AMMAN — The U-18 national basketball team has returned from a training camp in Turkey to prepare for the West Asian Championships being hosted by Jordan from February 11-15, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

During their time in Turkey, the team played a couple of friendly matches to fine tune their tactics ahead of welcoming Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Iran.

Coach Yousef Abu Bakker said that his young side is as best prepared as it can be and looking forward to the tournament.

“We played against some strong teams in Turkey and it gave us the opportunity to identify the areas that we needed to improve,” he said. Jordan launch their campaign against Lebanon on February 12.
