Over the break, Knox hosted the Sydney Kings and the Sydney Schools Basketball Shootout.
Sydney Schools Basketball Shootout
The Sydney Schools Basketball Shootout was held at Knox on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 October. Thirty-three schools participated in this huge event in the Great Hall and Lawson Centre.
Knox lost to Scots College in the semi-final by eight points, while the other semi-final was won by Sydney Boys High over St Augustine’s College. The final will be played next month as a curtain-raiser for an NBL game.
Sydney Kings Basketball Team
The Sydney Kings utilised the Knox Great Hall during the holidays by holding a three day pre-season camp.
The camp, the final hit out before the NBL season kicks off next week, was an opportunity for head coach Shane Heal, to see his entire playing roster run together in drills and scrimmage games.
