With the countdown to the third Micronesian Basketball Tournament down to a little more than five months, the hopefuls who aim at representing the CNMI in the prestigious competition are currently hitting the pavement as part of their conditioning program that will last a while before any would work together in the actual hard court.
This according to Basketball Association of the Northern Mariana Islands vice president Elias Rangamar, who said that the players are currently focusing on improving their endurance and strength.
"We've set up a program for them where they'll be running and lifting weights," he said. "Before touching the ball and working on any plays on the court, they must be ready and physically fit."
The conditioning program is expected to last about three months.
Rangamar also added that due to previous commitments made prior to the player selection for the tryouts, several of the players have opted to turn down the invitation, but remains upbeat with the remaining bunch.
We have some guys who have already committed themselves to other things," he said. "But we still have a solid cast to select from. Things should be okay. Everyone must make use of the little time we have and prepare the best we can."
It is not known who among the 28-strong list that was released late last year has withdrawn.
The list includes centers Abong Camacho, Oscar Ada, Jawn Joyner, and Richard Brostrum, forwards Ambrose Ogumoro, Sivas Awes, Peter Camacho, Edsel Mendoza, Gabriel White, Shane Ogumoro, Steve Rasa, Gyles Ruluked, and Jeremy Sablan, and guard Jester Garcia, Ponce Rasa, Mark Wallace, Ed Diaz, Tony Diaz, Junior Renguul, Dave Palacios, and John Sablan.
The list also included Tinian players John Santos, Keith Nabors, Juanis King, Frank Santos, Fritz San Nicholas, and Jesse Manibusan.
The tournament will be held in Guam from July 5-10. Expected to stand in the way of Team CNMI are the Marshall Islands, host Guam, Palau, Nauru, Kiribati, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk, and Yap.
Games will be played at the University of Guam Fieldhouse and the George Washington High School Gymnasium.
