Australias best high school basketballers are out to impress 23 college coaches from the United States in Canberra this week. Ted Hendricks Jersey .Basketball Australia has flown out the college coaches for the three-day camp, which will include a number of drills, tests and three tournament-style matches for the 32 most talented high school players in the country.Australian basketballers have become a very intriguing prospect to colleges, Centre of Excellence coach Adam Caporn said.The current Boomers have done so many great things for our sport through college, Europe, internationally, and in the NBL and NBA.Some of the boom on Aussie talent comes off the back of Ben Simmons and Thon Maker going as top 10 NBA draft picks on June 23 and the camp is the first of its kind to be held in Australia.Among the coaches will be those from the highly regarded Texas Christian University, Oregon State, Southern Methodist University and St Marys College of California where Patty Mills and Matthew Dellavedova both attended.There will also be a number of national Australian coaches in attendance at the camp, as well as representatives of NBL teams.We had a number of elite athletes doing their own work and sometimes misinformed about what was going on overseas through the college system and even locally, Caporn said.We wanted to have a really good basketball tournament and also give them an education on all those pathways and a chance to be evaluated by all those coaches.Most will be looking to follow in the path of youngster Jack White, who has already secured his college future with the highly regarded Duke for next year.Jack has a lot of the qualities that you would think would give him a chance to find out how good he can be, Caporn said.Hes got the work ethic, great teammate, good person, and a very talented basketball player. Lester Hayes Jersey . The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum. Dave Casper Jersey . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. http:///...matuszak-jersey.html . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. Saina Nehwals coach Vimal Kumar is hopeful that she will return to competition in six to eight weeks after her knee surgery in Mumbai last week. Saina, he says, can start her rehabilitation work within the next three weeks and he is confident that she can be back playing on the international circuit by November.Saina underwent surgery after returning from the Rio Olympics, where she lost in the group stage. It was later learnt that she was carrying an injury into the Games.The muscles get considerably weak after you undergo a procedure like this, Kumar explained. Your quadriceps, hamstring, calf area, all need to be strengthened. Nothing is wrong with her other tendons, ligaments, ACL, it is just the cracked bone. How you take this disappointment in your stride, that is the key. She is a tough girl, she can always come back. But yes, the disappointment will be there of what happened at the Olympics.In hindsight, though, an MRI in Bangalore before the Games would probably have revealed the extent of the injury then and very likely have ruled her out of the Games.Kumar also spoke of the events leading to Sainas premature departure from the Games. She first complained of slight discomfort and pain in the knee a couple of days before their scheduled departure for Rio.?Medical experts in Bangalore, where Saina was training, said what she was experiencing was likely to be a fat pad inflammation, a condition brought upon by the strain athletes who engage in high intensity workouts undergo. She was told not to worry and, with that assurance, Saina boarded the flight for Rio.At her first workout in Rio, where she arrived on August 8, Saina continued to experience slight pain, Kumar says, but nothing too worrisome. The pain started to increase when she played her first match against local girl Lohaynny Vicente on August 11. Saina won but was visiblly distressed, her 21-17, 21-17 win coming in nearly 40 minutes. Karl Joseph Jersey. A specialist doctor who was consulted prescribed a pain-killing injection.The medical advice Saina and her team received was that the injection would take a few days to take full effect. Her next match was against Maria Ultina of Ukraine, a player ranked outside the world top 60. Saina, who needed to win this match to make the pre-quarterfinals, calculated that a win here would give the injection time to take full effect and would help her for the later matches. Ultina beat Sania, however, and knocked her out of the Games.During the match she started to experience an unbearable amount of pain, Kumar says. She couldnt even walk immediately after the match.Saina flew out of Rio that night itself and an MRI on arrival in India revealed that shed chipped a bone in her knee.The surgeon who conducted the procedure in Mumbai, Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, in fact said that he was amazed that Saina had managed to get through two matches despite such a severe injury. Kumar though wasnt surprised at Sainas insistence to simply grind her teeth, bear the pain and play on.The timing of Sainas injury was extremely unfortunate, especially as she had recovered from an ankle problem last year to return to the circuit in March. By winning her last tournament, the Australian Open in July, Saina had signalled that she would be among the major contenders for a podium finish at Rio - more so because defending Olympic champion Li Xuerui, who Saina was drawn to take on in the quarterfinals, was also struggling with an injury.Instead, Saina has now slipped four spots to number nine in the latest rankings and will inevitably drop out of the top-10 in the weeks ahead.
