Last week, Batis Aramin in Lucban, Philippines, played host to 24 teams and more than 200 athletes in the 3rd annual Dreamers Boys High School International Basketball Tournament, which featured teams from Guam, Saipan and Manila.

Four Guam schools – St. John’s School, John F. Kennedy High School, George Washington and Okkodo High School – participated in the weeklong tournament, eager to pit their skills against some of the best teams from Manila.

The Canada Crossover team scooped both 18U and 16U titles behind all-star select players from Manila with high prospects to play for top-notch PI colleges.

Though they didn’t compete for a title, the Guam teams still represented well, walking away with a few awards.

St. John’s (4-2) was the highest-placed Guam team, finishing 5th in the 18U bracket and taking first in the Aspirants bracket. Takumi Simon, who led the tournament with 32 ppg, drew several double-teams and box-and-ones a game.

JFK (3-3) made a strong showing behind the guard play of Alschea Grape and post play of Jonah Hahn. The Islanders finished 6th overall in 18U, taking second in the Aspirants bracket.

Okkodo’s younger squad also made an impact, finishing pool play 4-1 to advance to the Elite bracket before eventually taking 4th overall in the 16U division.
