There's lots of action on the court at the AU Basketball Club at the moment.
On Saturday 18 February, the men from the club took to the Bowden public courts for their first social event of the year. They held a free BBQ with soft drinks to entice those not playing to come as well, and it was a fantastic turnout for their first Saturday Social event. After adjusting to the rings and learning to compensate for the wind, there was some great basketball played, with some people getting even more into the spirit and throwing in some streetball moves. Overall, it was a big success and they hope to do it again soon!
Ten days later, the ladies of the club won their third premiership in three years for the club in the SABA Division 3 competition. This week, two of the men's teams have the opportunity to bring home some silverware as well.
The AUBC boys have followed the ladies lead, and last night (8 March) took home not one BUT two Premierships!The Division 4 boys had an easy win over Southern Tigers 49 to 29. While the Division 5 team had a close one against our cross town rivals, Uni SA. In the end, our boys came out on top winning 37 to 31.
