Keely Froling Named in Aus Women's 3x3 Squad

Townsville Basketball junior Keely Froling has today been named in Basketball Australia (BA)'s  2021 Australian Women’s 3x3 Basketball Squad ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualifying Tournament set to take place in Graz, Austria from May 26 – 30. 

This squad, which features twelve of Australia’s top female basketballers, will come together to train under the leadership of Head Coach David Biwer during a four-day training camp at BA’s Centre of Excellence, based out of the Australian Institute of Sport from March 7 – 11.

The Australian Women’s 3x3 team is still vying for a spot in the final eight teams to contest for a medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which will mark 3x3 basketball’s debut appearance at the event.

Head Coach David Biwer, spoke highly of what he expects to unfold at the camp and beyond: “I’m really excited about the upcoming camp and the potential that it brings. We have some fantastic new faces coming into the squad, alongside our world class and proven 3x3 players.

“This month’s camp will be the first in a series of camps we have planned ahead of May’s Olympic qualifying tournament. Having these camps at Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence at the Australian Institute of Sport will provide the perfect high-performance environment to prepare for the challenges ahead.”

When the FIBA 3x3 rankings were frozen on 1 April 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian women’s 3x3 team were ranked number one in Oceania and number 21 in the world.
