DRAWS ANNOUNCED FOR UNDER-16 CHAMPIONSHIPS IN JULY

Just over a month out from the Under-16 Australian Junior Championships, the draws have been announced for the men's and women's competitions.

Hosted by Kilsyth Basketball Association from July 2-9, 14 teams will compete in both competitions across two pools with every state and territory in Australia represented as well as New Zealand.

The Vic Metro men will begin proceedings at 10am on Day 1 with a game against New Zealand immediately following the opening ceremony while QLD North, the 2015 men's Champions, will kick off their title defence against the ACT that afternoon.

For the women, last year's victors QLD South will begin their 2016 campaign against NT while Vic Metro, who have won 14 of the past 16 championships, will look to defend their home court against NSW Metro on Day 1.
