National Team Preparing for Hard 2015
The Bermuda Basketball Association’s Men’s National team is in full flow with a training session inside the Dellwood Middle School gymnasium as their first opponents for the year declare they are ready.
President of the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) Nigel Hinds confirmed that all systems are in place for Guyana to host Bermuda in March at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
The GABF boss said that the series will be played between March 10th and 15th.
With the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Senior Men’s and Women’s Championships set for June 9th – 20th this year, Bermuda will have the perfect opportunity to see how well its best outfits will stack up against another regional counterpart.
In a letter sent last October, Bermuda Basketball Association President Gregory Todd had written to Hinds, stating Bermuda’s National team’s profound gratitude for accepting the GABF’s request to travel to Guyana.
The last time Guyana played Bermuda was at the 2011 CBC Championships in Bahamas where Guyana lost 68-58, with Bermuda placing fifth while Guyana finished two places below them. However, under Hinds’ presidency, Guyana were able to send one of their best Men’s team to the 2014 Championship and were able to place a creditable fifth when the games were held in the British Virgin Island of Tortola.
