To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Geelong Supercats we chat with a legend from the club's time in the NBL (1982-1996) Daren Rowe, the only man to record a quadruple-double in NBL history.

Rowe averaged 19.5 points, 10.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.3 steals and 2.1 blocks during three NBL seasons.

Hear him talk about how the Supercats had the Geelong Arena rocking in the 1990's, playing alongside legends like Shane Heal, Bobby Locke and John Dorge and the night he went off 25 points, 17 rebounds, 11 blocked shots and 11 assists playing in all but 34 seconds of the game as Geelong defeated North Melbourne 131-123. 

Topics discussed on the podcast include;

  • Geelong Supercats celebrate 40 year anniversary (2:00)

  • Daren's path to being a professional basketball player (12:00)
