LOXTON’S up and coming
sporting superstars had a ball
with international basketballer
Jerome Randle at a special clinic
in Loxton on Sunday.
Over 60 Riverland basket-
ballers attended the clinic at the
Loxton Lutheran School, hosted
by National Basketball League
(NBL) Adelaide 36ers player
The Chicago-born basketball-
er first joined the 36ers in the
2015/16 season, and was award-
ed the NBL Fan Most Valuable
Player award in 2016.
“I definitely enjoy my time
with the kids, that’s the reason
why I do it,” Randle said on
“Growing up as a kid, I knew
that it was something I wanted
to have and I think it would have
helped a lot of kids in the inner
city of Chicago if they’d had
camps and professionals coming
around and showing them things.
“It would have helped them a
lot in the long run, so I like to
give back and I like to help the
kids – it’s a joy to watch the kids
get excited from meeting me and
learning things from me.”
The Riverland youngsters
were taken through a series of
basketball drills, testing out their
ball handling and playing skills.
Randle said, along with teach-
ing the basics of the game, he
liked to teach his students not to
give up on their dreams.
“If you work hard and stick
with what it is you want, that’s
all that really matters,” he said.
“You can see the seriousness
in them. You never really know
how it’s going to go with them
being this young, but for the
most part they’re dedicated.
“I just love watching them
run around and enjoying them-
Randle’s team, the Adelaide
36ers, is currently at the top of
the NBL ladder going into its
game against the Illawarra
Hawks this weekend.
“We are looking forward to
continuing to play hard and
hopefully bring a championship
to Adelaide,” Randle said.
“We feel confident going into
every game, we just have to play
hard and see how it goes.”
