High school players in the ANBL

Just wondering if there are any high schools in NZ or Australia that can match the number of players from NZ Auckland high school Westlake Boys. They currently have at least 6 players 4 at Breakers, 1 at SEM and 1 at Cairns

I know Rhys Vague went through Willetton, I'm sure plenty of WA based juniors did too.

Townsville High School would have a fair few players who have played in the NBL at one stage or another over the years

Many of the large, well funded private schools claim talented players when they achieve selection/honors, as if the school was primarily responsible for their development and success. We see such references in this thread. In some cases - this may be true. But too often, the private schools are recruiting talent that has already been developed, usually by poorly paid coaches in regional clubs. Shout out to them and to the cause of regional basketball.

Seems in Aussie the majority of development is done by clubs where as in NZ its school base

Correct, it is associated based. High school is irrelevant here. However even kids get poached and move clubs nowadays so hard to point to who actually developed them.

Well said red84.

I thought this was going to be about how many high school players make the NBL and current ones etc... that would have been a fun topic too

Have always thought the NBL need to do a better job in promoting where a player is from. Like in AFL when a Joe Smith is drafted from Calder Cannons, or in the NBA, Michael Jordan from North Carolina.

Although I admit it would be hard to pinpoint places considering the club hopping done nowadays.

I wonder if its difficult to have an Aus equivalent of the 'Westlake Boys/2000s basketball' piece because of the AIS. Top sporting prospects would not be attending their local high school - they'd be brought into the AIS fold.

What age do the players go to the AIS and is there any schools that have their students consistently being awarded scholarships to attend the AIS. The connection with AIS and Westlake is strong Mark Jackson who set up the program at Westlake based a lot of the school basketball curriculum around the Institutes programs
