Scotland impressed in Cherbourg

England returned disappointed from Cherbourg’s International Junior Basketball Tournament yesterday, with a 6th place overall finish (out of 8). The better news though, is that both the other British teams entered did considerably better, with Scotland finishing in an impressive 3rd and Manchester in 4th place respectively.

Random Thoughts

  • A disappointing tournament for England Under 18’s (’92 born) in my opinion, not necessarily in their overall standing, but comparatively, finishing below a British club side in Manchester, and the Scottish side (Scotland’s population is 5million, and as far as I’m aware has a similar basketball setup to England).
  • Should be noted that Manchester’s roster had a number of ’91 born players (4). All other teams were 1992 born or younger.
  • Should also be noted I think England were using this more as part of the squad selection process.
  • Nice to see two Scots (Lee Reilly and Alisdair Frasier) making the all tournament team.
  • You can read England Basketball’s report here.
  • If you’ve forgotten, check out the full roster for the England team.
  • Good to see John Stewart leading the England team against Austria (despite the loss), I was impressed with him a couple of months ago as he won the MVP whilst leading the Sharks to the U18 Cup, expect some video in the near future.
  • Will see if I can get my hands on full box scores.
