Ilze Auzina-Luneau came to United States from Latvia, small country in Eastern Europe. Ilze was an All-American basketball player at the College of Saint Rose, 1993-1997, and graduated with a finance and international business degree in 1997.
Ilze received her MBA degree from SUNY, Albany in 2002. After finishing her degree and having two daughters, Ilze is performing basketball shows full-time year round.
Ilze started seriously practicing basketball ballhandling tricks after graduating from college. She took after Matt, seeing the fun and enjoyment he was having with the ballhandling and entertainment shows. However, Ilze had a lot of previous basketball ballhandling experience, since back in Latvia she played on a team that performed basketball ballhandling clinics and entertainment shows since the age of nine.
Ilze performs the shows, does all the web page design, and all the marketing for the shows while taking care of her two beautiful little girls at home – so she knows a thing or two about “working hard”, “balancing it all out” and “making your dreams come true”. She hopes she can inspire you too to never give up and go for your dreams in spite all the obstacles on the way!
“I am a New Born Christian, and I feel a strong direction from God to use my basketball skills to spread God’s Word and encourage youngsters to accept Jesus as their Savior and continuously find God’s Will for your life by reading the Bible, listening to preachers, having a personal relationship with Jesus and God through prayer, and applying everything you learn from God’s Word to your life every single day.”
“I would highly recommend the Luneaus for any camp. The Luneaus are not just great entertainment, but also give a valuable message to the campers.” Paul Hewitt, Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Georgia Tech
“Ilze Luneau captivated the Carrier Dome crowd during her halftime performance during a Syracuse University men’s home basketball game. Her amazing ball handling and juggling skills are a treat for young and old. Her two adorable daughters provided the high point of the performance.” Pat Campbell, Managing Director of the Carrier Dome.
