Stefan Mandic signs for Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. After representing NZ at national age group U18 and U19’s Stefan had used several options in trying to secure a college scholarship in the US. Stefan’s family approached the USS Ltd team and we were able to secure the opportunity for Stefan fulfilling his goal of competing and training with high end US basketball players and coaches.
The hard work on the court will start now for Stefan as he will be competing with players from all over the US. The nation that essentially rules the court will be an excellent training ground for the former Rangitoto College student.
Belmont Abbey has been home to previous NZ international and a NZ Breakers player. USS Ltd wish Stefan all the best with his new basketball and college career.
