Dielemans receives the full-time NBL1 call-up following a stellar three year stint with the VYC Cobras, one which saw him named to the All-VYC Team in 2018. Dielemans led the VYC in scoring in 2018 with 20.5 points per game, while finishing third in three-pointers made (2.6 3PM), fourth in assists (4.0apg), and shooting a league-best 86.5 percent from the free throw line to cap a dominant season.
The speedy point guard boasted near identical numbers the season prior, when he helped the VYC Men secure the 2017 state championship in a thrilling three game series. Just a month later Dielemans was at it again, leading the Under 20 Cobra Men to a state title thanks to his 37 point eruption in the championship game.

Dielemans scoring, playmaking and winning pedigree is set to give the NBL1 Cobras a boost off the bench for the season ahead, adding depth to an explosive backcourt headlined by 2018 All-SEABL members, Isaac Turner and Peter Hooley.
