Luvabulls Visit Holland

Luvabulls spend a week in Holland

After a five year absence, the Luvabulls headed back to Holland in late December for Amsterdam Haarlem Basketball Week (AHBW), a well-established international basketball tournament. It marked the 14th invitation by the AHBW as they have embraced the Luvabulls as part of their entertainment family.

The Luvabulls, who were in Holland from Dec. 24-31, spent Christmas together and shared it with new friends from England, Whales, Turkey, Greece, Serbia, Brussels, Canada, and of course, a few Americans who are living overseas.

"We really enjoy being a part of AHBW. The Luvabulls are so well received and so well known in Holland, it's almost like being at the United Center,” said Luvabulls Director Cathy Core. “Everyone loves the Bulls and they are enthralled watching the Luvabulls perform.”

“We have the additional pleasure of having Miss Illinois USA, our own Luvabull, Shanon Lersch as part of our squad,” Core added. “She represented the State of Illinois very well and the AHBW organization was thrilled to meet her, as were so many of the Dutch basketball fans."

In addition to a very busy performance schedule at the tournament, the Luvabulls were also able to get in some sightseeing before returning to Chicago.
