Another big week in hoops is in the books so let’s have a look at what tickled our fancy over the past 7 days!

Who’s making noise in the US?

This week we take a look at AUSA OG Harry Froling of Marquette University.

Harry transferred from SMU to Marquette last year and has undergone a massive change in his physical appearance along with his playing role, as he has had to adapt to a new system and identity as a player for the Golden Eagles.

Frolo has been making some noise on the court this season, including a season-high 11 points vs #1 ranked Villanova. Marquette looks poised to make a run in the NCAA Tourney, so keep an eye out for him.

Best of luck for the rest of the season Big Fella, the future is bright up in Milwaukee!

Training video we love:

Found this gem while looking up some skill coaching techniques, this is a very powerful move that is used by Bradley Beal very effectively to avoid pressure defence and it’s a great move to learn as a junior to have up your sleeve when you begin playing at higher levels of competition.


Who’s next..? A name to know:

Harry Hornery is silky smooth banana bending Queenslander who’s making splashes on the Southern California High School scene with his limitless range and feel for the game. Harry and Mater Dei just won the CIF State Championship this week!

Harry is finishing his Freshman year at basketball Powerhouse, Mater Dei. Harry already has interest already from several big Division 1 schools including UCLA and Oregon. He was a stand out performer for our AAU Youth squad last July, including hitting 5 consecutive threes with a University of Oregon coach sitting courtside to watch him.

Recruiting information: 

We have all heard about amateurism as a college player, but what does it really mean? What are the common ways people break amateurism rules (before going to college)?

The basic rules are that you can’t sign with a professional agent, and you can’t be paid more than your expenses to play for a team.

The NCAA has a myriad of definitions for a ‘professional’ team – in Australia, the most obvious example is either an NBL or WNBL team (however, many players have joined NBL or WNBL clubs as development players – and have maintained their amateur status)

What’s next for AUSA Hoops? 

We are looking forward to the opening weekend of NSW Waratah League where a bunch of our Alumni and future players will be participating.

We are also still taking expressions of interest for our Youth Development Tour scheduled for January 2019. Check it out if you have hopes of someday playing in the US and want to find out what it’s all about!
