The Bankstown Basketball Association has hosted yet another successful running of the annual Bruins Classic, with twenty-two teams playing at the Condell Park Basketball Stadium over the past weekend. Surprisingly, the two senior Bruins teams would be among the no-shows, with injuries and absentees reportedly decimating both teams and keeping them from attending this event. The local Association was however well represented by their State League men's team and their Youth League men's and women's teams. The Bruins Youth League men started with a gripping 60-58 win over the Penrith Panthers, then fell 66-63 to the Hills District Hornets in their second game of the day. Sunday's action saw the young Bruins return to the winner's list, with a powerful 77-42 win over the Sydney City Comets. The Bruins Youth League women had a thrilling 51-50 win over the Comets women on Saturday morning but fell 45-33 to the Sutherland Sharks on Sunday. The Bruins State League men had a tight 69-63 win over the Parramatta Wildcats State League men on Saturday morning, then fell 67-60 to the Penrith Panthers Championship division team on Sunday morning. The big winners overall in the Championship Division of the tournament were undoubtedly the Panthers men, who have only just returned to this level of senior basketball. The Panthers won all three of their games on the weekend to show they will not be easy-beats in 2012, as tipped by many so-called experts.
