After growing up in Brisbane and playing at Brisbane State High School, then the Australian Institute of Sport, Mitch went on to play NCAA basketball at St Marys, leading the West Coast Conference in field goal percentage.
The 25-year-old power forward played 87 NBL games for Cairns in 2014 and 2015 including the 2014-15 grand final series. Young started in 12 games for Townsville last season and has played 99 total NBL games to date.
Mitch plays QBL basketball locally, for the Logan Thunder.
Coach Lemanis Says:
“With the addition of Mitch we have a high quality spread of talent with plenty of flexibility in the front court. We were very pleased that he wanted to come home and play for Brisbane.”
