Orange's future basketball stars on show

THE future stars of the Orange Basketball Association hoops will be on show tomorrow afternoon.

Set to contest the junior OBA summer league grand finals, the CHS Boys and the PCYC Redstar 2 will face off in the division one decider.

Traditionally a physical and fast encounter, Andrew and Matt Gray lead the CHS Boys alongside the Baker brothers - Lachlan and Luke - against a representative-laden PCYC Redstar team with a large Sudanese influence.

HAWRY and the PCYC Redstar 1 clash in the division two grand final.

Kuol Deng, Akok Dut and Majok Majok are a force for Redstars and Lachie Brunner, Lindsay Hartnig and Liam Taylorwood-Roe will lead the way for team HAWRY.

Division three will be fought out between the Bulls and the KWS Celtics. 

Leading the charge for the Bulls will be Clary Annis-Brown, Nathan Lynch and Cooper Tarleton, but they’ll be pushed be the KWS Celtics’ tall timber, with the height of Matt Bromage and Jack Bush coupled with the relentless defence of Chris Wood and Harry Brunner giving their side a slight advantage.

In other lower divisions, the CHS Cubs and the Skybreakers clash in division four, the Millthorpe Raptors and the Green Machine (1) go head-to-head for the primary title and the under 14s and under 16s girls’ representative sides will play off for the OBA junior girls’ title.

A Learn to Play session for the OBA’s youngest players will also be held.

Junior grand finals begin at 4.30pm at Anzac Park.

Nominations for the OBA’s winter season  close on April 11.

From Learn to Play and Mini-ball to the junior and senior divisions, men and women, the OBA is looking for any player wishing to play basketball this winter.
