Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I rise to congratulate the Prahran basketball team, who were grand finalists in the recent City Basketball League finals. The league was contested by teams from public housing estates across inner-city Melbourne. I was proud to sponsor the Prahran team, who were fantastic ambassadors for our community as they competed in each round at a different public housing estate, going undefeated in the regular season and making the grand final. Well done to Solomon Deng, Yor Nyangyok, B. J. Noble, Fource Nyieker, Johnny Darcy, Osman Farah and Brett Boscacci. Congratulations also go to coach Jeremy Corea, the man who put it all together, Steve Bacash, all those who helped out and of course Prahran's number one fan, Liz Charles.
