NCAA - Aussies Galore Today

I do not have the stats at my disposal, but I'm confident to say that today would have been a record day for Australians playing in NCAA Division 1 basketball.

First, there was 2008 Olympic hopeful Andrew Ogilvy of Vanderbilt putting up 20 points. Patrick Mills (St Mary's) tasted success along with his two fellow Aussies teammates. Utah has a couple of Down Under punters and Nicholls St has about five. Aaron Baynes of the No 9 Washington St Cougars and Daniel Dillon of Arizona played as well. I'm sure I have missed a few too.

Nice footage. Are you getting ready for retirement? You are like the Sam Newman of the NBL, taking it to the streets....Snoop Wogg

I could only dream that basketball would get the exposure of AFL, so there could be a Sammy of hoops.
