Who else has Ingles got on his team? One player is an old Cabra student in year 10. Plays sturt div 3s and is tiny. I dont think that with someone like that on your team even with Jo could beat a team like Cabra.

Pasadena will smash Cabra! Pasadena beat us by 20 and Jo wasn't even trying. We beat Cabra by about 10 points after that. LeFevre have lost some games cos they didn't have their state players.

I heard on the grapevine PAC smashed Cabra...true? And on Benson, what grade is he now? Was he my grade (ie Yr 12 2002), or is he doing year 12 over two years (2003/4). Either way, that's a mighty big advantage!

At the moment Adam is doing year 13! PAC did smash Cabra but Cabra had 3 players and 3 of which normally play open (Dave Shinnick, Matt Jarrad and Choongy from NT state) they had 2 fill ins. One from year 10 that plays under 16s f/ville and also a year 10 girl played for them! they were not even close to their full team! I heard that Adam will not be playing knockout due to his commitment with the 6ers and is not allowed too.

Hey Yogee if you're going to be MOD then get rid of the names. If we can't post names of people playing Junior DISTRICT basketball (because of the opinion of ONE coach) then we definately shouldn't be allowed to mention names of school ballers.

Andy, both Benson and Ingles play Senior ABL and are up for discussion by the "rules" of the community. No one has passed judgement on individual performances of the others named, so they'll stand unless someone presents a good reason for their removal.

As I've said, this is a pretty vague guideline but as long as you're not commenting on the individual merits or otherwise of younger players you're OK. If they've played at a higher level, they're open for discussion. All I can see here is a bit of Benson vs Ingles, but nothing too specific.

I'd send them both to AIS, and over there they'll have be ready to take comment on their performance.

Did Bronson Kies go to the AIS? I've seen him play twice and heard that he did, but couldn't see why. He's not a bad player, but he didn't seem like he'd make the NBL.

Now, I've seen Benson get minutes in most ABL games with the Sabres and the worst he's done is missed shots. I've not seen him screw up a pass, not take an opportunity or not go hard at the boards. He's agile and has the right mindset to at least have a chance at taking his game further.

Ingles would definitely have to be a chance.

But then I don't really know what selection criteria (age, etc) that they use.

Reply #2303 | Report this post


Info man  
Years ago

The AIS picks their people on Nationals performaces (mostly) and from information from their local ITC programs. Bronson ripped up 18 Nationals and they were hoping he could become a slashing/rebounding off-guard and realised while at the AIS he'd need work on his range. This was at the same Nationals Benson was at, and played mainly a defensive role.

Also a players age comes into it as the AIS is about preparing players for the next level, playing for Australia. Starting with U20 and U23 duties.

Yes, Bronson went to the AIS.. If you think Benson should go to the AIS then you'd have to include numerous other players who have never been to the tute and are much higher calibre players than him, like Webber or Burdon, for example.

Just for everyones interest, Adam Benson is currently doing YEAR 14!!!! He failed year 12 TWICE, surely he shouldnt be eligible to play, anyway I wouldnt read too much into the results, as he is a good 2-3 years older than everyone else. Benson is renouned for his crumbling under pressure, and all that needs to be done is to hit him a few times, talk some "smack" and he's gone. On the other hand Ingles is a very talented player who deserves to go to the tute. Benson is a good 20s player, but an average to poor 10-20 minute ABA player and yet still finds a way to the 6ers training!!! If he went to the Tute, which he wont, then Australian basketball is in SERIOUS trouble!

benson over jingles, i assume you are joking. anyone outside of a mental hospital knows that joe could wipe the floor with benson. who cares about the rest of the pasadena team, they dont need them. i think people are forgetting that 45 points in 26 minutes effort at the u/18 nationals. i could never imagine someone like benson taking over a game to that degree. if he dominates school ball, who cares? he is 2, 3 years older than the rest of the comp, and still acts like he is king of the world when he is playing against these developing 16 year olds. he is already fully developed and his game aint going nowhere. joe vs benson.... no contest.

Well i can tell you now i have never seen joe ingles make an assist or set a hard pick to get someone open. Its not always about scoring. Its good to see webber making it??? He can talk it but can't walk it!!! I've seen him play 20's and all he does is shoot it every time and try and prove a point that he is the man. Burdon is way better than webber. For starters he is taller and doesn't have little man syndrome, he would have more of a chance at making than webber. The difference between Benson and Ingles is that benson takes the right shots and plays hard defence. When has ingles ever guarded someone in the post... NEVER!!! and when has he set a pick and played tough D.... NEVER!!!! So Mr Monkey Wrench grow some balls before and know what you are talkin about before you get jealous of other people succeeding especially over benson and ingles.

