Aaron Fearne to be Head Coach for New Zealand 17U FIBA National Team


Huge on so many levels.


Does that mean we will have to replace him as Assistant Coach?


No he will still be here.




Everyone can use a nice minor league franchise feeding the Big Club !


how good is basketball in new zealand and do you guys think coaching new zealand can help us also build a pipeline into australia?


Aussies have been good to Saint Mary’s and Utah.


The article below talks some about the impact Fearne coaching this team can have. HUGE opportunity for us in my opinion.


Australia has had some pretty good teams in International play and UVa has a 3* freshman from there. Also, UVa’s starting center the past two seasons is from New Zealand.


FWIW, see that Kiwi hoopster 6-10 F/C Angus McWilliam of TCU planning to transfer.


His play at TCU gives no indication of whether he is any good, but he is 6’10". I hope Fearne is on top of this.
