Should BA lobby to join Asia?
Intersting article on Fox Sports webiste today regarding Basketball Australia and the fact the Boomers and Opals only play serious basketball every two years. the article goes on to outline reasons why BA should lobby FIBA to join Asia (or merge Oceania with Asia) to strengthen the sport in this country and region. In an nutshell it is recommending the same kind of action Football Australia took with the Socceroos. the only major difference is that Oceania gyain a direct entry into World champ's and Olymics whereas in soccer it was only a half-place (playoff against 5th ranked Sth American team).
What are people's thoughts? Not a bad idea and worth exploring I reckon.
