Preface by Janx…. With our featured athletes Isaac White (6’1’’ Combo Guard, 2017 Stanford Commit) and Lat Mayen (6’8’’ Wing, 2017 TCU Commit) committing to High Major D1 NCAA programs in recent months I thought it would be fascinating to ask a friend of mine, Luke Schenscher, and one of the greatest players South Australia has ever produced, to blog on what these young men can expect, his own experience and journey as well. He has played at a similar level to where Lat and Isaac are heading and even went all the way to the National Championship game. I hope that not only Isaac and Lat get some value and insights but so does the rest of our readers. Whilst the state of South Australia has

Introducing Coach Mes to High Performance Hoops Network and a preface for Seekamp's blog Pictured above: Coach Mes in action with Cabra College I was lucky enough to help coach Nicole Seekamp when she won a Silver medal at the U14 National Club Championships in 2005, and then again as an U18 when she gained a scholarship to the CoE.

Some of the tactics I have tried to help that I feel work well: Drink Chamomile tea before bed. Swisse herbal sleep

By Uche Dibiamaka | A journey of commitment, passion and development from Aussie pathways through to

Pictured: Uche with his SA Metro jersey when he made his SA Metro debut in April 2016. Preface by Janx.... Uche Dibiamaka is a rare talent. His unique mix of skills, physical strength and athleticism is something I have not seen often, if at all, in a guard, in Australian junior basketball. It is no surprise to me that he has began to burst onto national US rankings since moving over there for High School. I thought he could become a key component of our 2016 South Australia Metro team but after the East Coast Challenge tournament, which pitted him against some of the best kids in the State of NSW, Victoria and ACT my Assistant Coaches and I were left in no doubt. It was his work ethic an
