Despite falling seven points short of a win against Mandurah Magic over the weekend, dropping from fourth to sixth position on the ladder, Adams has no doubt Willetton has what it takes to become this year’s premiers.

Leaving his home in Seattle, Washington to play for the Tigers, the 25-year-old athlete told the Canning Times the SBL team was in good spirits.

‘In recent weeks we beat the two top teams, which really put our team in a confident position,’ Adams said.

‘The young guys in the team are so hungry to play and I know from experience, that when you get that chance to play, you fight for every rebound and give everything you have to that game of basketball.

‘Basketball has been my ticket to a better life and I love everything about the game.’

Brandon has played in the International Basketball League in Seattle, Division 1 basketball in Hawaii and attended the Athletes in Action Tour held in Puerto Rico.

The Willetton Tigers will match up against the Kalamunda Eastern Suns this Friday night, 8.30pm at the Willetton Basketball Stadium.
