Rio Olympian Damien Martin has been named in the Boomers squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers in Melbourne.
The Perth Wildcats captain and former Newcastle Hunters junior representative was part of the 24-man group announced on Tuesday.
Australia’s men’s basketball team are scheduled to play the Phillippines on February 22 and Chinese Taipei three days later.
Back-to-back wins would continue the Boomers’ unbeaten run towards the top of group B following earlier success against Chinese Taipei away and Japan in Adelaide.
“The squad is selected in order to give us the best opportunity for success for the upcoming games,” Boomers coach Andrej Lemanis said.
“Continuity is important in the team, especially with the limited preparation time in the FIBA qualification windows.
“This is why the Asia Cup campaign was so important – it was there that we had the opportunity to build on who we are as a team and having a core group of those players available for each of the windows is key.
“In addition, current NBL form is taken into consideration, as is past performance at international level, injury status and the unique challenges of the upcoming opponents.
“We are fortunate to have such a depth of talent in the NBL and as always, that means some good players miss out.”
