The Australian under 16 Nationals are currently being played at Kilsyth here in Melbourne at the moment and like all basketball lovers, i decided to go and check out a game or two. After consulting the fixture, i saw that South Australia Metro were playing Vic Metro last night. Based on the reputation of South Australia metro i thought "good game" and myself and a posse decided to make the trek to Cold Kilsyth. Arriving at the game several minutes into the first quarter, i took my seat and the score was 21 to 2 in favour of Vic Metro.
I watched the game expected to see the SA boys make a run at it. Comments such as "South Australia always produce one or two good shooters...." I waited and watched and waited and watched and whilst the SA toiled and played their hardest, they ended up losing by fifty something points to the Vics.
The South Australian team had very little height and their structure seemed to be limited, so this led me to think, what is going on with South Australian basketball? These kids are all good players in their own right, but they took a massive hit by the Vic boys who are a good team. Never in my time in basketball in Australia have i heard of a Sth Australian team being fllogged by this margin.
