Gaels’ Australian Pipeline Featured on ESPN.com

The Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team’s long Australian lineage was featured in a story on ESPN.com Friday, titled — “Saint Mary’s Australian Connection Keeps Growing

The story covers the beginning of the Gaels’ Australian connection with head coach Randy Bennett‘s arrival and the signing of Adam Capon in 2001. It includes interviews with current Gaels Dane Pineau and Emmett Naar, as well as Bennett, Caporn and current assistant coach Marty Clarke.

“The school and community embraced us wholeheartedly from Day 1. Secondly, I think Coach Bennett and the leadership at Saint Mary’s have similar values that Aussie athletes and teams have — such as ‘team-first’ and toughness. This meant that the Aussie imprint was not only embraced but reinforced.” — Adam Caporn, former SMC Basketball Player

The 2016-17 season begins Nov. 11 at home versus Nevada. Tickets are on sale and available for purchase online, by phone (925-631-GoTx) or by visiting the SMC Ticket Office during business hours (9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday-Friday).
