The FIBA Oceania Management Committee last week voted to allocate the 2008 FIBA Oceania Youth Tournament to the Guam Basketball Federation, following consideration of expressions of interest from American Samoa, Fiji and Papua New Guinea. In making the announcement, FIBA Oceania confirmed that the event in 2008 will be for boys and girls 19 years and under (using the FIBA cut-off dates) that is to say, boys and girls born on or after January 1st 1989 or later.

The Guam Basketball Federation propose to stage the competition in the Fieldhouse of the University of Guam, venue for the basketball competition in the 1999 SPG's and to house athletes and officials at Ladera Towers, a resort hotel complex only 15 minutes drive from the competition venue. The event will be staged in either the 2nd or 3rd week in June
In announcing the decision today, FIBA Oceania Secretary General Steve Smith said: “Taking the 7th Youth Basketball Tournament to Guam will complete the circle of hosting regions since the event began in Fiji in 1997. The event has been played in Polynesia, Melanesia and Anglonesia. Taking the event to Guam will allow Micronesia to have its turn at hosting the regional competition. The Guam Basketball federation has supported the event in 2004 and 2006 with their participation in events in Australia and New Zealand and we are hopeful that taking the event to Micronesia in 2008 will be an incentive for greater participation by basketball federations from that part of our zone.”
It is hoped that with advanced notice of the location of the next Youth Tournament and clear statement of age category, basketball federations can begin the task of identifying and training the group of boys and girls who might form their national squads for the event and plan the fundraising efforts needed to get their teams to Guam.

Wins for Royals and Cougars - 11 months ago
After losing three straight games, the Notre Dame Royals on Friday beat the St. John's Knights 38-29 in the Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam Girls Basketball League to get back on the right track. Tied 20-20 at the half, then only up 28-27 after the third quarter, it was a last-minute momentum push in the final quarter that gave the Royals the victory. An aggressive defense was key, holding the Knights to only two points, while the Royals scored 10   [read more]
