According to news sites there has been the talk of bringing in a US based basketball coach to train the Solomon Islands Basketball Team.

I have added the link for players in the Solomons to read about the coach,

Maurice Leitzke

here is also a link to the Solomon Island player Waige Turueke

And here is another link that shows his statistics, which I regret to say are not what I had expected, the team also does not play in the NCAA division as I was led to believe but only in the lesser known NJCAA Division basketball

But I commend Weige on his achievements and by bringing the coach to the solomons is great for the sport, the only thing I am worried about is that maybe, just maybe there might be coaches in the solomon islands that can take this position as a cheaper alternative.

Whatever choice the outcome is, I stand behind the development of basketball in the Solomon Islands.
