Jr NBA champs

Anyone have a link to streams of these games?

Bulleen(Asia pacific) went 2-0 day 1
Eltham(Asia pacific) went 1-0 day 1

Odd though that other teams are not best of region, but instead made of of best prospects from multiple countries.

Making it the best prospects in the country is the way it should be. We should be sending our future Crocs and Sapphires.

The Americans are regional teams like us and Canada. The other internationals are prospects.

If it was best of Asia pacific, we'd only get maybe 4-6 girls and boys going.
The rest would be nz and other Asian nations.

It's Aus clubs vs. other nations otherwise the results would be even more lobsided.

I like it like this. It's obviously loosely based on the Little League World Series and because it is regional winners, it retains a bit of a feel of a kids’ event rather than an elite showcase. Elite talent id with this age group would be almost exclusively about who is the most physically mature, so basically a waste of time

from what very little I have seen so far looks very similarly presented as AAU nationals as an event. But international.

A shame the Aussie teams don't get to play the U.S teams come finals as would be great to see how we sit talent wise. Still a great experience for the kids though.

Pretty crazy what these young kids can do.

The club teams from Australia and Canada are probably the best teams in the international bracket. Even though the other teams were selected from a wider area, they are a long way from being continental all-star teams or national teams.

so Bulleen lost by 1 to Europe - are they now playing for placings / consolation games ? Will they not get to play USA teams - only the winner of the international pool ?

Would be great if they played some of the USA teams.....

Both Australian teams won their first knockout games easily and will face the Canadian representatives in the semifinals of the international brackets.

International teams don't crossover to play U.S teams. Would be great if they could substitute an India or Mexico team for a NZ or a second European team (given the size of Europe). Would make the championships a bit more competitive.

Bulleen girls beat Welland Warriors of Canada 52-44, outscoring the Canadians 19-8 in the fourth quarter. They will have a rematch with Europe in the international final.

Eltham boys couldn't hold an early lead and lost to Brampton Breakdown of Canada 64-52. They'll finish the tournament with a game against one of the eliminated American teams.

that's a pretty good effort considering Europe included Russia - would be interested to know how the European team was selected - i.e. tournaments ? applications ? camps ? about 10 times the population factor to select from.

"The European regional champion will consist of the top players from Jr. NBA League programs across 17 countries in Europe (Czech Republic, England, Finland, France, Georgia, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, Serbia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey). Each program is invited to nominate their best Jr. NBA League players to compete at a selection camp in Slovenia for the 10 available spots on the boys and girls teams that will represent Europe in the Jr. NBA World Championship. The selection camp will take place in April 2018."

Bulleen will face the US runner-up Germantown Lady Panthers in their final game.

I stand corrected as some International teams are playing U.S teams. Didn't look like they were going to based on the scheduling. Makes U14 Club Champs that much more exciting now if a gold equals an invite to NBA Jr Champs!

It won't work like that in the future because all the other Asian nations and nz will miss out.

It'll be something like
3 Aussies, 3 Japanese, 2 Korean, 2 nz.

Latrentis - you were nearly correct. There are no crossovers until the final/third place games. Similar to Little League World Series format from baseball.

Heal, Marshall and McIntyre are probably shoe ins for next years u16 vic metro team.
Good potential.
Heal already showed that this year.

I love the hyperbole from the NBA describing this event as a "world championship".

While the teams from the US maybe (possibly) representative of the best talent of their region, it is certainly not the case of Asia Pac.

Perhaps we should describe the grand final of the AFL as the "world series" or "world championship"?

Honestly the Americans can be so full of crap.

Hopefully next year Asia Pac will be a true super team from the area and they will probably do well. However there is something to be said for a team who have played together for two years going over, that was clearly obvious with the girls. Well drilled, knew where each other would be on the court. Tess Heal is going to dominate in teh future, absolute star and great attitude aswell.

The US teams are club teams just like the Australian teams. They won regional tournaments to qualify.

The US teams are AAU super teams mate, that is not a club it is a rep for a large region made of multiple capital cities and regions. It is a super team.

Yes, exactly for Buleen to make the International play off game against a selected Europe side (so yes the best 13/14 year olds from Europe) it is amazing. to go down by a few points, is incredible. They would have held up against the US girls also, probably not won of course but been competitive.

I do believe a team of Aussie/Kiwi/Filo etc best asian pac girls would mean more talent deep but possibly messy as not enough time to practise as a team

In the Xover game central beat Europe 68-38 so fairly one sided considering Europe beat Bulleen twice.