Regarding Ingles, if you are refering to his D at ABL level, remember his is 17 and its his first season. There were other guys on the floor guarding the bigger guys. To those who think he plays no defence, i refer you to the stats from the u/18 nationals where he was in the top of most statistical categories including IMPORTANTLY, BLOCKED SHOTS and STEALS!

No defence? i guess he just got lucky enought times? In the 45 point game in 26 minutes, i believe he also had 7 steals, 7 blocks and 8 assists...

Jingles will run a riot over any other player that has been mentioned in this thread! The only way people can say his D is questionable is because he is guarding guys who are twice his weight!

Ok fair enough, but what did he keep his player to on Defence??? i heard the player he guarded wasn't the best in the team, other players guarded their best players whilst ingles was guarding the not so good player. He is simply not a hustler he expects eveything given to him on a silver platter!!! Benson on the other hand can play tough defence and come down the other end of the court take the right shot, set a good pick, give an assist and clean up the scraps....

maybe that is why jingles WILL go to the institute. he is already an awesome player, and you are pointing out his weaknesses, which means that they can work on his weaknesses at the institute, and he can become even better. he has potential. benson, according to you, is already the complete player, so where is the need for him to go to the AIS. jingles is already better than benson, and has the potential to improve even more, which is what i thought the AIS is all about, developing the young players with plenty of superstar ingredients.

Mate i use to train with benson at state and now i play against him. He is no where near his peak. at the moment he has a good inside game, great defence, and a great want for the ball offensively and defensively. Maybe thats why the 6ers asked both of these guys to go to the 6ers so Breheny and Smyth can see how much potential they have.

Pasadena have 1 decent player. If a team can have 5 solid contributers on offence and defence. and some decent contribution off the bench then Joe cant stop em all. he could score 40 points but they cant win if the teams they play can play a team game. Pasadena have no other scorers.

Sounds a bit like a school called Lake Gininderra (not 100% re the spelling)in Canberra that won the National Schools Comp when I was playing in 1997.

That is the school that some of the AIS bball players go to.

In 1997 they had David Smith (formerly of the Melbourne Tigers) and David Andersen playing for them. They may have had another AIS guy as well but I can't remember.

The rest of the team were your average high school social bball players making the team quite funny to watch. They still won the whole thing with Andersen averaging 40 and 20.

The only game they lost was to the NSW team that featured Gary Boodnikoff. Peter Crawford played for the Townsville High School team.

It was definitely interesting watching future NBL players playing high school ball where they had the green light.

Has anybody been to the National Schools Comp since and has it featured any other NBL players?

Why should schools not give scholarships. I know for a fact that Pasadena have scholarships which involve the payment of money to players at their school.

If a school see's a benefit in having a student in their school community, surely it is up to them. Just the same as if a family can see the benefit of havnig their child receive a better education than they are currently getting because of their kids basketball ability.

Sounds like sour grapes. And I think you will find that all the Cabra student do pay fee's of some kind.

PAC was off their game. if they were on passa would have had no chance. PAC played scrap basketball because thats how they were being defended, SCRAPPY. it should have been a blackfriars PAC final no doubt in my mind

obviously pac doesnt deserve to be there coz they couldnt beat either of the teams that are in the final. If it were to be a blacks pac final, no contest. Blacks have already beaten PAC twice. Pasadena dont go deep enough to beat Blacks. Is there an all star 5 thing for KO. Umpires were giving out votes after games.

PAC should have beaten pasadena. the have the ability to beat blackfriars aswell. do you think they were trying in the semi because by the look of them i sure didn't. they lost to blackfriars by 12 the previous time but only one of their players was in double figures. back to joe ingles, oops sorry i mean pasadena, they were LUCKY to beat an off game PAC. if you think pasadena deserve the finals spot over PAC you have got your head up your arse.

jordan kies-faith
lief-blacks
joe-pasadena
lankey guy-blacks/donaldson-pac

coach would be the guy from blacks because his team had easy the most structure there.

good luck to black friars and pasadena on sunday night.

- cabra over immanuel by about 20pts
- blacks over pas (close game though)

it is true, he is one of those players that looks for a fight in anyone but i still think he was the best centre there. the talls from blacks i don't think were that fantastic. sure the guy could dunk and sure the other guy was huge but they didn't have enough skill in any other areas. donaldson can shoot outside and in and he is athletic, his game should be all interior and he doesn't really need a left hand

eley is a great shooter no doubt. probably the best spot up 3 that played in the KO but how does he get his open looks? he needs a team behind him. the PAC team made him look great. he hasn't got any other skills apart from spotting up. he would not be anyones pick for an allstar 5. you need to do more than just shoot to be a gaurd

PAC had a tough game against pasadena and only lost by 5 but the coach used the same few players and by the time they were in the semis against blacks they had no fuel left in the tank to play. They had no chance against blacks because they were on their game but could have at least put up a decent fight. It was all over by the end of the first quarter...especially with tanky #50 scoring 7 points in the first few mins and blowing the game right open.spectacular!!

i think tara robinson has worked extremely hard to get where she has and does deserve it. As for MVP, i find it difficult to see that she will be awarded it, as unley are not in the final. Rachelle benson did play well over the tournament but lacked court time. Emily sims a little to inconsistent.

