Coach Roderick Spencer
In August the Bermuda Basketball Association's Men's National team will take part in the HaiCo World Indigenous Basketball Challenge.

Bermuda is one of eight International teams to feature in the tournament and Men's National coach Roderick Spencer said, "This tour will allow us to look at several new faces and the focus will be on building for the future."

Spencer went on to say, "The team will have a base of veteran players with a healthy addition of new faces and sophomore/Jr players that will take on bigger roles."

"Highlighting the new players will be Mykal Glasgow, I am very excited about this young man and his future. We have several young men that are about to follow Glasgow into the Men's Team in the very near future," Spencer went on to say.

Spencer concluded, "Bermuda Basketball has a very bright future ahead of them."

Team Hurricane Announce International Showcase
Hope all is well. Team Hurricane announces the participation of its student-athletes in the Alexander Basketball Academy's Global Squad summer intensive basketball program and its Global Squad 3rd Annual International Showcase in which our student-athletes were able to compete and play in front of college coaches.

Team Hurricane Basketball Academy continues to make its mark amongst the international hoops global community. For the second year in a row, three players from Team Hurricane Basketball Academy have been invited to participate in Global Squad, an intensive summer basketball program run by the Alexander Basketball Academy. Bermuda student-athletes, Bryce Gonsalves, Jorel Smith, and Rye Ahronson are attending the month long academy held at The Hill School, in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. The elite basketball training program began June 27th and will continue until July 27th.

Each summer the Global Squad provides international student-athletes, representing dozens of countries, with an opportunity to get recruited by U.S. colleges and universities, by putting them in front of college coaches, while providing elite training required to play at the next level. The Global Squad has an excellent recipe for success when it comes to helping international basketball players get recruited to play in the United States. In four years they have helped more than 40 players get recruited by colleges, universities, junior colleges and top prep schools.

Team Hurricane players are being trained by a coaching staff that consists of professional players, current and former NCAA basketball players. Global Squad also has several NCAA college coaches and strength training experts on staff. Such a diverse staff makes for a unique environment for Bermuda student-athletes to learn the game and advance their skills.

For Team Hurricane’s Rye Ahronson this is his first summer taking part in the Global Squad intensive program. “Global Squad is helping me to improve my game. The coaches are very demanding, but we are learning about responsibility and how to push ourselves. It’s been an awesome experience so far. I’m thankful for Team Hurricane providing me with this opportunity.”

In addition to having Rye, Jorel and Bryce participating in this elite summer intensive program, additional members of Team Hurricane were able to take part in a specialized recruiting event organized by the Alexander Basketball Academy – the Global Squad Third Annual International Showcase, held July 6 thru July 8 also at the renowned preparatory academy, The Hill School, in Pottstown, PA.

Christian Liyanage, Yontz Sutton, Jalen Currin and Kobie Reid got to experience the college basketball recruiting scene that takes place during the all-important July Evaluation Period. This group of players joined up with Team Hurricane student-athletes, Bryce Gonsalves, Jorel Smith, and Rye Ahronson who are already attending the month long academy designed to provide international student-athletes with an opportunity to get recruited by U.S. colleges and universities.

WBBL Announce Changes to League

The Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL) is delighted to be making a number of changes for 2016-17, which are expected to add even more excitement and momentum to the impressive evolution of the top flight of the women’s game in the UK.

Bermudian Jenaya Wade-Fray plays for the Brixton Topcats in the league.

With two successful seasons now in the books, the third will see an extended 33-week season and one that will involve newcomers Oaklands Wolves and Basketball Scotland.

Tipping off at the start of October, the season will open with the fourth edition of the Betty Codona Classic.

There will also be a significant buzz around the launch of a whole new WBBL Cup competition.

This will see the last two teams standing in the competition make a trip to the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham next January, to compete as part of a super BBL and WBBL Cup double-bill.

The new WBBL Cup will be a straight knockout competition, with the lowest placed WBBL teams from last season in Cardiff Met Archers and Manchester Mystics playing in Round 1 along with rookies Oaklands Wolves and Basketball Scotland.

The changes mean that there will be a second mouth-watering BBL and WBBL Finals double-bill, with the conclusion of the WBBL Trophy taking place alongside the BBL Trophy Final at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow next March.

This season’s WBBL Trophy will see all 10 WBBL clubs enter in a geographically split, group format. Five teams will compete in each pool, playing one game against each rival either home or away. The top two from Group A and B will progress directly to the Semi-Finals in a crossover A1 v B2 and B1 v A2 setup.

The joint Finals theme will then continue at The 02 Arena in London next May, when for the second time in a row, the WBBL season will reach a climax at the same time as the BBL, with a Play-Off Finals double bill in the capital.
