re: Aussies in the NCAA 2015/16 Season

each year it appears more and more of our kids go to college, do you think that then weakens to 18 to 23yr old areas that fill our BigV and SEABL teams or is it worth it to get the stronger ones coming back to the senior ranks.

A large portion of those listed in the Div1 colleges are in really weak conferences, so you have to ask would they have been better staying and playing in BigV/SEABL where they would be playing against women(and men as its the same for boys) not kids their own age,it shouldn't be all about the hype of going to college, its easy to get a college offer, its the good offers that are hard to find.
How many of those listed are in top 10 or even top 20 programs.

Or are they going because their is not a lot here for them. BA should be looking at this and asking these same questions

Worse still anon #739 believes it is easy to get a college offer, really champ have you tried? Plenty of kids over there in strong D2's that are just as good as some of these D1 players too, but no scholarships are easy to get and you have to earn their keep with good grades or you are out!

Re college v Big V Maybe think of this from the players perspective College brings with it a lifestyle They would not train 20 hours per week playing Big V they would not play in front of crowds of thousands in big V. They would hvae to work or go to uni and would not experience life of an athlete. These kids have only one chance to play college and that is straight out of school If they love the game why not experience it at the fullest Who cares how strong the conference is Most of them wont make a life long living from bball alone so let them enjoy the ride

My kid is over there in a strong D2 college at the moment and loving it, but he is studying hard and wants the education as much as the experience and the basketball. They call them student-athletes, the word student comes first. While it is all good for those who wan to be pro-basketball athletes, realistically speaking it is a very small window and lots can go wrong. Wish all of them well, but without an education these days you do leave yourself and your future vulnerable.

That is probably because up until a few years ago the AIS provided a viable pathway for Ausie talent. The women's program was not as adversely effected by the cut back to CoE as they were far more highly ranked at the time and still are. The future will see many div 1 college players in our national teams IMHO.

We are ranked number 2 in the world so I'm not sure it is Australia's problem. Maybe less men should go to College and we would be more competitive?

To be an Opal/Boomer maybe only 1 or 2 per age group year will ever do that. The CoE will no doubt invite the most likely of these into the BA system.

Interesting view point LC, that of Australian representation. Thing is, that we can only fit a few players into the Boomer squad at any time.

Basketball, being what it is, more and more we increase the number of quality athletes in our sport, the more we approach the problem of not being able to fit them all in.

I am not saying we will be like the USA, who could produce 4 world class national teams, I am saying it is potentially a great problem to have.

We will need them all though, because as has been experienced in the past, when they make the NBA they may not always be allowed to play for their country either...

For a lot of these good college athletes though it's not just about playing for boomers or opals, it's about taking their basketball to the next level to actually be able to make a living from what they love. So maybe not all will be able to make the aus teams but some may choose to forgo that avanue ( some already have) and keep playing in Europe, nba/wnba.

re: Aussies in the NCAA 2015/16 Season

And let's not forget these are just the kids with the grades to get into a 4 year school in D1. D2 kids will have made the decision on playing time and quality of education. There are other players who have had to go the JuCo route because of grades who will no doubt end up in D1 as transfers. While I agree that the sheer number of kids heading off to college will leave holes in our domestic adult comps, it's not about us, it's about them!

For 90% it's not about getting into the National team, it's about free(-ish) education, eat/breathe basketball 24/7 for 4 years and life experience. It's also about experiencing the basketball skills and coaching in a country where there are more full time professional coaches with decades of experience than you can poke a stick at! As some of the imports in our domestic leagues showed, the skills and athleticism of US college players is often amazing. Imagine what these kids will bring back to Australia if and when they return in terms of skills and experience from total immersion in a hopefully professionally run program. Skills in conditioning, recruiting, film analysis, injury management, logistics, game management, training methods, scouting etc etc. Imagine how the journey will shape them as adults.

I doubt any of them actually care about which conference they play in. The ones in the stronger conferences will ride the pine a lot more than the ones in weaker conferences who should get good time as freshmen, and they all have an opportunity for participating in March Madness if they do well in whatever conference they play in. The kids outside of the standouts in the stronger conferences are more at risk of being recruited over the top of, so there are a lot of factors involved in what division, what conference, what university they accept.

I can't wait to see what this contingent of young men and women do, but I bet we'll all be very proud of the products of our Aussie basketball communities!

Pineau is going to Boston College in the ACC, not Seattle.

Going to get a degree paid for, wether it is d1, d2 etc doesn't matter, is far more valuable than playing SEABL,NBL or WNBL from 18-22. Both are really part time leagues for young kids. Small percentage will make a living playing basketball. Getting a degree and life experience of being away from home and in the USA college system is worth way more.

Girls have been far more reluctant than boys to go to USA for college but that should change. Other than really top/elite players ie Jackson, Cambage going to college and being in a full time USA program is equal to or better than training 3 times a week and playing once a week in the WNBL.

Boys it is a no contest. College system has prepared them to be better basketball players than staying home..... Bogut, Mills, Delle, Bairstow, Simmons, Brokoef, Motum, etc etc etc.....
Like it or not the college system offers them a degree to fall back on and a better pathway to basketball success as well.

re: Aussies in the NCAA 2015/16 Season

LC is there any particular conference web sites or just the NCAA posts that you would recommend to see how our Aussies abroad are doing?

I wouldn't expect the Yanks to focus on our basketball athletes, but if they do well any particular week they will be promoted within that conference as a highlight player regardless I imagine.

