So says national junior coach Zahir Motara, who believes the ongoing BABA Division 1 tournament should adequately prepare Barbados for one of its biggest basketball assignments at August’s Under-18 Centrobasket tournament inPuerto Rico.

Motara gave the assurance during one of the recent training sessions after the squad was cut down to 16 players ahead of its first league game.
