Willetton player Bailey Tucek (12) and teammates Mitchell Cusworth (12) and Daniel Foster (11) have been training with the 2013 Interstate Boys 12s basketball team two to three times a week in readiness for the championships in August.
Bailey started playing basketball two years ago and discovered a natural talent.
‘I only started playing to keep fit for football, now I’ve got better I want to take it seriously,’ he said.
His father Paul said winning last Thursday’s game was a good test for the junior players and said he hoped it built confidence in them.
‘It’s a very competitive sport, Bailey is not the tallest player out there, but he is the quickest,’ Mr Tucek said.
