Star point guard Adi Tomada has re-signed with the Cobras for the 2023 NBL1 season.
Tomada enjoyed a stellar debut NBL1 campaign in 2022, leading the team in assists (4.6apg) and ranking third in scoring (15.3ppg), rebounds (5.8rpg) and steals (1.3spg). The former Maroondah Magic junior recorded a season-high 31 points in a win over the Nunawading Spectres in Round 6, while his 26-point, 13-rebound, nine-assist masterpiece against the Waverley Falcons in Round 12 earned him league Player of the Week honours.
Tomada had a knack for elevating his game in key moments, making an abundance of clutch plays over the course of the season – highlighted by his 22 point semi final performance at home as he helped lead Kilsyth to a 19 point comeback win over the Bendigo Braves. The Cobras floor general has long possessed an uncanny ability to come up big when it matters most, and it’s translated to plenty of winning over his young career. Tomada won U20’s and VYC championships (including the 2015 league and finals MVP) alongside current NBL1 head coach, Pete Godfrey, and won a Big-V state championship with the McKinnon Cougars at the conclusion of his VYC career with the Cobras.
Although Tomada and Godfrey have enjoyed tremendous success together, the duo have a burning desire to hang a championship banner in 2023, having come agonisingly close last season.
“Season 2023 will mark a decade since Adi and I first entered our head coach/point guard relationship,” Godfrey said.
“Adi and I talk often about having unfinished business; to win a senior title together. I know Adi is all in on that goal every time he steps onto the court.”
