AWARDS:
MOST VALUABLE PLAYER:
Jason Smith (194-G-74)
A lot of players deserved this awards but Jason Smith led Australia in scoring, including a 16-point effort in the Gold medal. So we gave the award to the best player of the best team.

ALL-TOURNAMENT FIRST-TEAM:
Jason Smith (194-G-74) AUS 15.8pts 2.4rbs 1.0ast
Sam Mackinnon (197-F/G-76) AUS 12.6pts 7.6rbs 3.2ast

Muoneke Gabe (200-F-78) NIG 18.8pts 5.6rbs 0.4ast
Jason Smith carried his team in the money time of the Gold medal game, Sam Mackinnon was the best all-around player of the tournament in a limitted playing time, Pero Cameron was back to his 2002-World Championships form and almost lift New Zealand to the Gold, Andrew Sullivan was the leader of a great England squad and was the best inside player of the tournament, Muoneke Gabe was most consistent part of the Nigeria's Big-Three.

ALL-TOURNAMENT SECOND-TEAM:
Brad Newley (199-G-85) AUS 13.0pts 2.6rbs 2.4ast
Aaron Olson (195-G-78) NZ 14.4pts 2.6rbs 2.8ast
Ejike Ugboaja (204-F/C-85) NIG 15.4pts 9.8rbs 0.4ast
Dean Browne (206-F/C-80) BAR 13.4pts 8.6rbs 0.2ast
Calvin Jnr Bruton (188-G-75) AUS 8.0pts 2.2rbs 6.0ast
Brad Newley did pretty well in his first international tournament despite playing injuried in the last two games, Aaron Olson was a great outside force for the Tall-Blacks, Ejike Ugboaja was great during four games but he was disapointing in the Bronze medal game, Dean Browne really was a cornerstone for Barbados, Calvin Jnr Bruton run a very deep australian team and was the tournament's leader in assists.

ALL-TOURNAMENT THIRD-TEAM:
Paul Henare (182-G-79) NZ 8.4pts 4.2rbs 6.0ast
Mark Worthington (201-F-83.) AUS 10.8pts 1.8rbs 1.6ast

Dan Wardrope (188-G-78) SCO 20.0pts 2.8rbs 2.4ast
Paul Henare has a Bruton-like tournament without the Gold medal, Mark Worthington averaged in double-figures in first international tournament, Germayne Forbes was a solid second option for England and a pretty good defender, Abdulrahman Mohammed was great during the first four games but he completely missed the Bronze medal game, Dan Wardrope was the tournament's scoring leader in a pretty weak scottish team.

   Australia won the Gold in a tough game Mar. 24, 2006
In true trans-Tasman rivalry, the gold medal playoff in the Men’s Basketball between Australia and New Zealand went right down to the wire - with Australia taking top honours in the final minutes. In one of the most thrilling basketball matches in Australian history, the Boomers played the game of their lives, bringing the crowd to its feet to cheer the gold medal. We will post the stats leaders and a tournament recap in the next days.
Gold Medal Game:
Australia - New Zealand: 81-76
The crowd was more than paying attention as the final term started and Mark Worthington got the home team back within one (65-66) with a tough fading jumper from beyond the three-point line. The noise from the crowd was deafening as Tony Rampton missed two important free throws and then New Zealand found themselves in foul trouble with half the quarter to play. Australia took full advantage, finding themselves at the line 16 times in the final quarter, adding nine points from the charity stripe. With more composure, the Australians used the excitement of their fans to help them home by five points. Yougster Luke Kendall (193-G-81) was the team's leading scorer with 17pts from the bench, Sam Mackinnon (197-F/G-76) recorded 16pts 4/6FG 9rbs, Jason Smith (194-G-74) scored 16pts and Mark Worthington (201-F-83) added 14pts. Pero Cameron (199-F/C-74) was the game's best scorer with 22pts 8/17FG 6rbs, Aaron Olson (195-G-78) scored 13pts, Paul Henare (182-G-79) added 11pts and Casey Frank (205-F-77) chipped in with 10pts.
“This tournament will go down in history for Australian basketball,” head coach Brian Goorjian said. “We would never have guessed at how much this would mean to us and to basketball in Australia – the pressure was huge. After watching the Opals win last night, we knew we were all doing something positive for the game in this country. We know coming in that New Zealand was the team that would cause us problems. They know us well and knew we had a new team - they exposed that tonight. But it was our experienced guys that brought it home – Jason Smith, Sam Mackinnon, Tony Ronaldson and CJ Bruton.”
“To play in the Commonwealth Games is excitement enough (to get you over the line),” Australian co-captain CJ Bruton said. “But to play in an atmosphere like this, to be down… wow. Australia never quits.”
"This feels like the biggest disappointment of my life because it is the freshest," said NZ coach Baldwin. "I'm so hurt for the guys because they gave it so much. This is a really good Australian team, but our guys played really well tonight. They played tough, hard-nosed New Zealand basketball ... it's just so disappointing."
"I don't think the home crowd really affected us," he added. "It maybe helped them a couple of times when we got a little bit ahead, but they would rally and the crowd came into it. But I think their players did the job, not the crowd. They were just tougher when it counted. I guess, on critical possessions, they executed better than we did ... they hit some big shots, we didn't."

