ILT Stadium Southland has been announced as the home for a new National Basketball League (NBL) 3×3 bastketball competition that will bring all seven NBL teams to the city, as well as the Otago Nuggets and Franklin Bulls, for the two-day tournament in May.

The Southland Sharks have suffered their biggest loss of the season with a 122-77 thumping by the Wellington Saints in Invercargill on Sunday evening.
