Illawarra rising star Angus Glover will lead the Australian under 19s team

WOLLONGONG pair Angus Glover and Kyle Zunic have made the final 12-man Australian under 19s squad for the FIBA Oceania Championships in Fiji next week.

The Emus will be looking book their place at the Under-19 FIBA world championships next year which will be held in Egypt in July.

A member of the same AIs centre of excellence prgram that’s produced the likes of Patty Mills and Ben Simmons in recent seasons, Glover is the only surviving member of the Emus 2015 world championship squad.

“It’s just a great opportunity to put on the green and gold,” Glover said.

“I wear those colours with pride every time and everyone is focused on the job at hand.

“To get back and play on the world stage like in 2015 will be amazing and I feel very confident in our team to do something special.”

Fellow CoE member Zunic will make the step up to under 19s level after competing at the under 17s world championships in Spain last year.
