Dual Olympian Mark Worthington to be inducted into Basketball WA Hall of Fame

There’s an irony that it’s taken retirement for Mark Worthington to understand how much he is loved in WA.

A dual Olympian, Commonwealth Games gold medallist, NBL championship winner and four-time All-NBL First Team selection, Worthington played his entire professional career outside of Perth and became public enemy number one whenever he returned home.

But there was no doubting the genuine respect he had in this state when he walked off RAC Arena after his final NBL game for Cairns Taipans to a standing ovation from Perth Wildcats fans and his name being chanting throughout the stadium.

That respect and admiration will again be evident on Saturday night when he is inducted in the Basketball WA Hall of Fame.
