With one team in a rebuilding stage and two others falling short of advancing to the next round, national team director Mario Bowleg gave the three squads that competed on the regional level a C grade.
Bowleg who also sits on the executive board as the first vice president in the Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF) said the teams played as best they could, and represented the country at a high level. He noted that the two junior boys' team hit a wall in their tournaments and were unable to get over the hump.
"On the average, all of the teams were able to compete as we expected them to do so overall the entire program inclusive of the three teams will get a C grade," said Bowleg. "We were able to send three junior teams, both male teams and a female team, to three different competitions this year. This year is actually for juniors, so we sent our under 16 and 17 boys and the under 17 girls. Considering the level of competition that three competed in was very high.
"The under 16 boys, they played at the Tournament of Americas and the under 17 girls and boys [played] at the Centrobasket Championships. The competition at the Tournament of Americas is always high, and the boys' team is consistent in terms of advancing to this tournament. The under-17 didn't qualify but they did very well. It is rare that you see a team who ended the tournament 3-1 and not advance to the next round. That team finished fifth and I encouraged the coaches to continue to work the players because they can be invited to the next round if another team pulls out. So we want them to stay focused, and we've asked the coaches to stay in contact with all of the players."
The Bahamas placed seventh overall at the under 16 championships, which was played in Punta Del Este, Uruguay in June. The team finished the tournament with a 1-4 win/loss record. As for the under 17 boys, who competed at the Centrobasket and closed with a 3-1 record for fifth overall. Dominican Republic won the tournament, followed by Puerto Rico, Mexico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
The under 17 girls were eighth in their tournament, according to Bowleg that national program is in a rebuilding stage.
He said: "There is a new coaching staff, new program, so it is more of a rebuilding stage for this team. The change in faces on both the coaching and playing staff brings new life to the program. We know that they have the ability to do better and we will see the changes in the upcoming months. Next year is the senior's tour, so none of the junior team's will be playing but we would like for them to continue training."
The Bahamas will send teams to both the Caribbean Basketball Championships (CBC) and the Centrobasket Championships.

Roger Rosa is 29 and does not have a captivating boxing record. In fact, the Brazilian fighter is just 5-4-1-1(no contest). His record certainly does not jump out at you, earmarking a pugilist of note.
He is just 5-4, rather short. His Bahamian opponent for the big rebound boxing show in the country, scheduled for Friday, December 13, is national super featherweight champion Meacher Major. Not particularly tall either, Major however has a three -inch height advantage over Rosa.
Major is 20-6-1-1 (no contest) and as such is the much more experienced fighter.
So what makes this upcoming bout so compelling that the expectation is that it will lead to a renaissance of professional boxing in the country? On the surface, little about Rosa seems to point towards thrills and fireworks coming out of the bout with Major.
After closely viewing the Brazilian when he came in town to be present for the press conference Friday, November 22 at Mario's Bowling and Entertainment Palace, most observers however came away with the view that Rosa will give Major a whole lot to figure out.
It was not so much what came out of the mouth of the compact and diminutive boxer, Rosa. It was simply the conviction with which he spoke.
He did say a lot that could be considered mere rhetorical, promotional "buzz comments" that rankled Bahamians present at the press conference. He appeared to have little concern for Major being the kind of opponent who can beat him, given the general national environment we call the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. He actually said there is "no way a guy from a little country" like The Bahamas can beat him.
He tried to be diplomatic and render respect to Major, noting his experience. Nevertheless, Rosa was verbally
aggressive. He compared himself to Mike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion who chewed up and spat out a lot of opponents taller than he.
Physically, Rosa looks to be a package that could spell a lot of trouble, if Major's strategy is not able to counter that of his opponent. For instance, as the shorter foe and based on his announced ring demeanor, Rosa will seek to carry the fight to Major.
Fighting in the backyard of the local favorite, he well understands that he has to make a huge impression to ensure victory. Rosa called Meacher a "predictable, orthodox" fighter.
Hype aside however, there is another factor that weighs in heavily on the December 13th match.
The fighters are each coming off two consecutive defeats. They both will be confronted by a big decision if saddled with another defeat. Meacher, for his part, understands very well what is in front of him.
"I am seriously going into this fight. I have my plans for a post career but it is in me to see just where do I go. My plan is to win big against Rosa. I am focused only on winning," said Major.
Underneath the surface of preparation for December 13, no doubt is the knowledge that this is crunch time and a third consecutive defeat will be a tough matter for him to deal with. It will indeed,
Rosa on the other hand, needs a victory to boost his confidence that at 29, he still can craft a career of note in boxing.
So in essence, Major and Rosa are confronted with a must-win situation. This is the key aspect that will likely result in a war on the night of December 13 in the Rainforest Theatre.
The ingredients are such that the bout is likely to be a blockbuster, a boost for boxing in The Bahamas, no matter who wins.

