Adam Doyle gets his shot with the Sixers

Adelaide 36ers development player Adam Doyle has signed a one-year contract with the team for the 2016/17 NBL season. The 176cm point guard signs his first full-time contract after spending four years with the Sixers – three as a development players and one as a training player. Doyle earned his place with strong performances for the Adelaide 36ers in their recent trip to China. "We played against some high-level basketballers in an international situation and Adam played really well," said 36ers Head Coach Joey Wright. "His ability to get the team into the sets we were running, to stay poised, his ability to shoot the ball and his tenacity at the defensive end impressed us all." Doyle has played in the South Australian Premier League since 2010 – and won a three-peat with the Forestville Eagles from 2011-2013, earning the Grand Final MVP award in 2012. In 2014, Doyle was playing for the Knox Raiders in the SEABL against the visiting University of Hartford team where he tore his ACL, requiring surgery ahead of the 2014/15 NBL season. “Having that year off because of my knee was a really strong motivator to get back, better than ever,” said Doyle, crediting coach Wright in his recovery. “Joey’s support in the year I had off really helped me mentally to get back. He really is a players’ coach.” Doyle is still playing for the Eagles, currently averaging 22.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and four assists as he gears up for his first NBL season. “Watching Jerome Randle last year was really valuable – he’s an NBA-quality player and the way he reads the game taught me a lot. “Mitch Creek is definitely ready to step up, and I’ve been training with DJ [Daniel Johnson] during the off-season. “I have a feeling they’re really going to step up this year – and I’m hoping I’ll be able to play my role and bring energy to the team.” Born and raised in Adelaide, the 24-year old grew up watching the 36ers and couldn’t be happier to officially join his favourite basketball team. “I grew up watching the Sixers as a kid, so signing with them means a lot to me,” said Doyle. “I’ve put in a lot of hard work over the last few years. Of course, I don’t want to get ahead of myself – I need to have a good season. But I’m ready.”
