to Waverley. Majok had a somewhat frustrating season with New Zealand Breakers as he battled for minutes off the bench but he left no doubt he is still one of Australia’s most dangerous rebounders with his work in the paint.
