Wangaratta basketball rising star Brodie Paul was part of Australia’s first ever 15s team to win gold at the Mel Young Easter Classic in New Zealand.

The 13-year-old was one of three selected from this year’s Country Cup under 14 boys squad and played in the 87-81 win against Waitakere West Auckland.

Despite being up against much larger opponents, the boys came from behind to win the grand final in overtime and claim gold.
