Aussie girls firing at WIBC


IT’S been a mixed bag for Australia’s teams competing at the World Indigenous Basketball Challenge in Vancouver but our girls have been firing.

Renai Fejo has averaged 15ppg, Talisia Bourne 14.7 and Marleigh Zada 11 as the Australia Indigenous Djookyaans (Sisters) Team compiled a 2-1 win-loss record, beating Heiltsuk Nation 59-50, dropping its second game 52-71 to hišuukiš cawak Vancouver Island before stopping Plains Lady Warriors 77-56.

The Maal-Ya Indigenous Women's Team also has gone 2-1, losing their opener 45-52 to Team Vancouver (All My Relations) before beating Vancouver Strathcona 64-58 and Heiltsuk Nation 83-65.

Rohanee Cox has led the way with 22.7ppg, ably supported by Georgia Baldwin’s 12.7ppg.

The men have not fared quite as successfully but have surely shored up their chances of retaining the championship later this year in their annual Trans-Tasman Series against New Zealand's Maori National Team.

Beaten 72-69 by Vancouver, our Australian Indigenous All Stars bounced back to beat Team Bantu Zambia 90-77, before going down 68-79 to ITA Native Sports.

Deba George (below) and Curt Ah Wang have continued to shine, averaging 24.0ppg and 14.3ppg respectively for the Apunipima Australian Indigenous All Stars.
