As ever the Baltic Sea Cup is one of my favourite tournaments to attend and is a great way to start the New Year. Its with great pleasure that I introduce Renee Johnson Allen who will be in Tallinn this year watching the games as a scout for Blue Star Europe, so when you see her don’t be shy say hi!
Renee was a former student and player of mine before she followed her own dream of playing Division 1 NCAA Basketball at the University of Drexel in Philadelphia. Renee knows what it’s like to leave your home country to study and play the game at the highest level, she would be more than happy to share her experiences with any players or parents interested. Highlight of her playing career was winning the WNIT National Championship in 2013 where Drexel had just one turnover the entire game to beat UTAH 46-43.
Last years tournament at the u16 age group was the best standard it has been for years, I am excited to observe the progress of those players who have moved up to the u18 teams this winter and of course cant wait to see the next stars of the Baltic Sea Cup challenge for the u16 title.
Best of luck to all players!
Remember Blue Star Europe helps players for free if they are interested in playing college basketball in the USA, check out this link to see some of the players from the Baltic Sea Cup tournament teams that were part of the BSE Report and which University they decided to attend. http://wp.me/p1FCuL-gG
