Opals Basketball v Chinese Women’s National Team – International Basketball, Logan City, Queensland, Australia; 24 July 2011

Hi all

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to see the Australian Women’s Basketball Team, “The Opals” play against the Chinese Women’s National Team at the Logan Metro Indoor Sports Centre, Queensland, Australia. The national team has not often visited my area (south east Queensland), so I was very happy to see the game. Here are some pics:
