Double Gold for Australian Basketball in 2018 Commonwealth Games - May 8, 2018


POSTED BY:

Eurobasket's Articles

The year could not have gone better for Australian basketball abroad, as members of the national women's and men's team did the nation proud by claiming two golds at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. This is one of the greatest honours for a national team and the fact that this was a double top spot makes it all the more impressive. How did they pull it off - and what is in store for our champions now?

Opals Score Easy Win despite Ejection of Star Player Liza Cambage

The Gold Coast 2018 21st Commonwealth Games brought all-around glory to Australia, as our athletes managed to gather a total of 198 medals, 80 gold, 59 silver and 59 bronze, securing first overall place and leaving England behind with 136 (45 gold) and India third at 66 (26 gold). The start came with the women's team, who dominated against England, snatching a well-earned 99-55 victory. Before that, they had already defeated Mozambique by a 60-point margin, got past Canada scoring 39 points more than the team that won first place in the FIBA Americas Championship in 2015 and 2017, and sailed through England by a 63-point difference. They then consolidated their trajectory in the semi-finals by crushing New Zealand by 59 points. And then they smashed England, too.

The game began with a shocking twist, as Australia's star player Liz Cambage was ejected in the second quarter by an easily irritable referee who took offense at the player's frustration. Cambage was getting ready to shoot from the free throw line after a foul when she got a technical foul which she contested - apparently very vocally so. As she was forced to watch the rest of the finals from outside the court, the rest of the team quickly regrouped and were able to pull it off without her. Even at the time that she left, Australia was already leading with 30-17 - and Cambage had scored one-third of those points.

The Opals proved that, while they have a standout player in Cambage, they are all about teamwork, as Cayla George scored 16 points, 2 blocks and 10 rebounds, Kelsey Griffin matched her at 16 points and collected 8 rebounds, rising star Eziyoda Magbegor contributed 11 points and team veteran and captain Belinda Snell added 9 points in her last game for the national team, also furnishing back-to-back three-pointers to boost the Opals going into halftime at a 49-31 advantage. After getting into the final quarter leading by more than 30 points at 78-47, it was easy for the Opals to add a second Commonwealth Games gold to their 2006 gold in the Melbourne games.

The Boomers Dominate against Canada

The Boomers then took over to repeat the Opals' feat and win their second gold, as well. It is important to note that this is just the second time that the sport is featured in the Commonwealth Games and the last time it did, in 2006, both teams managed to snatch the gold, too. This time they smashed Canada 87-47 at the finals held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre on Sunday, April 15. The 40-point victory margin is proof enough that the Boomers were pretty much the uncontested bet for the gold.

Australian basketball is going through one of its best times recently, with many Aussies playing for NBA teams overseas: Ben Simmons is on the Philadelphia 76ers roster, Patty Mills shines for another year with the San Antonio Spurs, Matthew Dellavedova and Thon Maker play for the Milwaukee Bucks and Joe Ingles along with Dante Exum for Utah Jazz - all teams that made it to the NBA playoffs this year - while star Aron Baynes is regularly a starter with the Boston Celtics, the team currently featuring sixth in odds to win the NBA championship, priced at 33/1 in odds with Betway. According to The Guardian, Australian basketball legend Andrew Gaze credits this as inspiration for the Boomers and their wins.

Having established a 45-19 difference at halftime and led by Chris Goulding, Nathan Sobey and Nicholas Kay, the Boomers dominated against Canada's young roster. But Australia has their fair share of fresh talent, too. With young players like Kay already shining on the national team's roster, there is no telling what the team will be able to pull off in the upcoming FIBA tournaments.

Should American Players Go To Australia Instead Of College? - 3 days ago
There has long been a debate in the sports world about what young players should be allowed to do to advance their prospective careers. Some believe that they should be able to go straight to the NBA from high school, and some think they should have to wait a year or more before going pro. But, while the current rules prohibit players from joining the NBA without at least a year of experience elsewhere, shouldn't players looking to wait one year before joining the league consider playing...   [read more]
