YSE Lions is a travel team out of the Dutch Speaking part of Belgium. The club has two teams which flew into Atlanta and has so far been at places such as Duke and UNC before coming to Dothan. They played in Dothan at Northview high school Friday night against the Wolverines and Deep South. The end result was both local Dothan teams came out on top with Deep South winning 69-49 and the Wolverines winning 79-43. Both sides say the playing style of American versus Belgium basketball is very different.
"Here they play more physically, more athletic and in Belgium they play more like a team.... try to find the open man and like here they try to go one on one,” said Mark Peeters.
"We play a little bit faster.....and I think that was the issue with us going back and forth,” said Dwlan Glover.
