Chad stands tall

Some of Cayman’s best basketball players will soon be on display.

The 2011 national men’s basketball team will be taking part in exhibition matches next month. The proposed dates are 9 and 12 June at Camana Bay’s Arts and Recreation Centre.

The contests are part of the build-up towards Cayman’s involvement in the Island Games and the Caribbean Basketball Confederation Senior Championships this summer. Most of the names on the team are not strangers to local basketball and are currently involved in the 2011 national men’s basketball league put on by the Cayman Islands Basketball Association. Among them is 6ft 6in forward Chad Leslie who played for the Heat.

National men’s team coach Daniel Augustine states there are also plans for a mini-camp in July. The plan is for the public to meet the players and the kids to receive a series of drills to improve their basketball skills.
