@Observer, while your point about results is not avoidable, this tournament is more than just about us and NZ qualifying for worlds, it is also about the game in the Oceania region.

Nonethless, results kind of won't change, how can small island nations compete with our population, facilities, expertiese and money??

hi bear, it is difficult, we all want to improve the standard in oceania, but lop sided scores against world ranked teams will not achieve this result. A tournament without Aust and NZ i think would be more beneficial for these immerging countries.

A short tour to Australia or NZ with a couple of games against teams of their standard could be awarded to the winner of the tournament. This would cost less than sending out teams to Fiji for games that are of no benefit and reap better results.

There is always room for considerations to improve such things, however if you were involved with a FIBA Oceania event personally and spoke with these young adults and kids who play against us and NZ you would understand that it is as much a cultural and personal experience for them as important the competition result is to us.

They absolutely look forward to an opportunity to play the big boys from Aus and NZ, they aren't that worried about the score, that's not the point for them, it is being able to play against the best oceania has to offer.

I think it is what makes Oceania unique, so I wouldn't change it by limiting the opportunity for island nations to experience playing against us, just to try to even up some results, it goes against the spirit of Oceania I think...

The women's team scored 130 without hitting a 3 and only going to the line 4 times.
68 points off turnovers & 90 points in the paint.
What have they gained from this tournament?

Hey bear man, you need to get your hand out of cooke jar, this is a disgrace and waste of money. B.A should be enbarassed by sending our elite athletes over to fiji for a holiday. Would the USA,or other European countires do this, no way, they wouldn't waste there time.

BOB911 should really check his facts before posting such rubbish. If our teams didn't go then they wouldn't qualify for the WC. I am not certain, however, I am pretty sure USA don't have to go to a qualifying tournament due to the fact they are reigning champs, I could be wrong though.

It's lovely that the kids from around the region get a holiday in Fiji and they enjoy it, but how does this translate into improving quality or increasing participation?

Destiny castro could even score against our aussie girls. Guam are so small no wonder the score was that bad they managed 4 points from the field and 4 from the foul line. Our guards didnt even move out of first gear it was basically slight pressure on ball carrier Guam coighed ball up one of the guards scooped it up and passed it down crt usually to Montana farah seaton who has a field day cherry picking if you watch the live stream or they just passed it in to a big. The standard is terrible and whilst I can see how this event can be beneficial to those oceanic areas why can they not just let them have a tournament and the top two then come play Australia and new zealand to qualify.and from what I am hearing the facilities our athletes are dealing with are really poor with a lot of them being ill from it.

Aussie girls should beat NZ by 30 to 50 points. This really won't be a contest at all. The Aussies girls have too much height, athleticism, skill & class.

Wish I could say the same about the boys. The NZ team have been very impressive. NZ has a significantly better 3P shooting % and have played every game with enthusiasm and ran out the games.

The same can't be said for the Aussies. They've been shooting poorly, have not played with much energy, but have still been able to post big wins like NZ.

I hear all of the team have battled with sickness and diarrhoea. So let's hope they're up for this as NZ look like they've put a lot of work into this one, whilst the Aussies look like they've been distracted with the U17's World's, a lack of preparation for this one and the last minute withdrawals of Humphries & McVeigh, who are big losses.

It will be a tight contest, NZ won't be easy beats & won't just roll over, just hope the Aussies are not over confident.

It will be a big test of character for the Emus, if the Tall Blacks don't choke we will have big problems, but over confidence may not be one of them...

Two subs for Aust, the difference is zero, they just hit two more 3's to close the gap. No inside game without Humphries!

Finally, in comes Abi to make some presence felt under the hoop. Maybe not as tall as the NZ bigs but just as strong.

Freeman comes in for NZ and they start jacking up long bombs, giving Aus a chance to hit the lead by giving up their inside advantage. Go figure?

Still 2 and half qtrs to go, long time!

Hunter not being used much, Froling looks like he must be ill, it will be up to Akintola and Vague to carry the load inside for Aus?

Second half could be interesting, NZ must feel they are a chance if they get back to their game plan.

Freeman for NZ can't hit a barn with a bazooka, they need to get inside to Wynyard and Co. if they want to win.

Not quite 3/4 time and looks close.

I will predict if NZ are going to win they need the following on court to do the job:

Bezzant
Timmins
Wynyard

If AUS men are going to hold on and get over the line they will need these guys to keep the pressure on:

Akintola
Krebs
Vague

Anyone else who can step up and make a difference from either team could tip the balance in this game!

White and Wilson miss a 3 and a 2, Brooks for NZ makes a 2 and it is 68 all with a T/O and just over 4.30 to go!!!!

The natives are getting anxious, while I reckon they are getting warmed up over the ditch.
