Victoria Police lay charges against Mitch Creek

The NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix are aware that Victoria Police have laid charges against Mitch Creek in respect of alleged assault offences.

The NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix are deeply concerned by the nature of the charges against Mitch Creek and take this matter extremely seriously.

The NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix have held urgent discussions with the Australian Basketball Players' Association and Basketball Australia’s Integrity Unit in respect of the allegations.

The NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix also understand that Mitch Creek denies each of the charges and will deal with the matter appropriately through the court process.

As the body responsible for enforcing the national integrity framework which covers NBL players, Basketball Australia’s Integrity Unit has undertaken a preliminary investigation into the matter.

The NBL, South East Melbourne Phoenix and Mitch Creek have all agreed that he will not train or play with the Club until further notice.

As the matter is before the courts, the NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix will not make any further comment for now.

I certainly hope this is a big misunderstanding and not another Rice jr type deal

"One of Australia's top basketballers, Mitch Creek, has been charged by police with intentionally causing injury and other offences after allegedly assaulting a woman at her Melbourne home.


Mr Creek, 28, had been charged on summons with intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury and unlawful assault over an incident in Melbourne’s western suburbs on November 22 last year.


The charges follow a four-month investigation after a woman in her 20s suffered serious facial injuries. Mr Creek is due to appear before Sunshine Magistrates Court on April 1.

The NBL said on Monday that the league, the Phoenix and Mr Creek had agreed that he would not train or play with his club until further notice, while Basketball Australia investigates the incident."
