Local basketball is seeking fresh props in the Bahamas.
The Cayman Islands Basketball Association is backing John Gray High School as it sends a boys Under-19 team to Nassau for a series of exhibition games. The trip was slated for 12-16 February.
John Gray coach Errol Grey states the side will be prepared for the matches.
“The preparation has been good, I’ve had invaluable help from association coach Daniel Augustine,” Grey said. “The boys are easy to coach and there’s a group of seven of them that are excellent in terms of dedication.
“In break times, they would play ball. They’re more dedicated and serious than other kids. A lot of them have competed in the U-19 league. It was just a matter of fine-tuning their skills with coaching and practice. They can be an excellent group of Cayman Islands representatives one day at the senior level.
“They are ready, it’s just a matter of execution. They got to play what they have learned.”
Representing Cayman will be Reuben Barnes, Joshua Ebanks-Brown, Daviel Foster, Douglas Henkis, Cameron Hydes, Arin Taylor, Alexander Thompson and Jamel Winton.
All will be facing Nassau institutions in Charles Irvin Gibson Senior High School, Donald W. Davis Junior High School and Aquinas College.
