SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO – The first window of the FIBA Americup qualifiers tips off Thursday night and Team Bahamas is on the road to take on Puerto Rico.

John-Marc is on the ground in San Juan.

You know I like to measure sports by the intangibles, so I need to the vibe check right now for Team Bahamas.

I mean the vibe checks are always there, we are islands boys if you want to say it, the team is always upbeat and happy playing their music in practice so I don’t see in any way shape or form how Team Bahamas isn’t confident going into this game. 

We’ve talked about the new roster additions, what about the new additions to the coaching staff.

We interviewed Eron Wednesday and now we have his brother as well, Evan, who is going to be the first assistant coach with Moses Johnson. He knows how important this is just not for his family but for The Bahamas.

There are always a lot of moving parts when it comes to The Bahamas Senior Men’s National Team but we were able to speak to LJ Rose about the roster construction.

Hugh Campbell Basketball Tournament

The field of 23 teams is now down to 2. The Sunland Stingers will once again face off with the C.I. Gibson Rattlers to decide the Hugh Campbell title.

Both semifinals this morning were rematches of their respective leagues. 

In the GSSSA Finals rematch the Rattlers defeated the Anatol Rodgers T’wolves 61-51.

Tashon Butler scored 27, while Stevankho Jacques had 12 points and 16 rebounds.

The GBSSA final also had the same result here at Hugh Campbell when the Stingers defeated the Tabernacle Falcons 66-57.

The Stingers are going for their third consecutive Hugh Campbell title while the Rattlers are chasing their sixth title in school history.
