Busy day for US-based hoopsters

With the exception of Sophoen Oeun, who will fly directly to Malaysia, the rest of the United States-based Cambodian basketball players have assembled in Phnom Penh as they prepare to depart for their SEA Games campaign on Friday.

The players will be going through a busy day of socialising today, with a practice session in the evening at the Olympic Stadium.

A visit to the Royal University of Phnom Penh at 9am will include a meeting with its president and a meet and greet with students.

After lunch, the players will go to the United States Embassy for a meeting with Ambassador William A Heidt.

A Facebook live event “Let’s Chat” is to be held at 2:30pm.

A training session at the Olympic Stadium Indoor Arena has been fixed for 5:30pm. It affords an excellent opportunity for local players and fans to get to know the America-based players.

Cambodia’s opening game is against Singapore on Sunday.
