Championship-winning former Fenix Geraldton Buccaneer Brayden Inger has been called up for international duty with New Zealand.

The Cairns Taipans NBL team, where Inger is on the roster as a development player, said in a statement he had been called up to the squad for the FIBA Basketball World Cup Asian Qualifiers in Manila, the Philippines, running February 24-28.

Tall Blacks head coach Pero Cameron said he was looking forward to seeing how Inger and other debutants went on court.

“It’ll be interesting to see how they go in the black singlet,” Cameron said.

“It’s a good squad and I’m excited by it, we’ve got a solid mix of vets with good leadership and they’re getting an opportunity to go out there and get some minutes, and we’ve got some great young guys too who I’m looking forward to see play.”

Inger won the 2019 State Basketball League with the Buccs.
