Origin All Star Series

Origin 2017

The grand opening to the newly developed Casey Stadium proved to be a massive hit as over 1,000 people swept through the doors to see the first ever basketball game played at the brand new facility when Metro defeated Country in the two-game series.

Metro hoisted the trophy for the second time in the concept’s short span, backing up from its aggregate win in Shepparton in 2016. There was no need for a count back this year however, with Metro winning both women’s and men’s games; in fact, winning all eight quarters across the two contests.
