Stellazzurra Basketball Academy recruits the Indian No.1 prospect Harshwardhan Tomar

Pubblicato il Mercoledì 23 Dicembre 2015 - General News


Stellazzurra Basketball Academy is proud to announce the recruitment of Indian player Harshwardhan Tomar. Born on February 1, 2001 in Gwalior, India, “Harsh” shone in the U16M Asiabasket Championships last October, where he collected 8 points and 6 rebounds per game with the Indian National Team. 6'9” power forward/center, Tomar is one of the greatest basketball hopes of the Asian continent and certainly the No. 1 prospect in India.


The Stellazzurra Basketball Academy Operations Manager for Asia, Mauro Matteo: “The arrival of Harsh at Stellazzurra Academy is the first piece of the puzzle we started building a year ago together with Director of Basketball Operations, Giacomo Rossi. Despite the competition from top European clubs, we managed to make it clear to everyone involved in Harsh's decision that our program on the guy goes beyond creating a top player for European level, it also means giving him an academic of the highest level. We want to give him a chance to be master of his destiny. Recruiting the No. 1 prospect of a country that is interested in basketball like India, with a population of 1 billion three hundred milion people, could mean huge showcase for Stellazzurra Basketball Academy, but above all the chance to play a key-role in a very important geographic area”.

Director of Basketball Operations, Giacomo Rossi: “One of the goals we have to implement our Academy is to explore some “basketball market” little known but of enormous potential. To be able to start already with a very interesting player from a country like India is very exciting. For us it's a chance to improve ourselves even at home, now we will have a guy from another culture more than those already host. We will be able to make him feel at once a “stellino” to start technical, physical and academic work about him”.
