Basketball family to pay tribute to Hillcrest community.

December 20, 2021 | WNBL news

The WNBL and NBL will unite this week to honour the lives lost in Tasmania over the past few days. Both leagues will stand together throughout rounds three and four and pay tribute by holding a minute silence and wearing black armbands at all games.

The basketball family is deeply saddened by the tragic news coming from the Hillcrest community and would like to extend our condolences to the families of the six children who passed away and the whole Hillcrest community on what was meant to be a day of celebration.

Along with Basketball Australia, the WNBL is further saddened to learn of the passing of junior basketballer, Chace Harrison, who was a much-loved member of the Devonport Warriors and the Basketball Tasmania Further Development Program. Chace will always be remembered in our hearts. Our thoughts are with all impacted by this tragedy.

A public fund has been set up in support of the families and the community affected.
