Ballarat Miners have retained young homegrown talent Tristan Fisher on its roster for the NBL1 season.
A product of the Wildcats and Celtic Tigers basketball clubs, Fisher said he had been working hard in the gym building strength and in rehabilitation to get his body right for the year.
He said he was hopeful of being part of another finals campaign with the Hotondo Homes Miners.
Described as a knockdown shooter, he averaged 42 per cent from the three-point line last season.
Miners head coach Brendan Joyce said it was great to see the pathway for junior players succeeding in developing young talent in Ballarat.
He said he was excited to see the improvements Fisher had made over the summer.
“During the pre-season he has displayed that he can consistently knock down the open shot,” Joyce said.
“We are looking for Tristan to improve his game on the defensive end and provide a spark for us when he hits the floor in any game situation."
The NBL1 season starts on Saturday, March 30.
