San Diego Surf Professional Basketball Team to Play for Chengdu Earthquake Benefit in China

San Diego, CA, February 25, 2010 --( The San Diego Surf pro basketball team of the American Basketball Association has just announced their acceptance to play the Beijing Aoshen Basketball Club, also of the ABA, in the Chengdu International Basketball Invitational Games in Chengdu, China, Sichuan Province, March 6th and 7th. The team is scheduled to leave March 2.

Coach Terry Mason of the Surf, which has an American Basketball Association national Power Ranking of 11th, has a challenging task to beat the Beijing team, with a former L.A. Laker, Sun Yue, on board, who has won 7 of their 8 games played against U.S. teams this season. The Kentucky Bisons and Beijing split two games and Chicago Steam, Washington Raptors and West Virginia Blazers each lost two to Beijing. Mason believes that it’s about time for another victory for a U.S. team against the tough Beijing squad.

The Surf’s trip will include some sightseeing and a chance to experience the great Chinese food from the Sichuan Province, well known for its hot spicy menus. The players and coach are very excited to participate in this China tour and hope to come back with a victory.
