Tamuri Wigness joins the Centre of Excellence

What a great opportunity for this young man to accept a scholarship to the COE.

Can someone please tell me his date of birth?

His handle, shooting and quickness, reminds me of Patty Mills at the same age

He has got all the skills, but he has a lot of physical growing to do if he wants to make the nba.

Aussie, he is better than mills at the same age. Right now he has a better handle than mills, much quicker as well.

Has a very nice pull-up and step-back jumpshot for his age. Impressive indeed!

Great highlight reel. Looking forward to seeing her career develop.

If anything I can't stand young players being criticised for their perceived lack of height in this game, it really crushed my hopes as a kid and those comments all came from the wrong people.

I hope he continues to love and pursue the game.

A lot of players tend to come out of the CoE with under-developed individual skills (handle, pull-up etc.), so I guess it's lucky that Tamuri already has a head-start in that area.

So where is the accountability re: poor development by CoE? Everyone says fundamentals are not polished yet keeps happening. Excellence,..lol

Cairns Taipans star Jamar Wilson isn't ashamed to say 11-year-old Tamuri Wigness "crossed him up".

Wow

He is an insane player with amazing skills and yeah, obsession with the height of a 15 year old.. He should reach 5'11 which will be fine at a top level with his speed and skill.

he is from the Torres Straight.
