FORMER National Basketball League MVP and Mildura basketball icon “Jumping” Joe Hurst said it’s great to see the NAIDOC Basketball Fun Day continuing to be a big part of the Mildura basketball scene.

The day was run for the ninth time on Wednesday through the Department of Justice and Regulation, Mallee District Aboriginal Services and Indigenous Family Violence Regional Action Group, with Hurst particularly happy with how the event was put together.

Through his work with the Department of Justice and Regulation, the former Mildura Mavericks import and American College star had been a big driver of the day in the past before his family moved to Bendigo.

“I think it’s going amazing considering I didn’t get the chance to be hands-on with it this year,” Hurst said.
