Three-point specialist Felix von Hofe has re-signed with the Kilsyth Cobras for the inaugural NBL1 season.
Von Hofe enjoyed a standout 2018 season with the Cobras in the SEABL, ranking second on the team with 14.0 points per game thanks to some blistering shooting from beyond the arc. The University of Eastern Washington graduate’s 62 made three-pointers ranked third in the SEABL for 2018, trailing only teammate Isaac Turner and MVP Tom Wilson for the league lead.
While von Hofe drained them from deep in bunches, it was his efficiency and consistency that established the forward as arguably the league’s best perimeter shooter. von Hofe connected on 43.4 percent of his three point makes and buried three or more triples in 13 games in 2018, including a seasons-best 8-for-11 performance from downtown against Albury-Wodonga on July 1.
Cobras head coach Justin Schueller is pleased to have his three-point gunner back for a second season, and believes that von Hofe will continue to build on his 2018 campaign in the upcoming NBL1 season.
“Felix is one of, if not the best spot up shooter in the league,” Schueller said.
“With the group we have around him, we expect him to continue his excellent contribution from last season.”
With the likes of All-SEABL guards Isaac Turner and Peter Hooley drawing significant defensive attention on the perimeter, coupled with the dangerous low post combo of Chris Patton and Tohi Smith-Milner, von Hofe figures to receive his fair share of looks from downtown in 2019 and play a key role in one of the league’s most electrifying offences once again.
