The Boomers have announced a thirteen (13) man squad that will head to Melbourne to play in the warm-up matches before the FIBA World Cup.

The Boomers have completed their camp in Cairns with a game against the University of Houston.

The players not going through to Melbourne are Matthew Dellavedova and Will McDowell-White.

Matthew Dellavedova a three-time Olympian and two-time FIBA World Cup representative is a mainstay of the Boomers program and an integral leader on and off the court. Dellavedova was a member of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic bronze medal winning team and captain of the qualifying window in Melbourne last June at John Cain Arena in front of a home crowd.

Will McDowell-White is a young talent in Australian basketball who has been instrumental in his role in the qualifiers and a member of the gold medal winning Asia Cup team in 2022.

*Jock Landale is currently injured with a rolled ankle and will likely miss the much-anticipated games in Melbourne but is expected to make a full recovery and head to Japan.

The three warm-up games against Venezuela, Brazil and South Sudan are in Melbourne on August 14, 16 and 17.
