3x3 basketball medal for PNG?

PNG will have a good chance at taking out a medal in the 3 on 3 basketball code that will be played at the Mini Pacific Games in Vanuatu in December.

Riding off their win from the recently concluded Melanesian basketball championships, the PNG men and women’s teams are set for the challenge.

The Pacific Games Council delightedly announced the inclusion of 3×3 Basketball for the upcoming Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu; there is no doubt that this exciting new format will be a big hit in the Pacific and at the Games in December, stated Pacific Games Council CEO Andrew Minogue.

The athletes will be housed in five schools in Port Vila – INTV, Lycee Louis Antoine de Bouganville, Ecole d’Anabrou Fres Wota Bilingual School and Central School.

PNG will be sending a contingent to Vanuatu to defend most of their titles won at the Pacific Games in 2015 in Port Moresby.
