Braemar College Students See Basketball Stars In Action

Our Braemar College basketballers were recently given tickets to see top American college team, Louisiana State University (LSU) play Melbourne United at Hisense Arena.

It is the first time a USA college team of this standard has toured Australia.

NBA Australian star Andrew Bogurt was in attendance as were half the Collingwood Football team.

The students had a great time. It was quite a spectacular event for Melbourne, and a prelude for our basketballers of things to come in America in December this year.