   England takes the Bronze - Mar. 24, 2006 


John Amaechi


Just like the ladies did yesterday, England Men National Team claimed the Bronze medal in the Commonwealth Games against Nigeria 80-57, despite playing without its best player Andrew Sullivan (203-F-80, college: Villanova).
Bronze medal game:
England - Nigeria: 80-57
The first quarter was a nail-bitting contest and the score was 15-15 after 10 minutes but England dominated the second stanza and reached the break on a 18-point lead. The english players never looked back and Nigeria was unable to come back. Without Andrew Sullivan, Robert Reed (210-F/C-80, college: Rider) led his side with 16pts 7/11FG, Germayne Forbes added 11pts 5rbs and 5ast while veteran John Amaechi (207-C-71, college: Penn St.) recorded 7pts and 8rbs in his last game with the NT. That's a pretty disapointing result for Nigeria, Muoneke Gabe (200-F-78, college: Texas) was the only one able to get anything done in this game with 19pts 7/15FG and 8rbs, Abdulrahman Mohammed only scored 4pts 1/11FG and Ejikue Ugboaja only 6pts and 5rbs.
"We wanted gold, then we wanted silver, and now we've got bronze," mused Reed, after the game.
"Obviously it was a disappointing result. If that's the best we can play, then we don't deserve to win." said Muoneke "It wasn't a good effort. We had way too many turnovers. We weren't on the same page and that would've been nice."

   Gold medal game - a boost for the australian NBL - Mar. 23, 2006 - by Eurobasket
The Gold medal game of the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne will be a pretty nice ad for the australian league, the NBL. Of the 24 athletes that will take the floor for the clash to decide the gold medal, 23 are either past or present players from the australian premiere league. 

Because the Games are taking place in March, none of the australians players in Europe or in USA were available, so the coaching staff decided to select a 100% NBL team and to use the Commonwealth Games to see which players could be named in the national team for the upcoming World Championships in Japan. New Zealand has the same kind of line-up since Phil Jones, Mark Dickel and co were unavailble due to club duties. Seven Tall Blacks were playing in the australian NBL this season, with the NZ Breakers, Wollongong or Perth. Four of them were playing in the NBL last season so Troy McLean (195-G-79) will be the only player without a NBL experience in the championship game.
The league is really develloping in Australia, there is already a franchise in New Zealand and next season there will be a 12th franchise in Singapore. This is an important step for the league as they want to increase the NBL's popularity in South East Asia. No matter which team is going to win the championship game, the NBL executives will be the winners.

   Classification games - Barbados claimed 5th place - Mar. 23, 2006 - by Eurobasket
The last classification games were played today in Melbourne, Barbados claimed the fifth spot over Scotland 73-63 and South Africa recorded its first win of the tournament against India 65-59 to take the 7th place. Tomorrow, Australia will play New Zealand for the Gold medal and Nigeria will face England for the Bronze.

5th place game:
Barbados - Scotland: 73-63
In a pleasant game, Barbados reached half-time on a 36-30 score. The islanders extended their lead to 13 in the third quarter, Scotland never let the game go but they were unable to come back closer than a double-digit deficit. Jeremy Gill (183-G-84) had a brilliant final game with 22pts 9/19FG 11rbs and 4st, Dean Browne recorded 14pts 6/10FG 12rbs and 3st while Kelvin Patterson posted 11pts 4/8FG and 8rbs. Dan Wardrope (188-G-78) was the game's leading scorer for Scotland with 26pts 8/20FG but he didn't get a lot of help from his teamates on the offensive end. Stuart Mackay recorded 9pts 4/7FG and 14rbs and Ross Campbell scored 7pts 1/6FG.

