Roy Hibbert
Miramar, FL (07-06-2010): Team Jamaica, the 2009 Caribbean Champions, is presently in Santo Domingo participating in the 2010 CENTRO Basketball Championships in its quest to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. Sponsored by FLOW and KFC, Jamaica will need to finish in one of the top four places to keep its Olympic hopes alive. Other teams participating include Mexico, Puerto Rico, Panama, Belize, Dominican Republic, United States Virgin Islands (USVI), British Virgin Islands (BVI), Trinidad & Tobago, and Cuba.

Top talent missing
Team Jamaica, unfortunately, will be without the services of center Jerome Jordan, and forwards Samardo Samuels, and Patrick Ewing (Jr), son of the legendary New York Knicks center, all of which are attending to NBA duties. Jordan was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks and later traded to New York Knicks and Samuels, who went undrafted, is now on the Chicago Bulls summer league roster. Ewing (Jr) is already playing for the Orlando Magic summer league team and scored 15 points in his first game on Monday.

Hibbert to lead team
Still, the team is confident that they will still be able to accomplish their goal. Led by 7' 2' center Roy Hibbert, who is presently the starting centre for the Indiana Pacers, the team will feature such talent as Kimani Friend, Akeem Scott, Ronald Yates, Andre Smith, Damion Staples, Marlon Smith, Justin Leith, Jason Faulknor and Tyrell Christie. Former NBA coach and player, Sam Vincent, will coach the team.

DR is first challenge
The Centro Basketball Tournament will be held from July 5-11 and Jamaica will first face the Dominican Republic. Jamaica's group includes the Dominican Republic, USVI, BVI and Panama. The other group features Puerto Rico, Mexico, Trinidad & Tobago, Cuba and Belize. The top two teams from each group will advance and play for the title.
