GBC President, E.J.

Team Guam is excited to face that level of competition once again, as well as rivals in the Pacific region, including Samoa, Fiji, New Caledonia and Tahiti. It is a great experience for Junior National players, and FIBA is confirmed that this tournament is still scheduled to happen as planned.
