The Brisbane Spartans’ injury list has grown once again during losses to Geelong and Frankston in Victoria on the weekend.

Point guard Heath Gameren dislocated his elbow against Geelong on Friday night while shooter Scott Kenny injured his knee against Frankston on Saturday.

Despite the injuries, Brisbane put in a gutsy effort as they almost took down Eastern Conference rivals the Frankston Blues – eventually losing 72-6.

On Friday night against the Geelong Supercats, the Spartans let a double-digit lead slip through their hands to lose 79-60.

Dean Brebner had another good weekend for the Spartans, recording 16 points against Geelong and 18 against Frankston.

After a disappointing 75-49 loss to Geelong on Friday night, the Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartans recovered to beat Frankston 65-60 and split the Victorian road trip.

Holly Smith and Rachel Pryor were once again the standouts for the Lady Spartans.

Both teams return home to take on Canberra on Saturday night. The women tip-off at 5.30pm, with the men’s game starting at 7.15pm.

Lady Spartans release Thomas

The Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartans have released import Tatianna Thomas this week as they look to give local players a greater role within the team structure.
“We needed to start focusing on 2013 and Thomas was not in our future plans” offered general manager, Allan Ladewig.
“Tat is a nice person but her seasons statistics are way below what we expected from a foreign player. Coaching staff had spoken with her about becoming more of a focus within the team but as the season progressed it was obvious to all that she did not have the skills needed”.
The 2012 season has been a horror season for both teams with injuries on a weekly basis. On Saturday when the teams played Canberra, on the sidelines, watching the game were 10 players sitting out with another four playing through injury to keep the hopes alive of making the playoffs.
The Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartans are currently two games out of the top four, hoping Rebecca Schatz will be able to return from injury this week when they play on Friday and Saturday night in must win games.
The Clem Jones Spartans are also two games out of the top four and must win both games this Friday and Saturday to have any chance of playing in the finals in 2012.
Head men’s coach Rob Scheibner when questioned about where the season had gone offered. “At start of the season we had the team and we definitely had the desire to win the competition but for any team to lose four out of five starters it is a tough road”.
“The exciting thing for the club is that our juniors are taking advantage of the opportunities that the injuries are creating, through court time and will be much better in 2013. Playing in the toughest league in Australia outside the NBL is never easy but one we play in with pride as we represent Queensland”.
Nikki Bairstow, responding to the same questions about the Lady Spartans. “Losing Morgan Pink at season start was not a good way to start, followed by Shona O’Bree and Rebecca Schatz for more than half the season. Other injuries to other players became weekly events but it has given our juniors the chance to show their skills and they have done exceptionally well”.
“We are already looking at who is available for 2013 and the type of players we will need to return the program back to the winners circle. The management have been great and the senior players supportive. This is a proud club and failure is not accepted. We will get it done, whatever it takes”.

Southern Districts 2013 Junior Representative Coaching Staff

The 2013 season is looking great and may even surpass the past two years, in achievements, where the junior Spartans have won the Vince Hickey Award for being Queensland’s most successful junior program.

Southern Districts Basketball Association has dominated the junior age groups in Queensland in recent years and always looks to have the best coaching staff possible. The 2013 staff will be no exception.

“As the main feeder program to the Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartans and the Clem Jones Centre Brisbane Spartans, which both compete in Australia’s premier winter basketball league the South East Australian Basketball League, we must ensure our juniors are the best” offered Allan Ladewig, SDBAL General Manager.

“We have, I believe, Queensland’s best developers of basketball players in the likes of Steve Lennon, Lavinia Taylor, Tony Stephens, Ray Axam and Rob Scheibner and this year they are to be joined by experienced senior male coaches Vern Robateau, Michael Vandongen and Danny Page. Add to this Mary McKenna, one of the greatest basics teachers in our sport and Nathan Drakopoulos we can only improve. All this under the eye of Dean Brebner, our new Development Director. Things could not be looking better”.

Trials for the representative teams will start after the school holidays end and will be posted on the website www.sdspartans.basketball.net.au

In 2013 the Spartans are looking to field a record 22 teams within the Basketball Queensland organised competitions which run from September until March 2013 where teams then nominate for the State Championships over Easter and May Day.

It's a shame they lost Dylan, he was very well liked within the club and all the players loved to be coached by him and word is people want to go where ever he has gone to get that chance.

