2017 Big V Origin All Star Series Players Announced


Melbourne, Victoria - Big V Basketball have announced this week the second annual Origin All Star Series Women’s and Men's teams, whom will compete against each other on June 10 2017 at the newly developed Casey Indoor Leisure Centre at 6pm and 8pm AEST respectively.

The two teams, Metro and Country, represent the origins in which players were born within Victoria, or named as a member of the Country team if born Interstate.

These select players were chosen by a competition panel who identified and invited these outstanding individuals to take part in the yearly event. In addition, Associations were asked to nominate players before the selection panel was formed to appropriately select the best teams to reflect the competition.

Big V CEO Julie Anderson was overwhelmed with the positive response from players within the league and the result of the two teams.

“Our four selected men’s and women's teams reflect the strength and diversity of the Big V as a whole,” Anderson explained.

“Seeing credible youth league and senior players wanting to represent their Origin, some for the second time, is a credit to their dedication and motivation. I can easily say that this talented group will wow the Casey faithful.”

Tickets are currently on sale via the following link and can also be found via the Big V website: https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=269677
