The Solomon Islands Basketball Federation has finalized the extended National Squad from which the team to represent Solomon Islands at next years South Pacific Games will be selected. The head coaching position was also finalized with Eric Matangi appointed for the position of Women's National Coach.

23 athletes have been selected. All but one players are currently playing in the HBA Super 4. Seven players are coming from Andel and Sunrise, 5 are coming from LR Sosa and 3 of them are playing for Roberta Roses. The only overseas player selected is Lisa Wini from the South Pacific University. National Squad training sessions are expected to start early January, allowing athletes enough time to prepare themselves for what will be highly intense and competitive trainings designed to achieve the best out of each individual. All squad members are urged to attend with a high level of fitness and an attitude of team play.
"The selection process really was a huge effort from all involved over the last 2 months, and was made even more difficult by the number of talented basketball players in the country" said SIBF President Freda Matangi after the meeting. "We initially wanted to keep the squad to 20 athletes, however it was just not possible with the high standard of players that have developed over the past few years."
