Highland Park grad plays pro basketball in Australia - Jan 21, 2013


POSTED BY:

Although he was a member of Highland Park High Schools state championship basketball team in 2004, Theron Wilson never thought he would be playing professional basketball, but that is exactly what he has done for the past three years first in Ukraine, then in Finland and now in Australia.

I dont think too many people in todays world know whats really to come, Wilson said. We have some ideas, thoughts and some preparation, but we never really know. We just hope that we love it no matter what it is.

For Wilson that preparation included two years at Seward County Community College in Liberal and another two years at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill., where he graduated in 2009 with a major in mass communications and advertising and a minor in marketing.

In addition to his studies, Wilson was also part of the schools basketball team, averaging 18 points and eight rebounds per game.

I liked being away from home, Wilson said, yet Bradley wasnt so far away so that my family could get to some games in Nebraska, Wichita State, Springfield and Iowa if they wanted.

It was while he was at Bradley that he began to have hopes of someday playing in the NBA, but when an agent contacted him about playing basketball overseas, he decided to give it a try.

Playing overseas meant Wilson needed to become familiar with Federal International Basketball Association rules.

The rules are the same for the most part, but the three-point line distance is different, Wilson said.

FIBA rules also call for 10-minute quarters instead of the NBAs 12. In addition, the number of time-outs and fouls are different for the two associations, as is the amount of possession time before the ball must be shot.

While he enjoyed playing basketball in Ukraine and Finland, he said one drawback was having to depend more on others because of the language barrier.

A shared language was one of the things that attracted him to Australia.

Now preparing for his second season as a member of the Geelong Supercats, Wilson said the most difficult things for him to get used to were the 17- to 20-hour flight there and sitting on the right side while driving.

You have to look at everything a different way, he said.

Wilson also had to adapt to paying higher prices for most things.

Prices there are more expensive, he said. While most people get paid more theres a higher minimum wage the cost of goods and services is more. A $3 ice cream bar is not uncommon.

However, he said, the country offers free health care, and the higher prices are the result of more imports.

While most people dont associate Australia with basketball, Wilson said the sports popularity is growing rapidly in the Land Down Under.

Its one of the biggest sports over there, he said, adding only cricket and footy an Australian form of football that incorporates elements of basketball, soccer and football are more popular.

With games in Australia only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Wilson spends his noncourt time working out, practicing and giving clinics and camps as part of his team duties.

Because he works only eight months February through October in Australia, Wilson spends his time at home in Topeka practicing with some of the Highland Park players and spending time at Ross Elementary School, which he once attended.

Ill always have Highland Park in me, Wilson said. I try to instill in them (the players) how it is in college. I try to make it to the games Im still connected to Highland Park. Topekas my home its where Im from, and I can never forget that.

While he still hopes to someday play professional basketball in the United States, he said it is OK if he doesn't because he enjoys what he is doing now.

"I feel very blessed to go and see different lifestyles and other parts of the world and meet new people," he said. "Signing a contract to play another year is one of my memorable moments because I understand how hard it is to land a job professionally in basketball.

God has blessed me to continue my professional career, and Im thankful for the opportunity of having the chance to play beyond high school and college."
