U18 Oceanias teams?

With the u18 Oceania tournament starting in a couple months, what might our teams look like with no USA based players being available?

Will we easily qualify for u19 worlds next year? Nz have some nice young players.

Women at serious risk of with the COE injuries ruling many out. Have heard there are possibly fractures or stress fractures of various types found in 5 of the 12 women in Canberra.

Shelley, Simons, Gould all born 00 so can still make future u19 and maybe next years world's if we qualify. yaegar must be coming from USA to play?

Shelley is ahead of Molloy, Cubillo and especially Rocci.

Unfortunate Cochrane is injured - would have been a definite. Pizzey would have been a big chance also but not available through injuries.

Are Horvat, Simmons and Magbegor going to be fit?

That looks about right -not sure about Rowe but she keeps getting selected.

Can't see any 01 players being a remote chance - u16 nationals crop looked very weak as a group this year.

The tournament is mid next year so it won't interfere with college.

To enter squad?
6'5 McDowell white
6'10 Kiir
6'11 Froling
6'11 Gak
7'0 Humphries

Doesn't leave a lot of room in the big department. 1 of s.froling or m.maker to miss out potentially.

This age group appears very deep and flushed with talent in all areas, guards, forwards and centres. If the US based players are also available Caporn will have some hard decisions to make. There are plenty of big players at the AIS/CoE to choose from, so as usual it comes down to who is fit and available as these tournaments get closer. Both men and women look good to me, they are very young but I can see them both doing very well at this level.

Age makes more of an impact in the men's than women's I think, so yes the more 1998 born players the better. Got to have strong bodies and those two are strong for sure. Add some versatility to those two with another couple of big players who can spread the floor and you have a good start. Once again, comes down to availability I guess, Kentucky and SMU may want them back in July!

Does anyone know how Gould got an invite to try out for the Oceania team? Couldn't get a run for Vic Metro at Nationals this year and did very little when given an opportunity.

Yet Goodchild and Mclean from the winning world championship team don't get invited?

I'm guessing this is another example of basketball connect the dots - or Snakes & Ladders.

The FIBA Oceania web site has the draws, but no team lists for any team either, strange with only less than a week before competition?

The Junior Tall Blacks have a big 7 footer supported by two 6'9" to 6'10" types, then the men's team looks average in height for a NZ team to me.

I am intrigued to see them play, does anyone know the strength of this team, is it in the shooting, I do recall previous teams being excellent field goal exponents...

If Simmons was fit she would start ahead of Rocci obviously and most likely Shelley, but she is on the injury list with Cochrane & Pizzey. So perhaps Conti or even Cubillo, but certainly not Rocci starting.

Boys team will be in trouble against NZ in the final, and if ever the NZ women can win this would be their best chance.

considering they have not had any training as a team, so would imagine those at the CofE will be starting to begin with, and the teams they will get to play other than NZ will be their training games in reality, the Aussie women usually thrash these Oceanic teams till they get to NZ, and this years NZ team looks to be a very good one, so will be interesting to see just how it plays out.

The Australian Emus have completed their final camp and named the team of 12 that will compete at the FIBA Oceania Championships in Fiji next week.

The winner of the qualifying tournament will book their place at the Under-19 FIBA World Championships next year which will be held in Egypt from July 1-9.

Five members of the Emus team are Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence (CoE) athletes with Lat Nai joining Angus Glover who is the only member of the side from the 2015 Under-19 World Championships.

"It's just a great opportunity to put on the green and gold," said Glover.

“I wear those colours with pride every time and everyone is focused on the job at hand. To get back and play on the world stage like in 2015 will be amazing and I feel very confident in our team to do something special.”

The other three CoE members, Kyle Zunic, Samson Froling and Tom Fullarton, experienced international competition this year at the Under-17 World Championships in Spain.

Having played eight games with the Brisbane Bullets in the NBL, Matthew Kenyon will put his season on hold momentarily as he heads overseas while participants at this year’s Athlete Development Camp in Makuach Maluach, Jacob Rigoni and Samuel Short will also compete for the Emus.

Rounding out the team are two SA Metro team mates in Ben Carter and Isaac White as well as Gabriel Hadley.

“I am very excited about this group and proud of the commitment and effort they have shown already,” said Emus head coach Adam Caporn.

