BALLARAT Miners' new American power forward Ken Horton arrived at the Minerdome this afternoon.
Horton will spend the afternoon settling into town and meeting teammates, one month out from the Miners' South East Australian Basketball League season opener against Mt Gambier.
The Miners confirmed via social media Horton's visa clearance was approved last week.
Standing at 201 centimetres tall, Horton was the second internationally-experienced player from the United States signed to the Miners roster.

He finished his college career in 2012, when he averaged 19 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block a game.
He was also NCAA North East Conference player of the year.
Booker’s professional experience spans the US, France, Israel, Austria and Syria.
