Member spotlight - Isaac Nyembo

A big shout out to Isaac Nyembo whom tried out for the melbourne Tigers basketball team last week and made it into their development squad as a point guard. The hardest position to play from what ive lead to believe.

The trials had him playing several games and he ended up beating 80 other tough applicants to be the last two selected.

He has tried unsuccessfully in the past prior to training at ptc make it into other junior development teams over the last 2 years. Mostly relying on his court skills alone.

I remember his figures when he started lifting 4 months ago. Some of the girls lifted more
Well TBH he couldnt go past quarter squats. He was tight everywhere in terms of mobility.

Nevertheless persistence to over coming these hurdles and sticking to what he thought was a "boring" strength program has yielded explosive on court results along with a 2 handed rim dunk. Where as before he could only use one.

He still has one more trial with the sydney kings this friday.

Heres to wishing him the best and many more doors opening up
