Box Hill Senior Secondary College has churned out more than 120 US college players including Ben Simmons who was a regular student at the nondescript public school in Melbourne's suburbs.

"There's no school in Australia that produces as many players as this school produces.", said Californian-born coach Mr Goorjian — brother of former Australian Boomers coach Brian Goorjian.

Director of Student Management Andrea Wood is keen to stress that what happens in the classroom is just as important.

"We really emphasise that they're student athletes, so their academics come first and then the athletics come alongside it," she told 7.30.

"So you find that they're really motivated in the classroom to achieve academically and then on court as well."
