Over the past 10 years, NMH has sent more than 50 players to Division I college programs and others have gone on to great collegiate careers at Division II and Division III levels.

We warmly welcome them in Kortrijk, and we hope to be able to announce some more big names in the coming weeks !

Belgrade Basketball Association confirms participation in MU19 and WU17

Our friends from the Belgrade Basketbal Association confirmed earlier today that they will again be present at the Coca Cola X-Mas Tournament ! They will compete traditionnaly in MU19 and WU17, our two top events. A quick reminder: last year, they were vicotious in the WU17 age group.

Belgrade is a traditional strong performer on our event.

In MU19, they on the tournament in 2012. In 2013, they finished 4th, and in 2014 and 2015 they were twice second. In 2016 they finished 5th, while last year was a little disappointment with a 9th place. They are for sure coming back to do better !

In WU17 they were very successful in the past editions: in 2016 they were runners-up, and as mentioned above, they were winners in 2017.

 

Welcome back Belgrade !
