Fisher Dominates NBL Performance Tests

GMHBA Ballarat Miner Anthony Fisher has wasted no time establishing himself in the National Basketball League’s Perth Wildcats, setting the best records for three performance tests, as well and a second place and a third place.

Eight of last year’s championship players were present including Grand Final MVP Jermaine Beal, providing some tough competition for Fisher.

With eight tests undertaken by the entire squad, Fisher was the best performer in three tests, and in the top three performers for five.

Fisher set the standard in the 20 metre sprint, agility test, and the dreaded ‘suicide’ test, while posting the second-highest vertical jump, and third-best score in the yo-yo test.

Fisher has worked consistently with Ballarat Basketball Strength & Conditioning Coach Scott Talpey while playing for the Miners, and throughout 2014 undertook a training program prescribed by the Perth Wildcats.

Fisher will miss the Miners’ last regular season game but will return next week as the Finals series begins in the South East Australian Basketball League.
