Myerscough College had four of their students recognised amongst the best junior basketball players in the country, as they took part in a national showcase of British basketball talent.

The Hoopsfix All Star Classic returned at the weekend after a year hiatus. The event is organised by British basketball website Hoopsfix.com and all proceeds go towards the Hoopsfix Foundation – a not-for-profit initiative dedicated to helping grow the game of basketball in the UK which funds the event.

Myerscough student, Konrad Kantorski, featured in the Class of 2018 game, while the trio of Mate Okros, Jamie Gray and Callan Low all competed in the Underclassmen game, alongside the rest of Britain’s best juniors on court at Brixton Recreation Centre in South London.

You can catch highlights of the Class of 2018 Game on FreeSports TV on Tuesday night, at 9pm.

The game is also available to watch in full on the Hoopsfix channel on YouTube 

 

Konrad said: “It feels great to be recognised as one of the best in the country and be selected for such a known event.’’

Mate added: “It’s a great achievement to be involved and shows the amount of work I have put in throughout the year."

Sam Neter, owner of Hoopsfix.com, said: “We’re so happy to be bringing back the event after a year hiatus.

“The Hoopsfix All-Star Classic serves as not only a bringing together of the top junior talent in the country, but the entire community.'’
