CNMI National Men's Basketball coach Rufino Aguon wants no less than 100 percent from his players when they compete in the 6th Micronesian Games set here on Saipan from June 23 to July 3. source Mark Rabago for SaipanTribune

"Training is going on okay. The guys are already running about seven kilometers aside from running sprints. I am holding off the naming of the guys until the end of April. I can only say that 10 are the ones coming, some more than others. This frustrates me, we are the home team and we should defend with all our might-nothing less than 100-percent effort," he said.
The head coach of recently crowned 6th Annual UFO Inter-Organizational Basketball League champion SIP also said that even though Guam is the team to beat in the quadrennial event, the CNMI shouldn't discount other basketball powerhouses in the region.
"Kosrae, they won silver the last games; Palau, just coming off the Mini Games where they did pretty good; Pohnpei, they won silver the last 22-and-Under in Palau; Marshall is always dangerous. Guam is still the favorite but we should not count out the other nations," he said.
Aguon said the CNMI team may not be the tallest, fastest, and most talented team in the upcoming Games, but he would try to make sure of thing-the host team would be the most prepared and physically fit of the bunch.
"It will come down to the team that is fittest, execute under pressure, and with a winning attitude would prevail. I want us to be that team. But we must not wait and hope. We must work harder than any other team," he said.
