do australian universities offer basketball scholarships?

Hey guys,

My name is Rithvik Thammareddy. I am a 18-year-old basketball player from Hyderabad, India. I am finishing up with my highschool here , and just wanted to ask you guys if there are any legitimate australian universities that offer basketball scholarships to undergrad students.

Any answers would help.

Cheers.

I don't want to hear people complain about their home stadium needing an upgrade down under anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, South Adelaide Panthers new 2020 import. Coach Petty is excited to welcome Rithvik Thammareddy. "Rithvik is a step up in talent from Dakota Zinser from last season and opens the door with the growing market in India. Sponsorship is extremely important this yeas as we have to pay for a new pool for recruit Sam Johns."

Australian Universities all differ on the sporting scholarships they have. Most do take part in the Elite Athlete Pathway program, but this gives access to preferred timetables and extensions etc

It would be best to look at the Sport Scholarships via the University website. I doubt any would cover full tuition and living costs.

Your highlights video suggests you are a 50% free throw shooter. Incidentally, Australia's two most accomplished NBA players are only slightly above that mark.

Australian Universities have NOTHING to do with Australian Basketball , apart from a handful of irrelevant second rate player that are chasing some kind of glory, APART from sponsoring teams to coax DIMWITS into thinking they are involved in Sport. E.G. Failed Marketing ploy's by School's with cash strapped poorly managed WNBL clubs.

Just watched the highlights...
Is this guy kidding? You can see the standard of competition he's playing in is extremely low.
No offence, but he would struggle to get a game in some social leagues here let along a college gig (in the US).

Rithvik Thammareddy,

Ignore people being rude here. I think it's great that you've taken the initiative to ask.

Australian universities have nothing to do with our basketball pathways so the answer is no.

While the sport is growing in India, the coaching standards of the sport need to lift so that athletes like yourself are at skill level sufficient to compete internationally. If you are passionate about the game I would recomend you consider turning to coaching.
