The Oceania Basketball Tournament

In 1997 basketball was included in the Mini Games, so therefore the Oceania Tournament was not played. The South Pacific Mini Games are held every 4 years for Island teams in the two years between the main South Pacific Games. These Games are held in countries with limited facilities and because of the large number of basketball entries this sport has not been included in previous Mini Games. Normally the Oceania Basketball Confederation conducts the Oceania Tournament at a similar time so as to provide competition for all countries. As a result no Australian or New Zealand teams participated. The South Pacific Games is a Multi-sport event, much like the Olympics, (albeit on a much smaller scale), with participation exclusively from countries around the South Pacific. ... FIBA Oceania is a zone within the FIBA association which contains all 21 national Oceania FIBA federations. ...
