Live stream: Basketball Australia U20s and Ivor Burge National Championships

The best young ballers in South Australia have been thinking about this moment for 12 months.

It has been a year of heartache, pain and many what ifs.

But after winning two silver medals at last year’s Basketball Australia Under 20 and Ivor Burge National Championships, finally the shooters from the south have a chance to go one better.

KommunityTV will exclusively LIVE STREAM every match from the national championships in Geelong, the first of five major Basketball Australia pathways events to be streamed in 2023.


South Australia will again be one of the frontrunners at a tournament that features teams from every state, as well as ACT and Northern Territory (boys only).

The boys competition will also be ignited by the inclusion of the best young athletes from the NBA Global Academy, who will test themselves against the impressive state sides.

South Australia are being widely tipped to take out the girls tournament following the inclusion of WNBL young gun Isobel Borlase in their squad.

Borlase, the daughter of 246-game Port Adelaide veteran Darryl Borlase and Aussie netballer Jenny Borlase, is one of the most exciting rising stars on the Adelaide Lightning WNBL roster.

But she is not the only WNBL contracted player at the Under-20 National Championships, with the Victorian ranks featuring Nyadiew Pouch (Southside Flyers), Sophie Burrows (Melbourne Boomers), Paige Burrows (Melbourne Boomers) and Dyani Ananiev (Bendigo Spirit).

The national championships will also feature the best athletes with an intellectual disability in the Ivor Burge Championships.

The Ivor Burge men’s and women’s divisions have been a welcomed addition to the tournament for several years, and produce highlight reels to rival the best NBL and WNBL clubs.

South Australia are the reigning Ivor Burge Men’s champions while Victoria took home the gold in the women’s competition last season.

The Ivor Burge Women’s competition will take on a new format in 2023, with teams competing in a 3×3 format to match the way the competition is played on the international stage.
