Australia basketball history
The Australia National Basketball Team made their debut on the international stage at the Games in Melbourne in the summer of 1956. While they ended up finishing in 12th position, the signs were there that basketball was growing into an increasingly popular sport in Australia. The founding of Australia's basketball league the NBL in 1979 led to further improvements as the quality of basketball in Australia improved. Now, as the quality of players being developed in Australia continues to improve, there are numerous Australian basketballers playing in the more competitive Euroleague in Europe or the USA's NBA. The Australia National Basketball Team, as well as having numerous honours to their name (including 1 Asia Cup and 12 Oceania Championship titles), also have several records which the team will hopefully be able to turn around. These include 14 appearances at the Summer Games without winning a medal and 11 Basketball World Cups without a medal. However, the boomers are looking to change all that.
