Local basketballer Harley Kent has been selected to represent NSW in the U/20 squad and is keen for the national titles that will be held in February next year.
Harley has played with state squads for the last couple of years, but is yet to win a major medal.
‘We have a pretty good tem this year, hopefully we can win it,’ he said.
Playing with some of the country’s best has helped him a lot, on and off the court.
‘Having experience at the higher levels is the best way to advance your game,’ he said.
Fresh out of high school Harley is adjusting to his new regime that includes playing regulalrly for his Gold Coast club. He played his junior basketball with local club Byron Beez.
Harley has embarked on a tour of America with a representative squad to get exposure to college coaches, with an eye to a basketball-based scholarship.
