Gold Coast Blaze v UTSA Roadrunners (University of Texas San Antonio) Basketball NBL Pre-season Game, Carrara, Qld., Australia

Hi all

I recently enjoyed a very interesting game of basketball between the Gold Coast Blaze and the visiting University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners (UTSA). It was played as an NBL pre-season game for the Blaze, and a part of a pre-season exhibition tour for the American visitors. Here are some pics:

A nice win for the Blaze, and also the start of a very enjoyable week for the visitors (See the links near the top right corner of the page on the UTSA website).

Here’s my Smugmug photo gallery.

Thanks for looking.
