    Someone please let those of us without that coverage how it goes. It should be an interesting test of their basketball coverage.

    Keen observation. You try getting Spalding to custom make a game ball for your company's basketball tournament.

    Thanks, aa. Good interviews. I didn't know Lonnie Harrell was an And1 player. Sounds like he is a big trash talker so it's appropriate he's on Copeland's team.

    JR is obviously saving his material for his blog.

    No, because apparently they don't exist. A Major oversight by the organisers, I would have thought. I believe Boti has done a wrap-up of yesterday's games...try the Advertiser online.

    Such a pity. A great idea ruined by being half-arsed with the details.

    And quarter-arsed on the marketing.

    I would imagine that One would be paying attention to how well guys like Ronaldson and Rillie are coming across on camera. I'm hoping they snap up Rillie for their broadcast team if he is available. He's a real character, it comes across well on camera and appears to have a great rapport with a lot of the players.

    It's characters that the broadcast needs... anyone can be a stiff and just deliver stock standard material.

    it's do or die thursday for 4 teams.......... Expect some serious passion as these guys fight for their chance to grab about $15k each if they win it all. Day 3 has 2 do-or-die games, and 2 exhibition games.

    all game results and standings from Day 1+2 are up > http://www.hoopcity.com.au/eliteclassic.php

    Big crowds.

    Wouldn't this have been better suited to the Adelaide equivalent of MSAC (if such a thing exists) or actual MSAC, at least until finals?
    RIP Melbourne Tigers.
