The NBL1 celebrates First Nations Round this week to recognise the important role played by Indigenous Australians in the national basketball community. Players and clubs from across the country will be wearing special edition uniforms, while courts will pay homage to First Nations communities. There are 96 players in the NBL1 who identify as Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islanders.
Sunday’s showdown with the Supercats will also feature a number of special pre-game performances, making it a game day not to be missed.
On the court, the Cobra Women (6-8) take on the 9-5 Supercats – the first outing between the two teams since the 2019 NBL1 Championship Game. The Cobra Men (8-6) follow against the 8-5 Supercats, in what should be a thrilling top-eight showdown.
