ARGENTINA – The Bahamas National Basketball team ran through Cuba 109 to 68 in their opening game of the pre-Olympic qualifying tournament Monday night.

The NBA players led the way for team 242. Buddy Hield had 24 points adding, six rebounds and five assists. DeAndre Ayton dominated the inside with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Eric Gordon had 17 points and four assists. Franco Miller added 18 off the bench. 

Meanwhile, Head Coach of Ole Miss’ Women’s Basketball team and Grand Bahama native Yolett McCuin says our current men’s national basketball team has potential to do well.

Coach Yo served as an assistant coach of the team last year but due to a prior commitment had to rescind.

The team – currently in Argentina – consists of the likes of Buddy Hield, DeAndre Ayton, Eric Gordon – and is ranked number one in the tournament’s power rankings.