They seem to do some really good stories over there, like the interviews with Drmic and others in the past, but some do it better than others, so just wondering if you have some links worth following especially in D1 or D2 basketball...

ESPN and CBS are very good for covering the best performing men, but most team websites are pretty good across men and women.

Use the team and conference website links on our listing to get directly there.

The women's coverage is pretty much limited to team and conference sites.

As an update, the top 5 Aussie freshman women list has been updated. Dani Milisic has been confirmed as actually being a class of 2016 athlete and hence has been replaced.

Such is the class of the incoming freshmen, combined with the outstanding talent of those returning, we are set for a massive season ahead. However who will be the standout Aussie this season? Guess who is the frontrunner...

I think the floodgates had already opened, however the talent coming through right now has never been higher.

Bear - we have D1 lists for men and women, and I can tell you it was a lot of time and effort to get them set up, let alone maintain. 300+ D1 basketball programs!

Extending to D2 and beyond is even more effort, but would be great to be able to offer. However our current capacity with our existing resources does not allow it. If someone wanted to help out with compiling the list, we could definitely place up on the site too.

I think you guys are doing a great job LC, of course it is time consuming and with more people helping I am sure you guys could cover all Aussies in D1 to D3, keep up the good work hopefully down the track it will become easier.

I guess my point is technology driven, if somehow we could cut the time to research every Aussie by having some kind of connect with the colleges themselves?

I am not sure how it would be done but the time it takes is obviously the catalyst for improvement and technology may be the answer...

This time it's Claire Ioannidis making waves! 29pts in her first Div1 game.

"Junior-transfer Claire Ioannidis led the way for the Ospreys with 29 points, the most in a single game by any North Florida women's basketball player in the program's D-1 era (2005-present). She was a perfect, 12-for-12 from the free throw line, also a school record for the most free throws without a miss in a single game. Ioanndis was key in icing the game down the stretch, as all 12 of her free throws came in the fourth quarter, eight in the final minute of the game...."

On the pick and roll, we hear about maybe 20-30 per year. think of it as a select menu of a few. I posted some links showing all the kids in action on just one day.

re: Aussies in the NCAA 2015/16 Season

I just want to be clear on what the PnR reports on with regards to the performances of Aussies in the NCAA.

Our primary focus is on D1, and even then it is on the players who are seeing plenty of court time and making large contributions as generally people want to know who are those that are playing and doing really well. Our resources only enable us to cover at this level, although we would love to do more.

As Europa points out, to cover everyone is a logistical nightmare. So with that in mind, those players not playing or they are receiving very little court time will therefore not receive very many mentions.

We do however have a full listing of all the D1 players for men and women with links to teams and conferences.

Simmons is clearly going to be great and almost certainly Australia's best ever, but apart from having to work on his shot, has anyone noticed he finishes exclusively with his right hand? Can he truly be called ambidextrous when he shows a total unwillingness to use his left hand?

I think I heard or read something where he said he finishes with his right when he drives left to draw more fouls, but there have been a few times he has been blocked going left and finishing with the right when a left-handed finish would have avoided the block.

This isn't to detract at all from his immense talent and potential, but it is perhaps another (less talked-about) area he will have to work on for the next level.

Jois could get some very good offers in Europe, fringe NBA but is currently unable to stretch defenses as he has not yet demonstrated range to the arc. Europe seems most likely.

It's great to see Aussies doing well, but you also need to put it into context.
howcstrong is the team they are in? Are they the best players on that team, then look at the conferences the team plays in, and how they rank nationally.

Using SMU as an example, Simmons is surrounded by strong players, and that's not Taking anything away from his game as he's having a stand out season, Froling on the other hand would be the strongest on that team for sure( also great player) SMU men's sit at the top of their conference and rank 13th nationally, yet their actual conference is not classed as a top one in the NCAA, the SMU women on the other hand, sit mid field, yes they have THE best team in the NCAA in Conneticut for the women , but the rest in their conference don't even rank, SMU themselves come in at 135 , so it all needs to be put into perspective, bit like having a bench player for a state team go play domestic of course they should be raking up the stats, but put them up against a strong opponent and the outcome could be different( though both these would be strong in any game so yes makes my comment look a little crazy but SMU was the best way to point out the differences between comps and standards.)
Some of the standards these kids are playing in and against are not actually that good just because they are ranked as DIV 1......... It's the size of the college that gives the ranking, not the depth.

re: Aussies in the NCAA 2015/16 Season

There were several excellent performances by Australians, but this week no doubt belonged to Alicia Froling. The sophomore forward set two school records and also compiled career-high's in scoring and rebounding on her way to leading SMU to victory against Cincinnati. Elsewhere, the freshmen had a week to remember, with Courtney Woods, Megan McKay, and Rachel Brewster all producing top-notch performances.

The usual faces put in excellent shifts this week, with Funda Nakkasoglu, Lauren Nicholson, and Alicia Froling all among the top performers. There were also some great performances from some more unlikely sources, as Kiara Phillips helped Norfolk State break their season duck, whilst Alex Delaney and Yasmin Miller also showcased some scintillating play.

Yet another Australian set a record this week, as Steph Collins broke single season blocks record at SMU, moving two clear of Alicia Froling's 2014/15 mark of 54, while Froling received conference honours for the 6th time this season. Elsewhere, Marena Whittle returned to form with a pair of double-doubles, whilst Chelsea Roberts’ shooting was instrumental in a pair of victories for Tennessee-Martin.
