FEATURING the state icons of our game, the Basketball Victoria Wall of Fame is something to envy.
With names like Australian Boomers legend Andrew Gaze, Australian Opals icon Michele Timms, legendary wheelchair basketball pioneer Kevin Coombs and Victoria’s first basketball Olympian Peter Bumbers, it’s a list for our very best.
Since the Basketball Victoria Wall of Fame was started in 1990, induction to its illustrious club has been reserved for 36 of our state’s greatest players, coaches, referees and administrators.
The next to join the Wall of Fame will have earned this accolade through decades of tireless work on and off the court and embodying the noble spirit of our game throughout Victoria and beyond.
This is the ultimate honour we can bestow upon Victorian basketball greats as our next batch of Wall of Fame invitees will be announced on Saturday 3 March at the Basketball Victoria Awards Night.
We will induct three new members to our Wall of Fame at this night…. and they are:
- An NBL veteran who represented Australia at the Olympic Games.
- A female Olympic Games medallist and WNBL icon.
- An Olympian and elite coach.
The Wall of Fame celebration is part of our BV Awards Night celebrations where we highlight and congratulate the best of the best in Victorian basketball for the previous year.
Awards include the Betty Watson Medal for the best Victorian female player and the Alan Hughes Medal for Victoria’s best senior male player of the year.
