Star wing Corey Jeffs has re-signed with the Cobras for the 2023 NBL1 season.
Jeffs enjoyed a breakout 2022 campaign with the Cobras, leading the team in scoring (16.0ppg), three pointers (2.7 3PM), and ranking second in rebounds (6.4rpg) and assists (2.6apg) as he established himself as one of the NBL1’s top-flight players. The former Mount Evelyn Meteors junior eclipsed the 20 point mark on six separate occasions – including a season-high 29 points in a home win over Geelong – and recorded a team-best four double-doubles in 2022, with his consistency, leadership and versatility on both ends of the floor seeing Jeffs earn team MVP honours.
Jeffs’s ability to score off the bounce, from the perimeter, in the post, and with the occasional ‘poster’ finish has made him one of the league’s toughest covers on the offensive end, and firmly placed him in the conversation with the NBL1’s top local players. Standing 6’7 tall and able to play multiple positions at a high level, Jeffs proved that he is an NBL level talent and worthy of national league consideration. Many of Jeffs’ standout performances in 2022 came against NBL talent, further cementing the fact that he is more than capable of producing at the next level.
Cobras head coach, Pete Godfrey is thrilled to see Jeffs return for the new season, recognising the substantial impact his swingman made to the Cobras this past season.
“I couldn’t be happier that Corey has signed on again for NBL1 2023,” Godfrey said.
“Corey won the peer vote for team MVP this past season; appropriate recognition for his on court performance throughout 2022. He’s is one of the hardest working guys on the team, still honing his craft and working on getting better every week. Despite missing five regular season games through injury, he still managed to earn a nomination for league All-Star Five selection which is testament to Corey’s impact on the floor.”
