Maccabi Basketball Club News


Maccabi Warriors had their first game in the Youth League this week against Corio Bay Stingrays. While the game ended with a loss, it demonstrated a significant jump in talent from last season. This was also recognised by big V commentators, stating 'the warriors look to be in much better form than last year.... (They) didn't stop trying to cut down the margin at every opportunity'. This was an impressive start from the youth team who are expecting big things for the season.
