See Aussie college stars and NBA rookie Nathan Jawai in an ESPN special

ESPN Australia HD and ESPN's Pac Rim network will air Aussie Hoops America: Tournament Special beginning on March 13th with encore airs through March 20th writes

Hosted by Mark Brown from the campus of St. Mary's College in Moraga, California, the show will breakdown what Aussies will be playing in the NCAA Tournament and what Aussies will be watching from home. The program will include exclusive interviews with Patty Mills, Carlin Hughes and Lucas Walker at St. Mary's.

We also speak to Utah's Luke Nevill who's having a breakout season with the Utes who are making a strong bid for the NCAA Tournament.

We introduced you to Ater Majok before he joined Connecticut's squad on our Mid-season Special. Now that he's on the team, we travel to UConn's campus for a follow up interview. As the Huskies prepare for a national title run their coaches tell us why Majok is playing a big role in the team's success despite being ineligible for action until December of 2009.

Plus an exclusive interview with Raptor's rookie Nathan Jawai from New York's Madison Square Garden. We briefly step away from the college scene to check in with Nate and see how things are progressing for the big man in the NBA.
