2011 Asia Oceania Championships

With three days’ play remaining at the 2011 Asia Oceania Championships, which doubles as the London 2012 Paralympic qualifier, the Rollers win (65-49) over Korea ensured them as one of the top two teams in the men’s division. 

The Australian Rollers were pushed for the first time at the tournament by a Korean outfit spurred on by their home-court advantage.

The reigning Paralympic and World Champions withstood the challenge, with the West Australian connection of Shaun Norris (19 points, seven rebounds), Brad Ness (14 points, eight rebounds) and Justin Eveson (11 points) the key contributors.

The 16-point margin was the smallest of the Rollers' campaign in Korea, which has seen them annihilate Chinese Taipei (88-37), New Zealand (104-27) and Iraq (79-29) in their previous three outings.
