The towering 6'10 Matt Andronicos has re-signed for his fourth season with the Bendigo Braves.
Described as "a pillar of the Braves' consistency" during recent seasons, the 2016 SEABL Championship player is keen to chase down another grand final title with Bendigo.
"I first came to Bendigo as a basketballer, I now represent my city by pulling on the Bendigo Braves uniform and that comes with a great sense of pride and responsibility," Andronicos said.
"I'm excited to get that chance again and can't wait to play with this season's group."
Coach David Hogan said Andronicos was a crucial player to help "replicate the success of 2016".
"He works hard on the floor, he works hard in the gym and he plays with passion for the front of the singlet," Hogan said.
Throughout Andronicos' SEABL career he has averaged 8.2 points per game at a 57.3 per cent shooting average and 5.3 rebounds per game.
In addition to Andronicos, the Braves have also announced the return of Ray Turner and Jake Lloyd for the 2019 season.