7th place game:
South Africa - India: 65-59
A last game for the two winless teams of the tournament and that wasn't really an offensive fiesta, South Africa shot for 30% and India shot for 36% but the south africans provided a better defense and dominated in the paint. Neo Mothiba (195-G/F-82) recorded a double-double with 25pts 8/19FG 10rbs, Nyakallo Nthuping also recorded a double-double with 10pts 3/16FG 10rbs and Vusumuzi Dlamini scored 10pts. Sozhasingarayer Robinson (203-F/C-80) led India with 23pts 11/17FG 7rbs, Kumar Shiv added 13pts 4/14FG and Qureshi Riyazuddin scored 10pts 3/6FG.
RSA Point guard Patrick Engelbrecht was confident the Games experience would serve to improve the standard of South African basketball.

"This is the highest level of Basketball our team has played, and we'll gain many great experiences,'' he said

   Semifinals - Australia and New Zealand to play for the Gold! - Mar. 22, 2006 - by Eurobasket
Like in the women tournament, the Commonwealth Game Men Championship Game will be a 100% Oceania contest. Australia defeated a consistent England team 101-75 in front of more than 9000 screaming fans in Melbourne while Aaron Olson (195-G-78, college: E.Washington) lifted New Zealand to the final game with a 90-66 victory over Nigeria.

Australia - England: 101-75
England managed to hold on during two quarter (50-46 at half-time) but Australia made the break in the third quarter in front of a noisy home crowd, more than 9000 fans packed the Melbourne Park Venue. The Boomers decided to stop the tournament's leading scorer Andrew Sullivan, he was held to 10pts 3/10FG and 3rbs only in this game. Jason Smith (194-G-74) led Australia with 18pts 6/8FG, Luke Kendall made his best game so far with 16pts 4/8FG and Sam Mackinnon recorded a double-double with 13pts 11rbs. Julius Joseph (192-F-75, college: Georgia Coll.) netted 18pts 5/13FG for England, Germayne Forbes added 17pts 4/15FG and 5rbs.
Australia's coach Brian Goorijan said after the match, "I think we beat a pretty good team, an experienced older side. It was a scary game for us. Everybody is expecting gold. I think the team did it really well. We delivered.''
Jason Smith spoke excitedly about playing in front of a home crowd. "As soon as we walked in there was this huge eruption. And after a couple of good shots they went crazy. It's great to be part of this," he said.
Kevin Kibbs, England’s team manager commented: "We knew we were facing strong opposition with Australia. They are one of the stronger nations in world basketball. We fought well in the first half. Australia is very experienced in these situations, it was pretty much our first time at this level and I think we have learnt a lot from these games. We now remain focused for Friday’s bronze medal game."

Nigeria - New Zealand: 66-90
New Zealand made a great first-half, they reached the break on a 50-33 lead on the wings of Aaron Olson (195-G-78, college: E.Washington) who scored 17pts and 4ast in this period, Pero Cameron was also great in the first half with 12pts. Nigeria was unable to come back mostly because of a desastrous 29% shooting from the field. Muoneke Gabe (200-F-78, college: Texas) scored 18pts 5/12FG, Ejike Ugboaja recorded 14pts 6/10FG and 10rbs and Mohammed Abdulrahman added 15pts 5/18FG. Aaron Olson made a great game with 25pts 8ast, Pero Cameron netted 18pts and Troy Mclean came out of the bench to score 9pts in 9 minutes.
"I'll take a 24-point win," offered NZ coach Tab Baldwin. "I don't think we were really good in the second half ... we didn't shoot the ball well in that second half. Our defence really won his the game. They had a stretch in the third quarter where they hit some threes and our defence let us down, but apart from that it was pretty good ..."
Now the Tall Blacks are ready to play against their longtime rivals australians: "Actually, I think the fact it's a gold medal game is secondary to us," Baldwin said. "The fact it's Australia will be primary."
