Roy Rana
Canada Basketball has unveiled the official roster for this summers Cadet Mens National Team (CMNT) that will compete at the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship for Men from June 2125 in Cancun, Mexico.

'The 2011 Cadet National Team is an exciting group loaded with talent and future potential', said Head Coach Roy Rana. 'The group has gelled very quickly into a tight group which is not surprising due to their impressive character.'

'We are excited about FIBA Americas and looking forward to representing Canada with great passion in our quest to qualify for the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship.'

The 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship features the best players aged 16 years and younger from eight qualifying nations from the FIBA Americas zone. In a draw to determine the groups for the tournament, Canada was assigned to Group A with Chile, Mexico and the champion from the still to be decided CONCENCABA (Central American and Caribbean Basketball Zone Commission) tournament. That tournament began Wednesday and ends Sunday in Tech de Monterrey, Mexico.

The CMNT will begin play on June 21 against Chile, then play the CONCENCABA champion the following day, and wrap up preliminary round play on June 23 versus Mexico. The top two finishers from each group move on to the semifinals. The top three finishers of this summers competition will qualify for the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship in Lithuania.

All the games will be broadcast live online at

Among the 12 players who made the CMNT is a core group of standouts from the 2010 National Championships including 17U gold medallist Kevin Zabo (Gatineau, Que.), 15U First Team All-Star Patrick Steeves (Montreal) and 15U gold medallist and tournament MVP Tyrell Bellot Green (Toronto). All of the players on the roster will be representing Canada for the first time at a FIBA sanctioned event.

In the inaugural FIBA Americas U16 Championship in 2009, Canada defeated Venezuela to capture the bronze medal and qualify for the 2010 U17 FIBA World Championship in Hamburg, Germany, where they defeated Lithuania to win bronze.