This year (based on the events that will become very closely connected to The Bahamas and its sporting fraternity) could very well go down as one of the most significant in the history of this country. In yesterday's column in this space, the wide variety of sports events on schedule for 2014 was detailed.
There is another milestone of note that readers are invited to reflect upon, in 2014. We go down memory lane today, to 50 years ago. Indeed, another big aspect of 2014 is the fact that this year marks the golden anniversary of the first gold medal won at the Olympics by The Bahamas.
It's incredible, but yes, it's a half of a century since Durward Knowles as skipper, and Cecil Cooke as his crew member, captured the Star Class gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. The games took place in October of 1964. Although Tokyo was the official host city in Japan, with the Olympics, other cities are included as locations for certain disciplines. This was so in 1964 and in Japan, it was decided that an Olympic yachting harbor would be constructed. The work began in 1961, and in time for the games, the Sagami Bay in Enoshima was ready for Knowles, Cooke and the rest of the best international sailors the world over, at the time. The cost was $6,027,778.
There they were, our representatives, Knowles and Cooke in the Star Class craft Gem, carrying the participation number 4789. At the end of the competition, the pair had performed in a manner to make history for the tiny country called The Bahamas Islands, still under the jurisdiction of Great Britain. It was The Bahamas first, followed by the United States (Richard Sterns and Lynn Williams); and Sweden (Pelle Pettersson and Holger Sundstrom). For the international sailing establishment in The Bahamas, success against the finest sailors in the world was nothing new.
Knowles with Sloane Farrington had achieved the first national sporting milestone of great prominence 17 years earlier when they won the Star Class World Championship. Also, the same duo, Knowles and Farrington, had given The Bahamas its first Olympic medal, a bronze at the Melbourne, Australia Games of 1956.
Accordingly in 1964, Knowles was without a doubt at the very top echelon of international sailing in the world, so, the win was not a surprise in that circle. For The Bahamas though, the stage was officially set and the planks were put in place for the country's anointment as one of the most powerful little nations in the sports world.
It would be another 36 years before The Bahamas won another Olympic gold medal and the occasion would be with the flag of an independent nation flying in the stadium in Sydney, Australia. The Original Golden Girls (Pauline Davis, Chandra Sturrup, Savatheda Fynes, Debbie Ferguson and Eldece Clarke) won the sprint gold medal in track at the 2000 Olympics. Years later, following the banning of American Marion Jones and the long administrative and legal procedures, the second place finisher for the 200 meters in 2000, our very own Pauline Davis, was awarded the gold medal.
In 2004, the diminutive but powerful Tonique Williams-Darling captured the 400 meters gold in Athens, Greece. In 2012, the Golden Knights (Chris Brown, Demetrius Pinder, Michael Mathieu and Ramon Miller) dominated the 1,600 meters relay series for the gold medal, in London, England. What Knowles and Cooke started 50 years ago, heightened the reputation of The Bahamas in world sports. Today, The Bahamas is a definite gold medal contender, whenever the Olympics roll around.
Cecil Cooke is no longer with us, neither is Sloane Farrington nor the two prime catalysts of international sailing in the country, Sir Stafford Sands and Sir Roland Symonette.
Fifty years later however, historic facts verify that the aforementioned stalwarts spearheaded the early sports power movement in this country.
Sir Durward, at 96, is still with us. God bless him! A nation should salute the memory of that golden moment 50 years ago in the Sagami Bay, on the coast of the Japanese city, Enoshima.

Two Bahamian students receive National Honor Society induction in Florida
A pair of Bahamian students at the Vanguard School in Lake Wales, Florida, were recently selected for initiation into the National Honor Society (NHS).
Cole Carey, son of Mario and Venita Carey of Nassau, and Danielle Bannister, daughter of Desmond and Donna Bannister of Nassau, both received their golden NHS pins from the Vanguard School President Dr. Cathy Wooley-Brown during a special ceremony in February during the school's annual Family Weekend. Carey and Bannister were the only two inductees into the honors organization.
"We're very proud of both of these students," Wooley-Brown said. "Both of them have worked so hard and come so far during their time at Vanguard, and these [honors] are richly deserved."
The pinning ceremony was presided over by NHS sponsor Roy Jones, math department chair for the school. The Vanguard School, an international college preparatory boarding and day school for students with mild to moderate learning differences, now has a group of 20 students who are among the honor society members. Carey and Bannister took their oaths of loyalty to the organization, and will now participate fully in its activities.
Adrian Demeritte named to SJU dean's list
Adrian Demeritte, son of Fealy and Ramona Demeritte of Nassau, has earned the distinction of being named to the dean's list for the 2013 fall semester at Saint John's University, (SJU) Collegeville, Minnesota. Demeritte is a sophomore biology major at SJU.
To be included on the dean's list, students must have a semester grade-point average of at least 3.80 and have completed 12 credits for which honor points (A, B, C, etc.) are awarded. Students included on the dean's list cannot have any "unsatisfactory" or "incomplete" grades for that semester.
