In the lead up to Australia’s Olympic campaign, the Boomers will return to home shores for two exhibition games, taking on a team of the NCAA’s top prospects.
The Boomers will face the Pac-12 All-Stars, a team made up of the best players from the US college system's west coast conference. The Pac-12 includes UCLA, USC, Andrew Bogut’s alma mater Utah, Stanford, Arizona and the 5th-ranked team in the country, Oregon.
While neither team is yet to be announced, the showdown will almost certainly feature some of Australia’s best basketball talent, including Patty Mills, Andrew Bogut, Matthew Dellavedova, Aaron Baynes and Joe Ingles.
Dubbed the 2016 Australian Boomers Farewell Series, the games will take place on Tuesday July 12 and Thursday July 14 at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena.