“Every individual is clearly invested and passionate about upholding the ideals upon which great Australian teams have been built.”

“We have been preparing the team intensely, and we are ready to represent Australia proudly in this tournament,” concurred Timothy Mallon, Emus assistant coach.

“We have a great emphasis on team work, defensive intensity, unity and a desire to do our very best for every minute of the game.”

The Emus campaign will tip-off against Tahiti on Monday, December 5 with the full schedule for both the Emus and Gems teams available here.

The Australian Under-19 Emus for the 2016 Oceania Qualifiers:
Surname Name DOB State
Carter Ben 18/09/1999 SA Metro
Froling Samson 10/02/2000 QLD North / CoE

Emu's Men are very young, hope that doesn't go against them! Talent is there but one or two suspect calls that could hurt us against NZ. I like the Gems team very much and any age difference doesn't hurt in the women as much as it could the men.

Looking to beat NZ men with shooting, lots of shooting in this team. Bigs are there to defend and run sets to open up drives and shooting out wide. If NZ has a chance it will have to hurt AUS inside, but they will also have to shoot well too.

I disagree with the gems having no weakness.
Ogler has a different game to Simmons.
I don't see a great facilitator on this gems team. Imo, Molloy should be starting with Conti as backup. Rocci or Shelley playing 3rd string pg.
Not a great perimeter shoooting team. (Bibby and Horvat probably playing closer to the basket) Conti, and simons the only real consistent outside threat.
Magbegor is facing more physical players, (Whittaker, Dunn etc) different to those she faced in u17s. These players will try to go through her, not around her. Could get into foul trouble early.

Nz have a much better lineup than previous years. bigger, faster, lots more experience. Won't be a whitewash...

leger walker, Ruske, fuiava, Whittaker, and Dunn is a very strong lineup.

A good effort for most of the game, but our defence completely fell apart for a while in the 3rd quarter so there's room for improvement.

Gems, from what I saw, had size over the Tall Ferns. Also had skill over them, so when the Kiwi girls started losing on the scoreboard and got physical it didn't help them.

The boys are not lucky enough to have size over the Tall Blacks and the game looks like it will be tight, so I predict this will be a war!

The gems weren't that much bigger than nz on the frontline.

Reed 6'1
Dale 6'2
Mcgoldrick 6'2
Whittaker 6'3
Dunn 6'3

Rowe 6'0
Bibby 6'1
Aokuso 6'3
Mcspadden 6'4
Magbegor 6'4

Beating NZ who can't even compete when they send a team to Aussie Nationals hardly makes the Gems a gold medal prospect.

Nearly half time, Emus can't land a 3 pointer and we are losing the battle of the boards.

Lucky to be down only 7 at half time. We dodged a lot of bullets on some pretty good looks by NZ. Not impressed so far.

That, and the fact that our 3 bombs were either bricks or air balls. Lots of improvement expected for the third quarter.

the nz team they field at nationals isn't always made up with the best they have at the time.
A lot of girls are not available.

Some are overseas like Reed.

Fair enough anon', thanks for the heads up, they unfortunately won't be at worlds though.

Meanwhile half way through third Zunic and Rigoni have come on and made an impact, finally we have hit a three. Glover missing too many, good move by Caporn, but still eight points down.

NZ outrebounding us but giving it back with turnovers. I thin they have choked here after a 13 point lead, sad to see for the Kiwis after a great start but not quite over yet...

Minute and a half to go and a big three by NZ puts them up by one then Australia up by one with a quick reply, great ending coming up...

Big bank shot and a put back on the free throw by NZ and it looks like they have snatched it...

Caporn has to go.
The guy just doesn't make great decisions.

Glover trying to play hero ball.

Clinton becomes the hero.

We were always going to rely on some threes to get us home and it didn't happen today, well done to the Kiwi men and good luck to you all at worlds, commiserations to the Emus, no miracle this time.

Wow that sequence with the banked 3 and the blown box-out was a killer.
Kiwis win.

Sucks..
We could have fielded a strong team next year.

Weird lineups for Aus. Made no sense.

Congrats to nz.
They will add Wynyard to there team next year.

We try to win with small ball, again and it doesn't work so we have only ourselves to blame.
