HISTORY OF THE MEDALS

Woollacott Medal

The Woollacott Medal was donated by the Basketball Association of South Australia on behalf of Noel Woollacott's Emporium. Noel Woollacott was killed in action during World War II.

Originally given to the Best and Fairest player in the District competition, the Noel Woollacott Trophy eventually evolved into the Woollacott Medal and was upgraded to Fairest and Most Brilliant in the early 1970s. In 1999 for the first time the medal was awarded to the ABA Central Conference's Most Valuable Player.

The votes are cast by referees post-game on a 3, 2, 1 basis. In 1981 and 1996, the competition experimented with coaches voting, before reverting to the original format.

Halls Medal

The first Halls Medal was awarded in 1964. Prior to that, Woollacott Medals were awarded.

As the women wanted a separate medal acknowledging women's basketball, a sponsor was sought. Halls, manufacturers of soft drinks agreed to sponsor the award. Henceforth, the Halls Medal was awarded to winners of the Best and Fairest player in the District Women's competition.

Like the Woollacott Medal, it was upgraded to the Fairest and most Brilliant player in the early 1970s.

In 1999 for the first time the medal was awarded to the ABA central Conference's Most Valuable Player. The votes are cast by referees post-game on a 3, 2, 1 basis. In 1981 and 1996, the competition experimented with coaches voting, before reverting to the original format.