Pretty sure anyone who wants to go will be cleared no questions asked. Not heard of anyone moving at this stage but BQJBC is over a month away so who knows.
Think you may find traffic to the dark side will be greater then traffic leaving.
Once everyone realises that to play in ABL (new SEABL managed by BA) you need to join the Spartans in junior ranks to get a nod unless you are a serious talented player that traffic will only increase.

Spartans go down

BASKETBALL: The Brisbane Spartans season is all but over after two heartbreaking losses to Hobart and Dandenong at home on the weekend.

On Friday night, the Spartans took on the in form Hobart Chargers but it was the home side whose offence finally clicked into gear and after a 32-22 second quarter, Brisbane led 51-44 at the half.

But Chargers import Jordan Gregg shot the lights out to lead his team’s comeback while the Spartans faltered and Hobart took a 73-66 advantage into the final term. From there, the Spartans were unable to wrestle the game back and went down 93-82.

Marques Whippy and Thomas Ammar both scored 19 points for the Spartans.

After a disappointing loss the previous night, Brisbane clashed with the Dandenong Rangers who were equal top of the East Conference ladder with Geelong.

The Spartan defence did not allow the Rangers to get any offensive flow but the home side’s offence was also unable to get going. Despite being a tight game all the way, Brisbane led by four points with two and a half minutes remaining.

A foot violation went against the Spartans which resulted in a Dandenong lay up which started a run for the away side who stunned the home crowd and recorded a 76-73 victory.

Dean Brebner scored 18 points while import Marques Whippy recorded 16 points, 13 rebounds and five assists.

Despite going down in both games on the weekend, Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartan Ashley Taia had breakout games after she recorded 14 points and 11 rebounds against Hobart and 15 points against Dandenong.

Both Spartans teams travel to Melbourne this weekend to play Kilsyth and Ballarat.

I wonder if they publish the crowd numbers at SEABL games.

I saw a few photos from the weekend and there looked to be about 20 people at the games. They were probably family and officials!!!!

Those guys for spartans who play dleague and seabl would be better than most of the players in dleague and they havent played every game in dleague due to seabl commitments. DOubt most of the other players in dleague could play seabl... Plus it shows with Spartans that locals get a chance.

BDS Logan Thunder
Media Release

Tuesday 31 July 2012
………………………………………….

Spartans trio selected in Logan Thunder WNBL Player Pathways Academy

THREE Brisbane Spartans players are one step closer to reaching the country’s top league after they were named in the BDS Logan Thunder’s WNBL Player Pathways Academy.

Morgan Pink, Rachel Pryor and Ash Taia were selected from 25 of the state’s most promising young talents who were invited to trial for a spot in the club’s inaugural program.

Selection was based on both basketball and non-basketball specific criteria and while ability was important, Academy Director Tony Stephens said those selected possess rare characteristics.

“The first six items of the criteria were not basketball specific,” he said.

“They’re about attitude, desire, teamwork and commitment. It’s really hard to teach these things at the WNBL level and these attributes are essential if they are going to compete professionally.”

The academy will open the door of opportunity for the rising Lady Spartans stars.

“It’s a unique opportunity,” Stephens said.

“They will receive individualised training programs and high caliber coaching and they will be exposed to playing at the top level through exhibition games and training camps. They will also experience the off-court aspects of being a professional athlete.

He added: “The basketball side of things is only one part of it. Obviously you have to be able to play but it’s all the other little things that come with it that they have to realise they need to be good at to reach the next level.

“Even those who weren’t selected will receive ongoing support and will be advised of areas they can improve on for their own personal development,” he said.

BDS Logan Thunder General Manager Phil Binder welcomed the girls into the squad.

“We’re very excited to bring the girls on board under the Logan Thunder banner,” Binder said.

“It’s very rewarding to be in a position where we able to provide a pathway into professional basketball for young females in Queensland and it is a positive sign that the club is moving forward and growing.

“The benefit for us is that it gives us opportunity to select from some of the best emerging young talent coming through the ranks.

“The interest that has come out of this has been unbelievable, which to me is an indication of just how much this sort of program has been needed,” he said.

The trio are expected to feature in an exhibition game against Alabama’s Auburn University on August 7 at Brisbane Basketball’s NAB Stadium, Auchenflower.
