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:

Jamal Robateau just gets the shot up, while Kalif Bakare tries to take the charge
Blaze starting point guard Jason Cadee forces Melvin Johnson III into the behind-the-back dribble
Wonderful extension by Brendan Teys whilst on his way to the basket
Tyler Wood, Zac Carter, Keba Bhatti
Another Australian, Igor Nujic, goes to the basket around Jarrod Camble
Queenslander Jeromie Hill with the emphatic dunk
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.
