Basketballers reach nationals

August 14, 2014 by Brenton Stacey

But results at Eastern University Games mixed

Avondale men's basketball team

Men’s basketball joins men’s touch football as automatic qualifiers for the nationals after strong showings at the Eastern University Games in Newcastle July 7-10. The former finished fifth—down from fourth in 2013—but qualified because three other teams had already done so. The latter went one better than this past year by winning bronze, although expectations were higher—the team, gold medal winners in division two at the most recent Australian University Games, led 4-0 in its semifinal before losing 5-4.
