Riverhawks boys basketball team hosts the Frankston Blues from Australia
PASCO, WA - The Riverhawks boys basketball team hosted the Frankston Blues from Australia. Following last night's game, the Australian players stayed overnight at the Chiawana players' homes.
Then this morning, the Australians went to school with their new friends.
They say they're learning a ton being on the other side of the world, all while having a great time.
"Basketball-wise, probably how to play at their level and sort of be able to talk and play at a competitive level with these guys, they're the best in the world at what they do," said Liam Doyle-Toombs, a member of the Frankston Blues basketball team.
"Every tour, it kind of opens up the students' eyes and seeing them have a lot of fun," said Frankston Blues coach Steve Blackley. "A lot of these kids are best mates and have been playing together for ten years, so to see them travel overseas and have fun together is probably the best thing."
