    When Pedro Ragazzo arrived in Malvern last summer as a foreign exchange student, it wasn’t the Brazilian’s first trip to the states.

    He had been to America twice before. Once on a family vacation and the other? To attend a basketball camp in North Carolina.

    Why North Carolina?

    “I love the Coach K,” Ragazzo said, referring to legendary Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, who hosted the camp. “I love basketball.”
