Basketball

Bradleon McDonald is the latest Bahamian basketball prospect to follow in the Basketball Without Borders (BWB) pipeline.

McDonald was one of 60 prospects named to the NBA and FIBA’s 13th edition of the Basketball Without Borders Americas showcase.

The event will feature prospects from 17 countries and territories across Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean who will travel to São Paulo, Brazil, from May 17 to 20.

McDonald, a 17-year-old student at Tabernacle Academy, has also been a member of the Bahamas Junior National Team for the 2022 U15 Centrobasket Championships in Puerto Rico.

He averaged 6.8 points and 6.4 rebounds through five games, highlighted by a 10-point, 9-rebound performance against the Dominican Republic.

The campers will be coached by current and former NBA and FIBA players, most notably, Bahamian senior men’s national team head coach and Golden State Warriors assistant Chris DeMarco.

Players at the camp will include Nick Richards (Charlotte Hornets) and Paul Reed (Philadelphia 76ers).

Since 2001, 116 former campers have advanced to the NBA or WNBA. There have been 73 BWB camps in 49 cities across 33 countries on six continents.

Caribbean Hoopfest

Caribbean Hoopfest is set to return to The Bahamas, continuing its mission of increasing exposure for local student athletes.

The organization hosted several showcases this week ahead of the tournament on August 16-18 at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Caribbean Hoopfest organizer, Donald Francois, said the event continues to return to The Bahamas for many reasons.

Francois, who also coaches at Archbishop Molloy in New York City, said fans and players can expect high-level competition at this year’s event.

This year’s event will feature 19U, 16U, and 14U divisions.

Several local high school and club teams will compete against visiting teams from the New York and Tri-State area.

WNBA

Jonquel Jones and the New York Liberty moved to 2-0 on the WNBA season.

Jones finished with a double-double, 14 points and 10 rebounds in the Liberty’s 102-66 win over the Indiana Fever last night at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indiana.

The Liberty opened the game with a 25-16 lead at the end of the first and led 47-31 at the half.

Indiana cut it to 11 headed into the fourth, but the Liberty opened the fourth on a 12-0 run to put the game away.

The Liberty will host the rematch Saturday in New York.

10YS Plays Of The Week

You made it to the weekend, time to celebrate…

Let’s get started at number 5.

Thursday we reported that BJ Murray was working his way out of a slump. I think it’s officially over.

Murray with two home runs last night. First, a two-run shot in the 4th, then a solo shot in the sixth.

Cubs win 10-4.

At number 4, Jonquel Jones is a bully. Washington defenders found out the hard way.

The board, the putback, the three-point play to give New York the lead for good. More on this game later.

Coming in at number 3, at the SEC Champs, Wanya McCoy books his ticket to Paris. Takes the silver medal in 19.93 seconds.

Second best time in NCAA Division I and the number 4 time in Gator history.

At number 2, we know you saw the video on the 10YS socials. JJ already laid the gauntlet down as the best shooter in The Bahamas. She showed the Mystic why in her debut.

Buddy Hield has 24 hours to respond.

And at number 1, no headwind to worry about this time around. The dominant season for Denisha Cartwright continued at the NSIC Conference Champs.

Three gold medals, but the one that mattered the most – Olympic qualification in the 100MH in 12.60 seconds.
