The Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) is gearing up to welcome some of the country’s best young basketballers this Easter long-weekend at an intense two-day Combine presented by Mitchell & Ness.

An estimated 80 participants will take part in the combine including returning US college players, SEABL players, state league players, National U18 and U20’s representatives as well as invitees from the BA Centre of Excellence.
