    Default 2017 Centrobasket U17 Men

    July 26-30 in the Dominican Republic
    http://www.fiba.com/centrobasket/u17/2017/

    Group A
    Mexico
    Guyana
    Bahamas
    Puerto Rico

    Group B
    Dominican Republic
    Jamaica
    Panama
    US Virgin Islands

    Bahamas dominated the Caribbean championship last year, although the USVI didn't have to play. Mexico won COCABA, winning their meeting with Panama 90-72.

    Guyana roster:
    The team which is headed by Lugard Mohan, includes Nigel Bowen, Tramine Brown, Kelmar Carmichael, Akeem Crandon, Shamar France, Roydon Glasgow, Jether Harris, Andrew Johnson, Jermaine King, Kevon Wiggins, Anthony Yanson and Jahleel Young.
    Missing last year's top scorer Jordan Alphonso, who now plays in the US. New York-based Wiggins scored 15 a game last year but with a very low shooting percentage.

    Puerto Rico roster:
    Jermaine Miranda, Harry Sosa, Víctor Rosa, Algenis Quintana, Jeriel Zayas, Omar Morales, James De Jesús, Ernesto Torres, Eduardo Peralta, Emmanuel Hernández, Jorge Torres y Francisco Ramos.
    Mexico roster:
    Miguel Argomaniz, Christian Maldonado, Javier Gonzalez, Rogelio Arredondo, Leonardo de Coninck, Marco Salcido, Moises Andriassi, Jared Perez, Sebastian Reynoso, Arturo Castillon, Raul Olea, Luis Ochoa
    Three-point specialist Andriassi was their top scorer at COCABA last year, but they're missing Jose Villavicencio, who scored 14.5 ppg on 65% shooting, and also averaged seven assists a game.

    Panama roster:

    Jonathan Andrade, Ricardo Lindo, John David Gunn, Roberto Armstrong, Jesús Lombardo, Jesús Sanjur, Edward López, Fermín Borbua, Adrián Roux, José Anguizola, Oscar Zephyrine y Ramsés Garibaldi.
    Andrade, Gunn, Armstrong, and Lombardo all averaged double-digit scoring in COCABA here, but the top player might be the Washington-based Lindo, a 6-7 wing who earned numerous D1 scholarship offers after a big growth spurt last summer.

    Dominican Republic roster:


    Frink was the top scorer on the U17 team last year, and Jones had a strong U16 tournament in June.

    From Jamaica side, Samora Williams is expected to be the top prospect, see also:
    http://www.fiba.com/centrobasket/u17...s-championship

    He's 17 and 6'2". Others interesting should be:

    Marcomiche Downer (17, 6'9"), https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eHXyFbNG5s
    Tyrece Thompson (17, 6'5" or 6'6"), https://basketball.realgm.com/player...Summary/120118

    Day 2:

    Mexico 83 Bahamas 75
    Puerto Rico 115 Guyana 48
    Jamaica 56 Panama 54
    Dominican Republic 97 USVI 60

    Another tough loss for Panama, who played today without the injured Ricardo Lindo. Mexico edged Bahamas in the crucial game for second place in Group A behind 32 points from Javier Gonzalez.

    Day 3:

    Panama 89 USVI 62
    Mexico 74 Guyana 63
    Puerto Rico 83 Bahamas 75
    Dominican Republic 71 Jamaica 46

    Panama got double-doubles from three different players and with the big win they advanced to the semis on the tiebreaker. Another tough loss for the Bahamas and the four English-speaking countries are eliminated.

    Semifinals:

    Puerto Rico 59 Panama 56
    Dominican Republic 106 Mexico 71

    Final: Dominican Republic 81 Puerto Rico 80
    Third Place: Panama 85 Mexico 80

    David Jones, who had missed a pair of free throws seconds earlier, made two free throws with two seconds left (after PR was called for a reach 40 feet from the basket...) to give the Dominicans the win in a wild finish. Alanzo Frink scored 22 points (8/11 FG) and was named tournament MVP.

    After three close losses earlier in the tournament, Panama came from 17 points down late in the third quarter to grab the third spot at the Americas U18 next year. Ricardo Lindo scored 39 points (24 in the fourth quarter!) and added 19 rebounds for Panama., while Andriassi scored 28 for Mexico after putting up 32 in the semifinal.

    Classification Games:

    Jamaica 81 Guyana 57
    USVI 91 Bahamas 89

    5th Place: USVI 70 Jamaica 58
    7th Place: Bahamas 91 Guyana 63

    Disappointing tournament for the Bahamas, but Dominick Bridgewater ended as the tournament's top scorer with 24.8 ppg.
