Kilsyth point guard Daniel Dillon sustained a season-ending achilles injury during the Cobras loss to NW Tasmania on Saturday night.
Dillon suffered the injury midway through the final quarter of Saturday’s game, with the guard expected to miss the remainder of the SEABL season and the 2017/18 NBL season.
“I’m devastated for Dan; he has been great for us and a real pro, and he was primed for a great NBL season,” Cobras Head Coach Justin Schueller said.
“We are behind him 100 percent and look forward to getting him back with us next year.”
Dillon quickly became a fan-favourite at Kilsyth, with his slashing drives to the basket and elite court vision sparking the Cobras to three wins in his first three games. In four total games with the Cobras, Dillon boasted averages of 21.0ppg, 6.3rpg and 5.5apg, while shooting the ball at an impressive 53.2% clip from the field.
We would like to thank Daniel for his terrific service to Kilsyth Basketball this season and wish him a speedy recovery.
