REPLAYS: Day 1 of Basketball Qld u18 State Champs
The battle for the first trophy of the year tips-off today as some of Australia's rising stars take to the Gold Coast for the Basketball Queensland Under-18 State Championships today.
And the first day of our livestream of the tournament is all about the home teams with both the Gold Coast Waves boys and girls division one teams featuring twice on the showcourt at the Gold Coast Leisure and Sports Complex.
It will be a chance for the Waves teams to show their championship credentials with the girls going into the tournament as favourites after finishing the first half of the SQJBC competition undefeated while the boys are also title contenders after an impressive season to date.
The Waves girls also come into the tournament having won every state championship for this age group since under-12s with the group also claiming a National Club Championship along the way.
Day one also features several key clashes in the division two tournament.
