Fiji will try to win another Gold medal after the 2002 title but this year in the FIBA Oceania Youth Tournament in Auckland, the road may be a little bit to hard for the fijians. Playing with pride and a lot of athleticism, Fiji will try to sneak between Australia and New Zealand to claim a medal.

Schedule:
Fiji - New Zealand on Oct 15
Fiji - New Caledonia on Oct 16
Fiji - Papua New Guinea Oct 17
Playoffs on Oct 19-21

Roster:
Andrew Paris
Douglas Compain (188-G-91)

Erwin Hussain
Isikeli Mara (202-C)

Jesoni Kuruyawa
John Miller
Josevata Buresole
Simione Seruvatu
Tul Sikivou
Villiame Moce

Preview:
There is a lot of talent in Fiji, some great coaches and great athletes but since the 2002 title, Fiji has been pretty disapointing in the FIBA Oceania events. The Marques Whippy generation is now to old to play in this tournament and the week in New Zealand would be interresting to evaluate the talent of the new youngsters in Fiji. Fiji is coming in New Zealand without the talented brothers Martin Liebregts (208-C-89) and Lyndon Liebgregts (194-G-91). The team could be a little short to compete against New Caledonia and Guam for the Bronze behind Australia and New Zealand.
Prevision: 5th

You can follow this tournament on our special "FIBA Youth Tournament 2006" page, we will post a recap of the team's games during this event in the days following the Gold medal. Stay tuned.
