Mead Basketball Hosts Brazil in Exhibition Basketball Game

Our C-team(Coaches Todd Gossett & Jerry Stomps), Frosh-JV team(Coach Scott Wortley)  and a few JV team(Coach Erik Brucker) members played an exhibition game against a group 13-17 year olds from Rio.  The boys from Brazil had the "edge" on us physically, but our guys played well and the opportunity to meet young men from another country and experience a little different basketball culture and a different language(Portuguese), really made the afternoon worthwhile.  The young men from Rio played 3 games on Saturday - they traveled to Ferris after our 3:00 game for a double-header with the Saxons.  They traveled to Pullman to watch the Cougar Women's basketball team on Sunday, went sledding at Mt. Spokane, and will gather with the Northwest Christian boys team to eat and watch the BCS Championship game on Monday.  We're hoping to have them back next year!
