think they might be in for a bit of a shock to the system with this new format, they wont get the easy 100pt wins against the likes of Japan and China, like they have done every year at Oceania champs

Too many bigs.
Hollingsworth, anstey, Hannan and Rees?
With Nnopu, Potter and Pollerd who have all been playing as pfs.

Not sure the big centres will be able too keep there 5'10 man in check.
Would have taken 1-2 bigs less and taken another perimeter shooter.

Apart from Potter, Nnopu and Pollerd, not a great defensive unit.

No Griffin isn't really a surprise given the gap between the '01 and '02 boys. The only '02s to make it were clearly outstanding. I think the boys are pretty much as expected after the squad was named, the surprises were all in who was left out of camp.

I agree with #715, it's going to be a big step up from Oceania, especially for the boys.

Think we could standardise on metric heights, since we haven't legally used imperials for how many decades now?

Take it from me [I've done it] ... say to a kid of this age - and a good measure of the wider society - that they need to step off their 'man' by a foot, or a yard, or that someone is an inch taller or shorter than them and they literally won't know what you are saying.

I know basketball is an American sport, but this is Australia.

And yet every single one of the kids listed would be able to tell you his/her height in feet and inches

The BA Calendar shows the U16 Asia Championships is either 5-12 October or 2-12 November so you would think the later would be more realistic.

Aussie teams look good.
Both should qualify although I'm not sure they are guaranteed to win.
Not sure how good the Japan/china women's team is or the china/Korean men's.

Think there will still be a few changes come next year.

Good to win gold but lack of good shooters and not our best players on the floor.
Just saying some overrated players!!

Yeah I reckon, 2-3 changes needed.

A shooter, a slasher and I'm sure Anstey will come back into the side.
All need to be quick and play good d.
