Two referees from Trinidad and Tobago successfully completed the FIBA Referee Certification Clinic held in Barbados during the month of December. Dexter Horsford was one of six referees who were recertified, whilst Charles Nathaniel was amongst six candidates for certification.

Altogether five countries were represented - Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Vincent & The Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago; the Clinic was conducted by Lubo Kotleba, Technical Director of FIBA and Glyne Clarke, Vice President, Technical of the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC).

On a regional basis, the Annual Congress of the Caribbean Basketball Confederation will be held on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013 in St. Thomas, USVI, and is hosted by the USVI Basketball Federation (VIBF). At the meeting one of the topics to be finalized is the hosting of the 2013 Caribbean Basketball Championships.

According to our source, the National Basketball Federation of Trinidad and Tobago was invited to host the tournament, however no decision has been taken as yet. Hopefully before T&T delegates attend the meeting, the national basketball community will be aware of their decision.

Meanwhile on the hard-courts, competition in the Hoops for Life is expected to resume shortly following the Christmas holiday break. On the resumption, fans are eagerly anticipating the playoffs which should feature the unbeaten zonal community teams such as Laventille, La Romaine, Maloney and Valencia.

With rosters loaded with some of the top local and international players, much is expected from these teams. For North Zone leaders Laventille, they are led by national players, Kurt Christian and Steven Lewis. Both Christian and Lewis played a key role in the national team historic come-from-behind win over Puerto Rico at the 2010 Centrobasket Championships.

Across in the East, Maloney has the experience of top local centers, 6-9 Shawn Lawrence and 6-7 Keivan Bacquain. To compliment their twin towers, Maloney can boast of young talent like Michael Jerome, Chris Nelson and Patrick Scipio. In addition, Valencia is also undefeated in the challenge for the top prize of one million dollars. They are led by the talented and athletic forward Fabrice Fisher and young center Michael Saunders.

Down south, La Romaine remains unbeaten humiliating their opponents by wide margins thus far. They are led by national point guard Dereck Boxhill and former Spanish based professional forward Adrian Joseph (6-7).

On another note, the Trinidad and Tobago Schools Basketball League is expected to commence after the carnival celebrations in February. At present discussions are being held with the school basketball association, the Ministry of Sport and National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago regarding the staging of the 2013 edition.
