NMIâ€™s young cagers, age 15 and under will face their counterparts from Guam, Palau and Yap, in the Micronesian Basketball 15U Tournament that Saipan will host from July 12 to 18 at the Gilbert C. Ada Gym.
He also said that BANMI is still communicating with the basketball officials in Marshall Islands and Phonpei with regards to their interest to join.
â€œSo far, Guam, Palau and Yap have confirmed their participation but, possibly, the Marshall Islands and Phonpei will play as well, but we are still working it out,â€ Rangamar said in an interview.
The MBT, Rangamar said is held annually in different Micronesian islands and the hosting of it is decided routinely among the participating territories.
The age division also goes routinely.
Last year, the MBT was held among players, 19-and-under years old. Next year, they plan to hold it for 17-and-under.
Guam and Palau have always been regular fixtures of the regional basketball tournament that brings Micronesian islands together in sports.
