It didn't take the Albury-Wodonga Bandits' latest addition long to have an impact at his new club.
Perth Wildcats' wing Wani Swaka Lo Buluk impressed for the Border outfit in its 99-84 victory on the road to Dandenong on Saturday night, with 19 points and nine rebounds in 26 minutes on the floor.
Mitchell Dance continued his strong run of form with a game-high 26 points, while big man Johnny Crnogorac had 16 rebounds to go with his 19 points.
Coach Brad Chalmers was pleased with the way the side performed at both ends of the court.
"If we keep playing like that, we're going to be pretty dangerous, which was good," Chalmers said.

"Wani (Swaka Lo Buluk) showed a bit of class, but we obviously had multiple contributors that helped him along the way.
"Johnny (Crnogorac) played well after a tough game on Friday where he wasn't able to give us much of a an impact. It changes our dynamic when you have your big guy playing with some force.
"Mitch (Dance) and 'Hutrchy' (Lochlan Hutchinson) were really good and we went really deep and had weapons running around everywhere.
"We were just tough to guard and I think we wore them down with weight of numbers."
The Bandits fell short of a sweep after a nail-biting 87-83 loss away to Bendigo on Friday night.
It leaves them 14th with a 4-8 record ahead of a home double against Diamond Valley and Hobart next weekend.
