Legend is Ready for Season Number 22

In 1998, Matthew Snow played 3 games for the Ringwood Hawks VBL Premier League team. He was just a 14 year old kid with potential. In 2020, that same kid will line up for an incredible 22nd season of senior basketball in the hope he can help lead the Hawks to their first ever NBL1 Finals.

Age is just a number for the Hawks Legend who despite carrying various injuries managed to lead the NBL1 in assists in its inaugural season. Snow averaged an impressive 7 assist per game, but for a man who is used to winning, it was a disappointing season.

“We didn’t really get a chance to get our whole team on the floor all season and that was tough.” Snow said.

“This year we have some depth and I think if we can stay healthy we could surprise a few people.”

This week Snow headed to hospital to get a cleanup of a troublesome knee, but should be on court for the opening round of NBL1 basketball. The 36 year old has resigned himself to the fact he may never actually feel like his body is anywhere near 100%, but has still plenty to offer the Hawks who have enjoyed his leadership and understanding of the game like few others.

“I tell anyone who will listen, he is a basketball genius, he sees things a few steps ahead.” Hawks Coach Ken Harrington said.

“Even at well below being 100% he can find a way to control the game and keep us heading in the right direction.”
