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 three girls, 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 has performed at many half-time shows at college, NBA and WNBA games, Final Four, NBA All-Star, many school assemblies and many Christian outreach events (especially Upward Basketball leagues). Ilze has also appeared on ESPN, Ellene Degeneres and Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
"You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:14)
