Gold Coast Blaze v University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) Roadrunners NBL Pre-season Basketball

Hi all

I recently enjoyed a very interesting game of basketball between the Gold Coast Blaze and the visiting University of Texas San Antonio Roadrunners (UTSA). It was played as an NBL pre-season game for the Blaze, and a part of a pre-season exhibition tour for the American visitors. Here are some pics:
