SEM Phoenix big man Dane Pineau has signed with Diamond Valley for NBL1 South Season 2022!
Regarded as one the of the best pick and roll players in the NBL, Dane will join an already formidable Eagles line-up.
A former St. Mary’s product, Dane earned a nomination for ‘most improved’ NBL player in season 2019-20, and enjoyed career-best numbers for the Phoenix, following a previous stint at the Sydney Kings.
“Dane’s addition is really exciting for our club. His elite ability to run the floor, stretch the floor and defend the high and low posts, adds to our arsenal. Dane’s length and tenacity on the glass complete what we have in the front court with Des, Luke, BJ and Ben. I had the pleasure of coaching Dane in his two Under 20 state teams and he is just a wonderful human off the floor and I know he will embrace and improve on our team culture.”
The added historical connection to Diamond Valley is Dane’s father Brad Pineau, who’s first club was Diamond Valley after arriving from the States as an import in the 90s, before going on to win championships with the Melbourne Tigers.
