Big V Coaching / Try-Outs Annoucement 2015

October 23rd, 2014 - submitted by the black angels

The Melbourne University Basketball Club is pleased to announce the Big V coaching appointments for the 2015 season.


MUBC are excited to welcome Andrew ‘Drew’ Solewicz to the Head Coach position for the Division 1 Men. Drew comes to MUBC with a wealth of experience at various clubs, in particular with the Maccabi Warriors and we feel he will be a fresh and valuable addition to MUBC. Drew has great ideas and plans for the program and we are looking forward to a big year of improvement in the men’s team.


Drew’s appointment sees Andrew Walker take on the role of Senior Assistant player coach. Andrew has been an excellent head coach of the MUBC men’s program and we would like to thank him for his tireless efforts. Given Andrew has recovered from a serious back injury and is ready to re-ignite his playing career, we are pleased he has this opportunity within MUBC.


The Division 2 Women will continue to be coached by Sam Fileccia. Sam was a fantastic asset to MUBC in 2014 and brought a great energy to the women’s program. After just missing out on a finals berth this year, he is seeking further improvement in 2015.
