Basketballer Blair Smith to make comeback with Phoenix Power

AT age 41 and after being away from the court for the past five years, basketballer Blair Smith is making a comeback.

Smith has signed with Phoenix Power for the 2013 season.

Men's coach Dale Iwanicki said Smith had been impressive in his outings to date and had shown he still had what it took to play in the QBL despite his age.

"The addition of Blair this season will give us the additional size up front to compete with some of the bigger teams in the QBL," Iwanicki said.

"His experience is priceless and he's already formed great chemistry with point guard Shaun Gleeson."

Phoenix Power Men play their last preseason game this weekend in Bundaberg before the season starts on May 11.
