From 22 to 24 September 2011 I was lucky enough to attend the Sunshine State Challenge NBL Basketball Pre-season Tournament, held at the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The impressive and well coached Perth Wildcats beat the much improved Sydney Kings in the final. Here are some pics:
