Phillips Talks BBA National Select Team Tour

The Bermuda Basketball Association's Senior Men's National Select Team competed in the Dominican Republic with a series of games.

Player/Coach Sullivan Phillips said, “Although the results didn't go as we would have liked, the primary goals of developing and finding new talent to gear up for upcoming National Team events were met.

I was impressed with the showing, but also very much aware that there is work to be done.

I am excited about the future and the development tour was a great tool to help identify where the program needs to strengthen its style of play.

I will continue to strive to make the Senior Men's National Team a force to reckon with in the future as they proudly represent Bermuda.”

Bermuda Under 17 Fall Twice Again in Canada

The Bermuda Basketball Association’s Under-17 Men's National Select continued competing in Newmarket, Ontario in Canada.

However the day did not bode well for Bermuda. A number of key players were unavailable due to a host of unfortunate injuries forcing the coaching staff to reshuffle possible starting lineups.

Team Gators dominated the offensive and defensive rebounds giving them extra shot attempts and also putting players in foul trouble. Bermuda tried to counter but the constant defensive pressure forced numerous turnovers and led to easy baskets for the other team.

Final score: Gators - 87 Bermuda - 41

Player of the game was Jake Hines who scored all of his 11 points in the last 4 minutes of the game. Honorable mention Quinton Husband for his relentless hustle on defense.
Bermuda then showed much better effort and a willingness to carry out the coaching staff's game plan. Unfortunately, being undermanned at guard forced players to be put in positions they were not comfortable with. This led to a number of turnovers which the other team turned into easy points. There wasn't much difference in the second half except for the fact that the emphasis was on playing better team defence and reducing the amount of unforced turnovers.

Final Score - Bermuda 28 - Alpha High Performance 52

Player of the game: Quinton Husband. Honorable mention: Jacinto Saints (9 points) & DeNash Davis - defensive boards and 2 blocks.

Bermuda Under 17 Fall Twice in Canada
The Bermuda Basketball Association’s Under-17 Men's National Select began competing in Newmarket, Ontario in Canada.

The Bermuda Under 17 team played a double header falling twice.

Game 1 was a good indicator of the competition Bermuda would face as they went down 46 – 41 to the Aurora Spartans.

Game 1 was close throughout despite the many turnovers, some unforced errors. Bermuda had a little trouble with the pace and pressure on the ball, but the effort on defense kept the game close.

Bermuda trailed early in the falling 14-3 in the 1st quarter. Guard play was a key to the deficit as poor decision-making led to numerous turnovers which lead to easy points for the defense.

Bermuda was led by Jacinto Saints with 15 points, while Cameron Basden added 14 points.

Game 2, saw Bermuda go down 65 – 46 to Richmond, Bermuda came out with a better sense of urgency early in the game, but shots would not go down and the other team scored easily in transition.

In both games, Bermuda regrouped with intense team defense in the second half which fueled their offense, especially in the second game where they cut a 20 point deficit down to 7.

Despite the losses, players feel good about their progress understanding the need to be players actually played with more consistent in their effort and execution. With players now realizing how competitive basketball is here, the hope us that it will assist them in raising their game.
