Tournament hosts Richard Chin, Casey Wu and the members of MMAC are preparing feverishly for the big event and promises to show you that special brand of “Montreal hospitality”. The festivities begin on Friday evening with the “Captains Meeting and tournament selection draw” in Chinatown followed by three days of hoop madness. The Sunday Night Awards banquet will be followed by the After Party which will be highlighted by the 1st NACBA Karaoke Team Challenge. It’s sure to be a night of FUN and LAUGHTER.
This year’s tournament will feature eight divisions of play highlighted by the Men’s Open division which always promises to showcase some of the best Chinese basketball players in the USA and Canada. The Men’s Masters/Old School (50+ over) division will even feature a team from China – Canton United. Just as important is the tip off of inaugural Girls 18u division.

MARCH MADNESS AT THE PRE-NATIONALS
The 2015 NACBA Pre-Nationals proved that March Madness is not only relegated to the annual NCAA tournament as 48 teams from the east coast and Canada met on Saturday, March 7th at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia, PA to vie for the coveted championships in seven divisions of play. The action was non-stop from the beginning as were the killer crossovers, three-point bombs and buzzer beaters. Long time basketball organizations with numerous teams in the tournament like the Philadelphia Suns, Washington CYC, Lunar NYC, NY Titans, NYC Falcons and Sabres, RL Cruisers, NY Rockits and our brothers from Toronto CCYAA to name a few were all there to support the continued growth of Chinese/Asian basketball. It was great to welcome the Korean teams from D.C. and Philadelphia and a Filipino youth team, BSA New York. Without a doubt, this year’s tournament was one of the best.
The seven divisions of play was a record for the NACBA Pre-Nationals as were the number of teams.
