Preview: Pre-Season in Belgium vs Okapi Aalstar

Crelon Okapi Aalstar to give them their full name finished fourth in the Belgian Millionaires League last season and lost in the semi-finals of the play-offs.

Belgium Day 3 – Groundhog Day and Who Are Charleroi

Ok then Day 3 and you may guess from the title that it was a very similar day to Day 2! Once again two practices for the guys who are really putting in the work and coming together with every minute spent on the court together. A great sense of camaraderie building as they start…

Belgium Day 2 – The Entente Cordiale

You know the expression, “things will look better in the morning,”? Well, they did! I slept all right, the shower was nice and you start to feel your way in to the whole adventure. Breakfast was communal so we got to see Spirou Charleroi and what appears to be a very fit, big and strong…

Belgium Day 1+

So, the real drama starts on Bank Holiday Monday with a text from Coach Forrester at 6:10am advising that Ahmad and Victor were stuck in Chicago having had their flight cancelled and would not therefore be arriving with Kyle from Belfast at 10:15am.
