Sharpshooting small forward Felix von Hofe is the latest signing of the Melbourne Tigers for the 2020 NBL1 season.

Von Hofe, a Tigers’ junior, was a regular member of Victorian Junior State teams and represented Australia in under 17 and under 19.

Felix had a stellar college career over four years at the University of Eastern Washington, setting the all-time record for 3 pointers made, amongst other notable achievements.

Felix returned to Australia and joined Dandenong’s SEABL team, before moving to Kilsyth for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. At the same time, he won a Development Player role at NBL Club Melbourne United.

“Felix will stretch any defence and is a weapon to be feared”, said Tigers GM Chris Brooking. “He’s a mature athlete and well accustomed to playing at the high tempo that NBL1 demands. It’s great to have him back at the Tigers where he will re-join former teammate and good friend Dane Pineau”.

“Felix is a very important part of building a cohesive, competitive and balanced roster that can challenge, in what will clearly be a very tough league in 2020. It’s great to have a local Tiger back in the den”, added Brooking.
