BASKETBALL AUSTRALIA STATEMENT

Basketball Australia has received notice from FIBA of disciplinary proceedings following last Monday’s FIBA World Cup Qualifier between Australia and the Philippines.

FIBA has established a Disciplinary Panel to hear charges against the Boomers arising from the game in Manila.

FIBA has placed confidentiality conditions on the details of the charges which prevents their public disclosure.

Basketball Australia Chief Executive Anthony Moore said it would respond to the charges ahead of a determination by the Panel.

“Out of respect for the process established by FIBA, Basketball Australia and our players will not make any further comment at this stage,” he said.