Abby Bishop

ok ok ok. just so people know about the pasadena side here is some info.

Starters:
Jo - need i say anything???

Rowan - ex-sturt div 1, country state, good offensive player, good on boards, good overall defender, plays to the end (hard player)

Soren - one of the best defenders in SA can contend with anyone, great offensive mind, one of the best allround players (got alot of his game from his bros)

Aaron - good passer always looks for open man first, hits the boards hard, allright defender, shot has a little to be desired, has a fairly big mean streak to him (will stand up to anyone, loves to knock people around, watch his elbows)

Trevor - ex-south, talks alot of smack but cant seem to back it up on court, not much of a shot or a pass, likes to show off, watch his drive will take it all the way and usually finishes off.

Bench:
Mikele - sturt div 3 and 1 (occasionally) quik on feet, in your face defense, likes to drive and shoot.

Aaron - tigers div 2, good rebounder, allright shot, a little undersized for big man, plays hard.

Matt - centrals div 2, overall average player.

there just some name players. they got some other guys, but they are just to make up numbers.

will be close game sunday if both teams play well. if both play well will be a 10 point game either way im saying. you never know. lets just hope they put a good game on.

What a great performance by the hounds, all spirit those boys r. And as for all the KO hype about one joe ingles, sure he won the comp mvp, but where was he when the pressure was on??
L-Mac was just too good on his night and shut him down, if this ingles is as god as what every1 says, then what happends when the team was actually challanged by the mighty hounds.

The mighty hounds have re-ignited my b/ball spirit, and after a 2 year lay-off i have decided to return.

Its simple, these guys were simply determained to get their hands on the HOLY GRAIL.

first and formost, welldone blackfriars. but as for everyone sayin that joe was the only player on pasadena (and also a note to trevor) thats just absolute b.s. that was probably one of their best games as a TEAM. only problem was the last 2 minutes when mikele and aaron (smaller) came on, they took off 2 of the main defenders in the team (aaron and rowan). if joe hadnt been so worried about taking shots in the first 3 quaters maybe pasadena may have won, not to mention the post players had next to no touches (rowan, aaron's). the refs didnt help pasadena at all, as yet once again daniel cheats pasadena out of another game. pasadena didnt even play their best game (offensively) and their defense was average letting some easy rebounds get taken by spud. how many blocks did aaron get by the way? and wats with that big guy from blackfriars starting on aaron and joe??? oh by t he way that dunk should have been a tech, held on that ring for sometime. blackfriars and pasadena showed that defense wins championships, and that game came down to defense (just look at the scores). pasadena next year look strong to go for that title,

Why would you call a tech tho. Everyone was impressed by it. There is no point ruining a highlight just coz he hung on the ring for a bit. Its called showmanship. The whole crowd loved it. In a normal game you might call that a tech, not in a grand final though.

I think we shud all respect the fact that El Mac has bigger hops than all of us and let him hang on the ring as long as he wants!

Can sum1 that was at the final tell us all wot happened in the dunk from El-Mac.

How High did he get?
What did he do?


I think he should get drafted into the NBA coz he can dunk it good.

it was an awesome dunk, whos that random bloke paying it out.

How ballsy was it to hamma it down in the Grand Final. Anyone else would have settled for a lay up. But he is a true showman.

its a 2 handed dunk dude. not anything special. maybe if he added a pump then it would be good. it was a nice touch to the game to dunk it, but the dunk wasnt anything special.

Sundays game was terrific. as a spectator at the game, atmosphere was terrific everyone gettin behind both teams. i thought leif, spud n el mac played very well aswell as the big guy #34 (hows his eye..?) for blacks! welldone to the boys. ingles was kept alittle quiet for my liking but blacks just had the overall talent n skill and HEIGHT to beat pasadenna... Congrats Hounds. U wanted it more...

34 sounds like quite the developer 2 me. height can go along way these days. i liked his game, but he was partially out shone by the great works of spud, leif n el mac with great team support. i think 34 has potential n if hes in 20 1s he's got some good teaching

I was not at the game but word has it that Big number 34 for Blacks put in another stellar proformance this man is a juggernaut he reminds me of Moses Malone this guy can be a 20 and 20 player any league he is the real deal.

good stuff Blacks for winning the GF but with the Tanky 34 on your side I find it hard for you to loose a game.
