WIMMERA basketball export Mitch Creek has played in Germany, China and Canberra this year.
He will add his home town to the list tomorrow night when he suits up for the Horsham Hornets.
Creek, 18, has had a stellar 12 months in which he won an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship, led Australia to victory at the Albert Schweitzer Tournament in Germany and winning the most valuable player award.
He has also made two visits to China.
Creek said he believed his appearance against Western Port at 7.30pm tomorrow night could be his last in a Hornets singlet.
"I won't really get another chance to do it because of how packed my schedule is," he said.
"My next holidays are not until after the season and from then things will be pretty full on. I trained with the Hornets on Tuesday. It brought back a lot of memories and felt great to be on court with the team."
The Big V Basketball League contacted the Hornets last night and said the club might not be able to suit Creek up unless they paid a fine.
Creek said he planned to pay the fine himself and suit up, but the club and Creek were still seeking advice when the Mail-Times went to press.
He said the decision to play a game for the Hornets came out of the blue.
"I caught up with Tim Pickert and I was talking with him and he joked that I could play for the Hornets," he said.
"But I thought about it and realised I could play for the Hornets because my season with the institute is over, so there is nothing stopping me from registering and playing.
"So I talked with a few of the boys and then asked coach Steve Bruce if I could play.
"I'm really pumped up about it. I hope I can give the team some energy and help us get finally get a win."
Hornets guard Jake Lloyd said he was excited about having Creek out on the court.
"I think we can find a spot for him," Lloyd said.
Creek is scheduled to play for Australia against New Zealand in an under-19 world championships qualifying series in September in Palmerston North, New Zealand.
He will then have ankle surgery before returning to training near Christmas.
The Wimmera Roadways Horsham Hornets play Western Port at Horsham Basketball Stadium at 7.30pm.
