Basketball Wales congratulate Welsh players who were selected for DengTop50 Camp



James Lloyd (18) and Alex Koukouravas(17), both members of the successful bronze winning FIBA Wales u18 team, were selected to attend the 'invitation only' Deng Top 50 Camp recently held in London. The young men spent 4 days playing and training with some of the best players in the UK and even got to meet Luol Deng himself!


  James, who also made it into the Top 20 All Star team at the camp said "I enjoyed the camp a lot, and gained massively from it, I came away with an understanding of what I need to do to reach the next level in basketball. I also loved playing with my fellow Welshman and being selected for the Top 20 was icing on the cake. I'm more than certain Alex will be in the same position next year!"


Alex said " Being selected for the camp was an honour and an amazing experience. The standard of basketball was very high and helped me to benchmark myself and to understand what I now need to work on. It was great having James there too - we even got to play on the same team."


Coach Vear, head coach for the camp, explained that this is the second year for the camp and this year the standard was very close across the participants, "demonstrated by how much the leader board changed over the 4 days. It was great to see so much

talent. We hope that every young man walked away a better player as a result of this experience. "
