“We hope to get over the hump” – Cameron

…as President’s College look to secure NSBF championship

The President’s College Boys U-18 team faced a plummeting three-point deficit while the President’s College Girls U-18 were victims of a six-point loss in the 2023 ExxonMobil/Youth Basketball Guyana (YBG) National School Basketball Festival.
In an exclusive interview with Guyana Times Sport, President’s College Head Coach Willon Cameron discussed his expectations for the teams.
“Our girls are looking good, we hope to make the finals and this time get over the hump. In terms of the boys, we are looking to pose a challenge; while we are not as strong as we usually are – we lost a lot of players in the male category – …we are looking to compete and we hopefully should have the most teams in the competition which is five teams and give our best effort as always,” Cameron shared.
He went on to point out that the teams need to keep focused for success to be reaped.
Cameron explained, “I think is about us staying focused; you know we have the talent there, you know we have the ability, but is just times in the past – the boys have made three straight finals, they have only won one while the girls made the finals last year, so it shows that we can play the game but were failing in the finals so we need to get over that hump.”
