Morgan Street Primary have become the first school from Broken Hill to enter the finals of the NSW basketball knock-out competition.

Schools from across the State are involved in the PSSA competition.
Barrier coach Sharon DeGoumois said she was reasonably confident the years 5 and 6 girls could survive the first round.
"It's very different because we have never seen these teams before," Ms DeGoumois said.
The state knock-out competition is held in Bathurst.
Ms DeGoumois said volunteer parents would drive four cars to get the eight team members to the event, which helps them experience a new level of competition.
Yesterday students and staff were taking part in several fundraising activities to help pay for the trip.
Students wore casual clothes to school, had a sausage sizzle lunch and participated in activities to raise money for the event.
The first game Morgan Street will play will be against a primary school from the NSW South Coast.
The competitions will take place on Monday at Bathurst Basketball Stadium, with the Barrier team playing at 9.30am.
