Boomers coaches named for Feb qualifiers
Boomers Olympic Coach Brian Goorjian will hand the reigns of Head Coach to Rob Beveridge for the qualifier as he believes he is the right fit for the team."reigns"...
Rob will be joined by Mike Kelly (Wildcats Assistant Coach) and Robbie McKinlay (Head Coach at the Centre of Excellence) who have a deep understanding of the suitability of a highly talented pool of athletes in particular those that have previously played internationally for Australia. Completing the coaching team will be Australian Shawn Dennis, currently Head Coach of the Shiga Lakestars in the Japanese B. League.
For previous FIBA qualifiers the NBL have applied a weekend "bye for the league" however the re-scheduling of so many games due to COVID has made this option unviable for February. The NBL are working closely with Basketball Australia to ensure we have the best representation of players in Japan.
