World Wide Warriors: Los Angeles, California
Keith Shamburger is all about basketball.
When asked what the most popular sport is in his home area of Southern California, he responded basketball. When asked what the state of California is most famous for, he replied basketball.
Shamburger is from Los Angeles, where he grew up playing with and against some of the best players in the country. The 6-foot junior is in his first season with the Hawaii basketball team after playing his first two years of college at San Jose State. In accordance with NCAA transfer rules, he will have to redshirt this season.
Although he will not suit up for games during the 2012-13 season, he will be allowed to practice with the team, and will undoubtedly be the leader of the scout team.
Shamburger likes to talk about California basketball, but not so much when it comes to Southern California beaches. Although he has been in Hawaii for less than two months, he has already developed an appreciation for the island beaches.
“The water out here is real clear; the water back home is real dirty,” he said. “I don’t even like to go to the beach and get in the water back home because the water is so dirty,but I love to go to the beach here.”

There was recent discussion on this site about Tim Tams from Australia, and thanks to Aussie Mum, we now have a better idea.
Michael Harper – I guess we can call him “Aussie Son” in this case – received a bag of authentic Tim Tams from Australia recently, and shared with teammates Christian Standhardinger and Davis Rozitis.
Perhaps the best way to describe it is a chocolate-covered cookie, although that probably does not do it justice.
“The King of the Beach approves this chocolate,” Standhardinger said.
