US coach passes on basketball technique tips
AMERICAN basketball coach and player Ben Adelman has stopped by Gladstone to see how the Giants Liquor Port City Power coaches Dean and Danny Page operate.
Adelman, the son of legendary US college coach Cletus Adelman, has been in Australia for the past month.
He is here to observe how the game is coached in Australia and is passing on the latest coaching techniques being used in the US college system.
'The systems here are a fair bit different, but over here you have a number of good shooters of the ball,' Adelman said.
Adelman has visited a number of clubs including the three-time NBL champions Sydney Kings.
'The clubs have been great to me, I have enjoyed seeing how they operate and gain a knowledge of how basketball is in Australia,' he said.
Adelman has also found some time to check out the sights and even starred in a Gladstone men's game on Tuesday night.
Power women's coach Danny Page has enjoyed the chance to talk philosophies with Adelman.
