SUPER LEAGUE ANNOUNCED

The concept of the Super League is to provide strong competition for the National Teams in their preparation for the Micronesian Games in August

The FBL (Filipino Basketball League) All Star Team is filled with lots of height, but not as much as the Youth Team Sports  All Stars which will feature former NBA players in Todd Fuller at 7 feet and David Wood at 6’9”.  The Youth Team Sports group will be on island all next week to conduct players clinics and readily agreed when approached to be a part of the inaugural Super League. 

The NBL (National Basketball League) All Stars will feature many younger players, several of whom were initially selected into the National Squad but for differing reasons did not accept their positions. 

The Super League will be a round robin competition with 2 games each night at 6.00 and 8.00pm from Monday to Wednesday.  On Thursday the teams will play semi-finals and the play-off games will be played on Friday.
