Ross looks to make most out of next opportunity
All Matt Ross has ever wanted was the chance to prove he's a professional-caliber basketball player.
The Dixon native is getting it over the course of the next 2 weeks.
Ross was drafted by a coach in the Australian professional league for a showcase event July 10-17 in Las Vegas. Should the 6-foot-8 forward impress Joey Wright of the Adelaide 36ers, a professional contract Down Under may be in the big man's future.
