Mel Young Memorial Basketball Tournament 2020

Due to the determination of our very hard working basketball committee, we are delighted to be hosting 7 of the very best North Island Colleges at our Mel Young Memorial Tournament this week. With BBNZ Secondary Schools Nationals cancelled, and Auckland unable to travel, this BBNZ sanctioned tournament is showcasing the very best possible teams in the North Island. We have livestream options and its being broadcast on Sky SPort and Māori TV.

 

Come on down and watch the action - draw is below with the Grand Final scheduled at 11am in the Marcellin Gym on Friday 2nd October. Scroll further down to find tube links for streaming. Follow the St John's College BAsketball Facebook page to keep up to date with results and action.

Special thanks go to HBHS who are also playing hosts for this event.

The Mel Young Memorial Tournament honours a long serving and much loved teacher and coach, who was also a giant in the basketball world - not just in Hamilton, or even NZ, but internationally. Mel coached our champion 1996 basketball team to a National Championship, but importantly he mentored and developed thousands of young St John's men in his time with us. Mel died aged 67 in 2015. At his retirement function  Mel spoke of his life aims - " My aim has been to follow a Marist life". He was honoured by our Marist Brothers by being made an Affiliate Brother shortly before his death.
