Norwood Easter Tournament
What has happened to this once great tournament?
It used to offer the best Victorian teams to play against. Looking through the program for this year I'd describe it as second rate if that. The best interstate teams are staying home and instead the lower Vic Championship teams are those turning up.
I notice the tournament now caters for a third division as well. This seems to be the way for the tournament to go in the future catering for low div teams just like Nunawading does.
The days of Norwood running a quality (in terms of basketball quality that is) Easter tournament are gone unless something is done. What can they do though?
Why have the top Vics stopped coming, and why are the other SA teams not interested? I heard that the reason Sturt don't play anymore is that with East Coast etc nowadays there is too much, but that only affects a very small percentage of the basketball population.
