An investigation was conducted into an incident that occurred during a scrimmage between the Opals and Nigeria on the 13th of July 2021 in Las Vegas involving Elizabeth Cambage. 

Following the investigation, the matter was referred to an Independent Hearing Panel to determine whether, under the National Framework for Ethical Behaviour and Integrity in Basketball, Elizabeth Cambage engaged in Prohibited Conduct.

The Independent Hearing was held on the 29th of October 2021. The panel after examination of the evidence before it, determined that Elizabeth Cambage did engage in conduct that brought Basketball Australia into censure in relation to one of the incidents charged. Charges in relation to the other three alleged incidents were dismissed. The Independent Hearing Panel has issued her with a formal reprimand.

The matter is now finalised from both Basketball Australia’s and Ms Cambage’s perspective and neither party intends to appeal the Hearing Panel’s determination.
