Tim Lang will pull the Kilsyth jersey once again, after coming off a stellar 2011 SEABL season where he earned himself SEABL East All-Conference Team honours. The 2011 season saw the centre average 14.5 points a game, to go with 8.7 rebounds, while shooting at 44.6% in his 23 games. Lang also signed with Melbourne Tigers last Friday and will add an adge to his game gaining more experience playing in the NBL.

The Swinburne Cobras have also regained the playing duties of Lang’s partner in the post, Auryn “Oz” Macmillan, who continues his loyalty to his junior club. Auryn played a key role down low for Kilsyth in 2011 averaging 12.8 points (shooting at 49.3%) and 7.8 rebounds to accompany the points.

Coach Grant Wallace couldn’t be happier in the resigning of the “Twin Towers” for the Kilsyth frontcourt, stating: “Auryn and Tim resigning for 2012 gives us arguably the best Australian big combination in the competition.”

“We are the envy of all others and very lucky as a Club to have two local Kilsyth players in that spot.”

Kilsyth have also added guard Matt O’Hea to the list of stars re-signing with the Club, making him the fourth player to return from last year’s starting five. O’Hea, known around the Club as a quiet achiever, was crucial in big games for the Swinburne Cobras; he averaged 13.2 points a game with the inclusion of a couple of 30+ scoring games.

Wallace could not praise O’Hea’s efforts around the Club enough saying, “Matt O’Hea is the most professional player going around.  He reads and understands the game so well and is just the greatest quality person to have on your team.”

And if there was any doubt on what Matt O’Hea means to the Kilsyth team in the 2012 SEABL season.

“In 2012 we will be calling on his experience, knowledge and leadership to Captain the Club.” Wallace concluded.

Tim, Auryn and Matt will join Zach Malvik, and new import Garfield Blair to all but lock in the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras starting line-up for the 2012 season. The team looks at making the fourth time a charm in 2012, after being eliminated from play-offs in the Conference Preliminary Final the last three years in a row.
