SEABL
2011 SEABL COACHES OF THE YEAR
Thursday, September 15, 2011

As the 2011 South East Australian Basketball League season enters its final days, the League is proud to announce this year’s Coaches of the Year for the men and women’s competition.

 

As the 2011 South East Australian Basketball League season enters its final days, the League is proud to announce this year’s Coaches of the Year for the men and women’s competition.

The award takes into account regular season performances and is voted on by Head Coaches and Team Captains on a 3-2-1 basis. Ballotters are not allowed to vote for members of their own club.

From the East Conference, the coach of the Bendigo Braves, Ben Harvey has won the award while from the South Conference, David Biwer as coach of the Nunawading Spectres has been honoured. In the women’s competition, Larissa Anderson from the Dandenong Rangers has been awarded the accolade.

Ben Harvey has earned his first Coach of the Year award since taking over the reigns at Bendigo only at the start of last year. As a player, he recorded over 300 games and was included in the SEABL All-Star team three times. At the upcoming 30-year Gala function, Harvey has been nominated as a SEABL All-Star for the 1990’s and 2000’s. Harvey took the Braves to the East Conference championship last year, only to fall short against Geelong in the National final. This year the Braves finished the regular season with the best record in the entire league, amassing 21 wins and only 5 losses. Bendigo also won back-to-back East Conference championships with a win on the road against Knox in the final, and has an opportunity to take out the ultimate goal this when they meet Nunawading on Saturday.

In his first year at the helm with the Nunawading Spectres, Biwer has added another accolade to his many triumphs with his first Coach of the Year award. Having already won a conference Most Valuable Player Award in 1996 and 1997, Biwer becomes the first player in SEABL history to win both a Coach and MVP award. In over 300 games as a player, Biwer played alongside East Conference Coach of the Year Ben Harvey in 1996 and from 1998-2000, and is also nominated as an All-Star for the 1990’s and 2000’s at the upcoming 30-year Gala function. Earning the South Minor Premiership with a 20-6 regular season record, Biwer has a real chance at taking the Spectres to their first Championship since 1995 this Saturday when they meet Bendigo. Biwer beat Frankston head coach Bill Runchey by just one vote.

In her sixth year as a leader from the sidelines, Larissa Anderson has picked up her third Coach of the Year award in the women’s competition. Having coached Nunawading from 2004-07, Anderson took the Dandenong Rangers to their first championship in ten years last season, and has a real chance at going back-to-back this year. In her playing days, Anderson played over 180 games for Nunawading, Bendigo and Dandenong as well as competing in over 150 games at WNBL level. Larissa has been a veteran of this league and is a nominee for the 1990’s All-Star team to be announced at the SEABL Gala Dinner on Saturday night. She received 38 votes and narrowly beat Donna Rinaldi (Ballarat) and Paul O’ Brien (Geelong).

Great effort by Dave B in his first year @ Spectres. Good pick up. Does anyone know who was the insightful person who hired him??? May need to get them onto our polticians & find better quality. A true entrepreneur in the basketball world.
