The Boomers finished off their 2009 international season by winning the prestigious tournament and you can follow each of their games on Wednesday nights on FOXSports over the next four weeks.
With all four teams from the tournament competing at the 2010 FIBA World Championship, the Stankovic Cup serves as a preview of how Australia could fare against the same nations in August next year.
The Boomers’ Stankovic Cup team featured members of the FIBA Oceania Championship team including AJ Ogilvy and 19-year-old former Australian U19 captain Matthew Dellavedova, as well as Oscar Forman, James Harvey, and Damian Martin alongside fellow NBL players Townsville McDonald’s Crocodiles’ Peter Crawford, Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers’ Jacob Holmes, and Perth Wildcats’ Stephen Weigh.
Three debutantes were among the team including University of Connecticut forward Ater Majok, 17-year-old star Hugh Greenwood, and former Sydney Spirit forward Liam Rush.
