Belize's National Under 17 basketball is Costa Rica participating in the COCABA U 17 Championship tournament - where it won the first Game beating Nicaragua by 31 points.

The tournament is divided into two groups. Group A consists of Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama. Group B consists of Belize, El Salvador, Mexico and Nicaragua.

Belize’s U017 Team’s Narrow Loss To Mexico

Belize's male under 17 basketball team lost a close one to Mexico in the COCABA tournament in Costa Rica this evening. In overtime, Mexico beat Belize by a hair, 59 to 57. And while a disappointment, it's not a major setback; Belize still qualifies for the semifinal round.

That's because our team wiped out Nicaragua by 30 in the opener and last night, they dominated El Salvador to win by 11. According to reports from the Belize Basketball Federation, Brian White and Devin Daly played well on the offense.

Having advanced to the semifinal round, Belize has two more games in the next round. We'll keep you posted…

Belize under 17 National Basketball Team doing great at COCABA

The recent performance of Belize’s Under Seventeen National Basketball Team can only be described as impressive. During its first two games in the COCABA Championship tournament that’s underway in Costa Rica, the Belize team took down Nicaragua with a score of eighty-eight to fifty-seven. The local boys went on to play El Salvador on Wednesday and claimed another victory with a score of seventy-seven to sixty-six. According to the F.F.B. report, the boys started out rusty in the first half, but brought they took control of the game in the second half. Players, Brian White and Devin Daly were hot on the offense while Alejandro Baptist was the star of the night on the defense. Belize is currently leading Group B and to move on to the Centro Basket Championships in Puerto Rico later this year, the team will have to secure a spot in the top two. Of the seven participating countries, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama make up Group A while Belize, El Salvador, Mexico and Nicaragua are in Group B. the team is under the leadership of Coach Fred Garcia. The bad news is that Belize played Mexico today and lost by two points in a game that went fifty-seven for our boys and fifty-nine for Mexico. A close call but the team is not out of the competition.
