GAMEZONE: FIBA U16 Men's European Championships

  • Aug 19,2017

The Ireland Under 16 men’s team flew to Bulgaria this week to contest the FIBA U16 Men’s European Championship Division B.

Pat Price’s charges will contest Group C alongside Hungary, Slovak Republic, Norway, Czech Republic and Bosnia and Herzegovina and have a busy schedule of games ahead of them.

Speaking before the tournament, Coach Price stated: “We’re all equally excited about the next few weeks. We will take it one game at a time and look to improve throughout. We need to get off on the right foot against Hungary on Thursday. It’s a strong group, including Bosnia and Herzegovina who came down from the A Division. That being said, there are rarely easy games at this level so we must be adaptable both in games and from game to game. Until late Thursday night, Hungary is the priority.
