This week the NBA, FIBA and the Latvian Basketball Association hosted 64 of the top boys and girls for the European Basketball without borders (BWB) camp in Latvia.
Three English players had the privilege to attend the camp, Amari Williams from Myerscough, Josh Uduje from London Thunder and Matthew Marsh from Barcelona; it is a huge achievement for all of players involved and allows them play in front of NBA players and coaches while taking part in a high level camp.
The BWB will see a number of current and former NBA and WNBA players like Kristaps Porzingas, Darius Bertans and Coaches Rick Carlisle and Josh Longstaff put the players through a variety of activities on and off court. These will allow the players to showcase their talents in all areas including; movement efficiency, skill stations, shooting competitions and 5-on-5 games.
After all of this they name an All-Star team and a European MVP. We must say a huge congratulations to both Matthew Marsh and Josh Uduje for making the All-Star Europe team.
