Indigenous national player signs with Miners


Indigenous talent William Hickey has signed with the Ballarat Miners for the NBL1 South season.

It will be the first stint in blue and gold for Hickey, who is also a member of the indigenous national team.

A versatile guard, Hickey brings a wealth of experience to the Miners roster, having spent time with the South East Phoenix as a development player.

He hopes to use the upcoming season to springboard himself back to the professional ranks.

“I’m heaps excited to be here. I can’t wait to get back onto a court to play competitive and play high level basketball. I Haven’t been this eager to play in a long time,”  he said.
