Been to 2 straight Championship games at U17 Worlds as HC of the AUS U17 squad.

Seems to know his stuff.

I think you'll find Guy Molloy was the HC of the 2012 Aus U17 Men's team in Lithuania and Mark was an Assistant to Guy.

Currently the Aus U17 Men HC.

Did extremely well to get the 2014 Aus U17 team to the Gold Medal game where they made USA earn the win.

Is he the guy that played with North Melbourne during the Fisher years?

Legend, as a young coach who didnt know anything (still have plenty to learn) he was so approachable and down to earth. He is happy to share information and has a strong rapport with players. Definitely a feather in the cap for BNSW to have him.

BNSW NITP head coach. Best development coach in junior basketball.

Teaches the value of focus, hard work, discipline, respect, but when the players hit the court lets them play their game. If you look at some of the games from the U17 worlds, that is why the team made it to the gold medal game , and then pushed USA all the way.
