June 8-16, 2011.
International Sports Organization Athletes in Action together with Moldova Basketball Federation organized a tour where AIA Basketball team, consisting from NCAA players played 7 games in 8 days with Moldova clubs and U-18 National team. Americans won 6 out of 7 games, loosing to UASM, 2011 Championship and Cup winners.
US athletes played 3 games with Moldova U-18 team, that is getting ready for European Championship in San Marino this July. Thought loosing in all 3 games it was a very good experience for young players and a part of preparation program for Europeans.
After playing games in Moldova AIA team added 3 out of 3 wins in Iasi, Romania. Nathan Priest (6'7'', North Carolina Pembroke, 23,7 PPG) and Matt Johnson (6' 6'', Columbia University New York), 2 young NCAA players where the most effective players on the team.
Hope such tours will not be spontaneous and single, but will long term and fruitful, which will help Moldova basketball to develop and reach new levels.
