Southern Districts Basketball Association
Basketball Queensland congratulates Southern Districts Basketball Association on winning the Vince Hickey Award for overall points in the 2013 State Championships. Southern Districts have made it a three-peat after being crowned Champion Association in both 2011 and 2012. This year Southern Districts was also awarded the Harold Peacock Shield for the best performing junior association in the South East-Queensland representative competition and are to be congratulated on their efforts.
In taking out the award Southern Districts bagged medals in five out of the eight Division 1 Competitions including 3 State Championship titles. Whilst there were good performances by all of their division 1 teams (7 out of 8 teams finished top 4), it was their U16 and U18 team performances that saw them run away with the title with their nearest opponent, Townsville being 14 points behind. The U16 Boys, U16 Girls and U18 Girls all finished with a gold medal and Championship title, while the U12 Boys and U14 Girls both took home silver.
Congratulations must also go to Townsville and Brisbane who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively, marking the same top 3 as last year. Whilst Associations who vastly improved on their overall rankings from last year that deserve a special mention are; Cairns who dominated the younger age groups and moved from 7th to 4th, South West Metro 10th to 7th, Sunshine Coast 17th to 14th and Noosa 20th to 17th.
