Basketball News


In February, Coonabarabran was host to a Boys and Girls Basketball Gala Day; teams from Narrabri, Coonamble, Lightning Ridge and Walgett all took the long journey for their chance to advance to the next rounds.

Congratulations to our Boys’ Basketball team on making it through to the next round of the NW Basketball knock out. The boys played an amazing game against Lightning Ridge, who were just not up to the challenge. Our boys worked together as a team beautifully; making great passes, fast breaks and shut down Lightning Ridge with strong defence. Good luck in the next round boys!

The Girls’ Basketball team played one of the best games of basketball they have played to date; their game against Coonamble was tightly contested with a score of 16 all, at three quarter time. Unfortunately, the end result fell Coonamble’s way but that doesn’t take away from the quality ball displayed by our girls. The girls are keen to have another shot at Coonamble at Single Cup.
