^ Latrentis, I'm not so sure your suggestion is correct?
What year, what age group are you talking about?
U16 Men - didn't win the Gold Medal in 2010, 2013, 2014 & 2015. In each of these years I don't believe there was a Melbourne (Tigers) head coach. In 2013 & 14 the HC was from Diamond Valley I believe.
However, in the U18 Men - Melbourne Tigers Coaching Director Nick Abdicevic coached the U18 Men - but did not coach a VJBL team at the time - so this is a different to the Bulleen coach situation.
National U18 Results:
U18 Men - Melbourne Tigers Nic Abdicevic coached the U18 Vic Metro in 2012 (Silver), 2013 (Gold), 2014 (Gold). So not the same as the Bullen situation.
2012 Silver Medal - 3 Melbourne Tiger Players. This team also included Dante Exum & Ben Simmons and had a total of 5 U17 Australian Representatives who won a Silver medal in the 2012 FIBA world Champs losing to the USA by 33 pts. Melb Tigers won the U18 VJBL Silver Medal losing to Diamond Valley who had 2 players in the U18 State team.
2013 Gold Medal - 4 Melbourne Tigers players. 2 played for Australia in 2014 U17 FIBA World Championships (Silver Medal - lost to USA by 7 pts) & 3 played for Australia in 2015 U19 FIBA world championships. Melbourne Tigers won the U18 VJBL Gold Medal.
2014 Gold Medal - 6 Melbourne Tigers players. 3 played for Australia in 2014 U17 FIBA World Championships (Silver Medal - lost to USA by 7 pts) & 2 played for Australia in 2015 U19 FIBA world Championships. Melbourne Tigers won the U18 VJBL Gold Medal.
So, I would say this is not the same situation as the Bulleen coach situation.
