APPARENTLY the talent isn’t the problem.

ESPN college basketball analyst Richie Schueler likes what he sees here, having said the future of Bajan basketball is bright due to the huge potential of the country’s gifted young players.

Shueler expressed the sentiment while conducting 13 clinics in a five-day span across the island last week.

“The potential here is off the charts. There’s good basketball talent here. I just think if you can continue growing the game of basketball then the players and the national team are going to be very good,” reasoned the former NCAA collegiate player and coach.  (JM)
