MELBOURNE—Staff at Hisense Arena were outraged last night as members of the South Dragons basketball team allegedly trashed the venue during their championship celebrations. 

Among the alleged misdemeanors by the Dragons staff and players was petty theft via the removal of fixtures (including both nets) and the littering of confetti.  The misbehaviour was apparently fueled by alcohol, most notably champagne, according to witnesses. As players went into the crowd to celebrate with fans, Hisense Arena staff additionally allege that the players proceeded to vandalise fans' t-shirts and singlets by "tagging" them.

Hisense Arena has threatened to sue the Dragons.  If Hisense Arena is successful with such litigation it could spell the end of the club.
MELBOURNE—Lawyers of The Ozho, a limited release online newspaper, issued a writ late yesterday afternoon to The Hoops Cooperative, the writers of The Bball Scoop, to cease thinking about plagiarising material from the unpopular pseudo-newspaper. 

The issue was promptly settled out of court late last night. Although the details of the settlement are confidential, our sources at the The 'Scoop can reveal that The Ozho received three The Bball Scoop badges and keyrings in exchange for the rights to copy The Ozho. Both parties appeared to be pleased with the outcome.
EARTH—The Australian basketball landscape will be forever changed with the launch of a new online publication, The Bball Scoop. The 'Scoop is an independent, privately run Australian basketball news source compiled by a collection of the best internet leakers on the Australian basketball scene.  

 “We first became aware of this site before The 'Scoop was even established.”, an unnamed source within The 'Scoop commented. “That’s how connected we are”.

Despite the unexpected news leak, those behind The 'Scoop were cautious not to preempt reports of the establishment of their own website. “We had sources murmuring about this website for days before we decided to form the website ourselves and leak the news of this new website to the internet world via this website”.
