Agree, SA metro women have 3 top line players and their 2 bigs are unplayable vs the top teams. Small ball is their best hope and they need Borlase to stay healthy.

Vic Metro - 1st
Vic Country / SE Queensland - 2nd or 3rd

NSW Metro / SA Metro - 4th or 5th

SA Country / NSW Country / North Queensland- 6th and lower

The rest

Combining 04 from 19' and 05 from 20’ chosen side, vic S5s will probably look like

Metro
5’9 Heal
5’9 Wickstrom
6’0 Burrows
6’2 Puoch
6’4 Ohara

Country
5’5 Loughridge
5’9 Granger
5’10 Koopmans
6’1 Ananiev

Please keep in mind the forum guidelines on naming U18 players. OK to name them in team lists as done so far, but please refrain from posting about individuals (whether positive or negative). Please report posts that contravene this. Thanks.

Why so many Sturt players in the 18Boys Metro? They just scraped into the finals on the back of Brennan and flopped, bombed in the State Champs, have never actually won anything.over the years
Hugely over rated and over hyped and they make up 50% of the team!
Surely there are better players out there?

You answered your own question, its because they are Sturt and the HP coach is Sturt

910, maybe because you are talking about last year's team, when these guys were all bottom agers? Completely irrelevant.

Sturt and Norwood are maybe the best two teams this season.

just depends where the best players are at the time - can recall some very good Forestville girls teams 5-8 years ago that made up 6 or 7 of the state u16 and 18s - and they did very well at the national level. North in the early 2000s had a high % of female state reps.

I think the U18 champs have a better than 50% chance of going ahead. The biggest threat arises from an individual state closing its border. Clearly if Vic does this - then - yeah - the champs are off. But if a state other than Vic decided to impose restrictions, then the champs could probably work around an absence and still stage the event.
One workaround fix could involve fielding a Vic Metro "B" side in place of a missing NSW, Qld, WA, SA or Tas team. This team would be more than competitive - in fact defeats they would inflict on other states could be embarrassing. But I'm all in favour of it.

I think if Vic metro put in a B team it would likely be rather embarrassing for the selectors. Given how badly they generally select their teams the B teams might well beat the A teams!

No Vic = no Nationals
In any age group, at any time.
Victoria is the heart and soul of basketball in Australia.
The rest of the country can say what they like, Victoria's results speak for themselves.
Every other state is playing for second place.

497 writes "Every other state is playing for second place". This is a case of trying to beat your opponent before the contest begins. I see it a bit differently. Imagine the pressure on those VicM players NOT to lose. And - conversely- the kudos earned by the interstate team that knocks off VicM. I'd rather play to win than play to avoid losing.

Sa metro girls u16 06/07 have 3 really great players. They could very well win the champs this year.

716, haha!

1 very good player from Forestville, decent guard from West and another decent forward from Sturt.

Need more than 3 players to win Nationals, Vic Metro have 10 good players year in, year out plus others that miss out all together!

Keep dreaming....

The Vic lists for SDP make for interesting reading purely on the numbers selected to be involved. Just looked at the girls lists with over 80 U18 Girls and well over 100 U16 Girls listed in these Vic SDPs. My home state of SA would be lucky to have 80 girls playing in each of the entire Div 1 comps for U18 and similar in U16 so every Div 1 player from all teams would make the SDP list if SA had the same sized SDPs. Just puts things in perspective a bit and shows how well some of the SA teams do to be competitive nationally.

Also shows 716's comments about '3 really great' U16 players and having a chance at Nationals to be really quite quite laughable from both a depth perspective and how you perceive "really great" talent in a national context. Good luck to those SA girls but not sure the evaluation is all that accurate in the bigger picture.

I have seen the talent in all states is why I can make judgement on who will do well at nationals.

The 06s in vic are not that strong.
I'd argue wa and qld have more talented 06s than vic in the girls. It may not show at u16s but will as they go up in the age groups.

The Vic SDP lists make even more interesting reading when you compare the kids that made those lists compared to kids from the same club who didn't. Frankston have a kid in NPP but they have another player who is just as good, if not better and she didn't make SDP (maybe because she hasn't chosen to go to Rowville, every kid at the trials who goes to Rowville made that list!). Knox's best top age u16 player is not there also, both these kids should be chances of Vic Metro. If Vic Metro don't toy with everybody it will be because of inept High performance Coaches and corrupt selection procedures, not talent.

5 of the 10 players per team at nationals play 75% of the minutes.
If you have 3-4 great players its enough to win the champs. It has happened many times before.

VicM has long enjoyed a dominant position because its administrators have done a better job over many, many years. The VicM comp is over twice the size of NSWM and 3 times the size of SAM. High quality venues. And they consistently produce the best coaches and run superior systems. This last point is key. If NSWM or SAM or QLD were to have any hope of knocking off VicM their coaches must run systems that are as well thought out, as well drilled and are well suited to the strengths of the playing group. Having seen many AJCs over the years i do not believe that a S5 VicM player is better than their counterparts in NSW, Qld or SA. But they are better drilled, particularly in defence, and they are much less likely to be hero ballers.
