One of Australia's finest homegrown athletes, Matthew "Delly" Dellavedova started his basketball career in regional Victoria playing for his hometown, the Maryborough Blazers. He spent three years at the AIS, before representing Australia for the first time captaining the U/19 Australian team at the World Championships in New Zealand.

Dellavedova received a full athletic scholarship to attend St. Mary's College of California in the USA where he had his singlet retired after finishing as St. Mary's all-time leader in points, assists, games played, and three-pointers made. Delly broke into the NBA in 2013 and became the sixth Australian to win a coveted NBA Championship in 2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dellavedova currently plays for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Delly also represents his home country as a member of the Australian Men's National Team. He has competed in two Olympic Games and a FIBA World Championship campaign as a Boomer.

Off the court, Delly enjoys angel investing, a good bottle of wine, playing golf at his local Par-3 course, reading, and starting his day off right with some avocado toast.
