Former UH forward Jack Purchase has signed with the Melbourne Tigers of Australia’s National Basketball League 1.
The NBL1 is a level below the premier NBL.
“Feels pretty good to be back home playing,” Purchase texted to the Warrior Beat. “Played for the Tigers in the juniors and feels good to be able to put the Tigers’ jersey back on again.”
The NBL1’s games are played in Melbourne and Tasmania, Purchase said.
Purchase earned a bachelor’s degree this past weekend. He said he was a mid-season addition. The NBL1’s season runs through August.
The hope is that Purchase can parlay this stint into a shot with the NBL.
