ACU Joins the University Basketball League

Entering its third season, and first season with ACU, the UBL is the only national university league for any sport in Australia, leveraging the popularity of basketball within the university sector.

Team ACU will play a series of home and away fixtures against foes Curtain University, Federation University, RMIT, University of Sydney, University of the Sunshine Coast, La Trobe University, University of Melbourne, University of Adelaide, University of Tasmania, Victoria University, University of Western Australia and UTS.

Centred in Melbourne under the guidance of three-time NBL champion Matt Shanahan, the ACU team has a unique opportunity to select student athletes from a wide talent pool along the eastern seaboard. Matt established the university’s high-performance basketball program in late 2021 and is excited by the team’s progression into the UBL.

The UBL brings more to university life than sporting opportunities, with ACU Sport planning to partner with faculties to provide both work integrated learning and internships in high-performance sport, physical preparation, physiotherapy and sports management, including game-day logistics.

ACU will play their first round against RMIT in Melbourne on Wednesday 15 March.
