The Belize National U-18 3×3 basketball team returned to Belize on Monday, September 2, after placing 4th in the U-18 3×3 FIBA Americas Championship held in Washington DC. It is a remarkable achievement for our Belize team, who defeated powerhouse Puerto Rico and then Guatemala in order to advance to the semifinal round. Belize then lost, 21-16, to top ranked USA, and then lost to Canada in the bronze medal game.
With the 4th place finish, the Belize National U-18 3×3 basketball team has qualified to participate in the U-18 3×3 World Championship to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from September 26-29.
Belize is also scheduled to participate in the U-14 COCABA Championship to be held in Honduras later this year.
