MELBOURNE, Aus. – Before Australia’s Thursday morning exhibition basketball game against Team USA, Utah Jazz small forward, Joe Ingles was interviewed pregame game by his wife, Renae, who closed the interview with a good luck kiss.

Thursday’s exhibition was a warm-up for both teams in preparation for the international tournament and took place “down under” in the city of Melbourne.

Renae Ingles is a professional netballer in Australia. Netball is a popular sport among Australian women. It can be described as basketball minus the backboards and dribbling.

The couple has been married since 2015 and have two children – twins named Milla and Jacob.

Knowing the magnitude of playing against the USA in front of his fellow countrymen, she asked her husband how excited he was to play.

“To be in front of friends and family, and you on the sidelines. It’s going to be a great night to have everyone here,” Joe responded.

Joe, who was born in Adelaide, Australia was selected to represent his home country during the 2019 FIBA World Cup. This year will be his third experience with the Australian National Team (or Boomers as they’re nicknamed) in the tournament.


Team USA beat the Australians 102-86 early Thursday morning in Australia.

Ingles started for the Boomers and had 6 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals. He shot 2-of-6 from the field and 1-for-4 from the three-point line in 29 minutes.

The game also featured the Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell who played 25 minutes, while posting 13 points, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block. He shot 6-of-15 from the field, including 1-for-5 from downtown.

The 2019 FIBA World Cup will take place in China from August 31 to September 15.
