Rip City have acquired the services of three times NBL Champion, Wani Swaka Lo Buluk.

A 6’6 wing, Swaka Lo Buluk is one of the NBL’s most elite defenders and promising young stars. Although known for his ability to defend at the NBL level, Swaka Lo Buluk has proven to be an offensive threat as well, using his great size, length and athleticism to attack the basket while being a capable jump shooter.

Coach Nathan Arousi pointed to the total package that Wani will bring to the group. “Wani is an excellent defender with great versatility. He will help us immensely on the defensive end but also with his ability to slash to the basket and put pressure on the defence and continue to add to our scoring punch.”

Rip City are thrilled to have Wani on board for the 2022 NBL1 North season. Rip City take on Brisbane Capitals on the 28th May 2022 to improve to their 3 and 1 record.

Make sure you catch Wani and the men on the NBL1 website or at USC Stadium during home games!

Rip City are looking forward to the first home game on the 11th June vs Southern District Spartans.

The finals will be played in August-September after a 15-round regular season.
