The 2013 Down Under Sports Basketball Hoops Classic was run by the Gold Coast Regional Basketball Association. The tournament had an Olympic-style format with competition for gold, silver and bronze medals. The United States teams were mixed in with Australian teams and put into two pools. The tournament started on Friday night with two pool play games, Saturday morning continued with pool play throughout the day completing six to seven pool play games. Sunday had teams placed into a tournament bracket with continuation of play according to how they finished within their pool. In 2013, a USA girls’ team won the silver medal.
This is a great experience for everyone who participates. Each athlete learns a different style of play in Australia due to international (FIBA) rules making for a fast paced, up-tempo game. It is a great chance to meet Australian athletes and make friends by the end of the tournament!
