The Waitakere Rangers are back. After a long 18 years, the West Auckland side is returning to the New Zealand National Basketball League. Waitakere Basketball made their move following the capitulation of both the Harbour Heat and defending champions Auckland Pirates, which sees both franchises out of the league indefinitely. Rangers head coach Aik HO says the timing is right for West Auckland basketball to rise again. Our goal has always been to go back to the NBL. We were looking at a return in 2014, but with both Auckland teams pulling out, we decided to go for it. The team will play all their home games at Trusts Stadium. The NBL want us to be in the league forever and the challenge is now ahead for us to make it affordable, Ho says. It certainly doesnt come more affordable when you players are in it for nothing, but the love of the game. The Rangers are the only team in the competition with a 100 per cent volunteer roster, including both players and coaches, with a strong mix of experience and youth to work with. Weve got a very low budget this year, but the fact that nobodys getting paid is where the appeal lies and hopefully the fans will see that too. Lucrative contracts in the NBL are rare and Rangers captain and guard HOUSTON O'REILLY has had a few modest offers from other clubs, but jumped at the chance to play for his hometown. The Massey resident was part of the Auckland Pirates who won the title last year, but had to look elsewhere after they folded for financial reasons. Im excited at being named captain. I used to watch the Rangers play when I was little and for the team to be back in the NBL is something Ive always wanted to see, OReilly says. But the squad are under no illusions about what theyre up against in their first year. Forward Duane Bailey (199-F-91) also joins the team from the Pirates and says the leadership roles need to be hitting their straps. Motivating the younger guys is going to be the key, but the ability and the belief in each other is there.
The team kick off their campaign against Southland on April 19, but Ho says round fours first home clash with Otago will be something special, as the team plays before their home fans.
