National Under 20s 2017

Starts February 12th in Bendigo.

Women's competition looks like Vic and then daylight.

Men's under 20's may be a lot closer this year.

What do people think?

I would be surprised if Victoria women are pushed in many games, they look really strong.

Who are the dominant players for SA men that would make them favorites?

SA men look strong, with Hank they have genuine size and Rigoni is flexible and probably the best player in this team also White is a very good shooter, but I don't know much about the others.

Oh, Carter was at FIBA, he looked unfit against NZ but has a big body although not as tall as Hank are their two big guys just a little too big?

NSW will probably rely a lot on Glover, Maluach and Zunic, once again I know little about the others on that team but they will be strong I think.

Top u18 girls will be trying to get into current or future u19 squad and the u16 girls will be gunning for a place on the u16 Asia qualifiers team.

I'm sure there is a thread for those, this is about the 20's.

WA has a huge kid Ferguson, 7'0' or something but I don't know the rest of the team?

Short,Hadley and Loyd to stand up for Vics.
Short to be best point guard there and could be creative for shooters.
Good clash of guard positions in this tournament.

True, the guards battle will be important. Victorian big guys will more than hold their own but if the guards play well the Victorian men will be hard to beat.

A question:

two and a half weeks out from the Nationals the AIS/COE kids are requested back to Canberra to perform in another tournament instead of training with their State teams, so does BA really rank this under 20's event highly?

Game one is over with the Vic men getting up 74-63 over QLD. Cameron with 16 and Fullerton 12 led the Maroons while for Vic it seems the shooting guards Hadley with 24 and Short 11 will have a big tournament.

Although lacking size the Vic team dominated the boards, does anyone have thoughts on the game? Victoria play again tonight v ACT. SA men v Tas are up next!

SA men get over the line today in a high scoring game and as expected Vic women power through to round two while the Vic men are holding a good lead v ACT tonight.

Earlier NSW men hold off WA in an even higher scoring game 110 to 100.

NSW not much better at 20%.

Almost half time between NSW and Vic men and Vic have a handy 15 point lead.

Hadley and Colina doing it for the Vics with the scoring being shared around while NSW are relying too much on Glover as expected.

I saw following some of the stats, and I am amazed at how poorly the three point percentages are in some games. Like tonight, halfway into the third quarter, NSW is 1/8 and Vic 1/12, how bad is the shooting?

Correct, there are a few players who didn't get there, maybe injured or some other thing got in the way and emergencies were given a chance instead. Same for Vic men too.

Vic men wiping the floor with Tassie at half time. Tas 0/6 from beyond the arc probably a big factor for a noted 3 point shooting team.
