USA Basketball Tour 2015

Combine Game

Close game against Combine school Charlotte North Carolina.

We lost in over time by 1. The Combine players were a very friendly group of boys aspiring to achieve College basketball scholarships.

Ground zero NYC was a moving experience for our students.

They were lucky to be invited to go court side with the Houston Rockets.

It was a unique experience for our students who were able to watch the NBA players warm up. Not everyone gets to be this close to Dwight Howard and the team.

Braemar Girls’ Basketball Success

Claire Klusik and Jordyn McIntosh were part of the Southern Cross Star girls team who won 41-30 against Georgetown High.
