           Following last year’s revival of the 15 & under division (5 teams), word has spread throughout the continent and we will now have 8 teams competing.  The defending champion- Bill Chan’s NY USAB 15’s will have Devin Figueroa back to lead them.  He will most certainly be the best player in the division.  Devin will be surrounded by a group of players who mostly played last year on the winless USAB 15 B team.  These players have made a lot of improvement in all facets of the game and they have what it takes to give Devin the support he needs.  Kevin Cai and Russell Huang will be boys to watch.  The New York New Life Rockits came in second last year, but most of their top players have since moved on up to the 18 & under division.  Kevin Low took a new post this year in coaching the squad after suffering through a dismal season last year with the 18 & under squad.  He steps into a team that returns only a few players from last year.  But don’t sleep on this team, as Derek Kwong, Kyle Lew, and Chris Leong will be more than ready to play.  They have the confidence to close out tough games and play with an intensity that is unmatched by anyone else.  Solomon Tenn’s Toronto CCYAA 15’s lost to the Rockits last year in the Semifinals in an upset that not many people saw coming.  Now, Toronto will return with a chip on their shoulder and will be dangerous.  The top players for CCYAA will be defensive standout Ivan Chan, Derek Hui, and young Darren Chu.  The Philadelphia Young Suns captured the 2008 Pre-NACBAIT Classic in the 16 & Under division this past April.  KK Fung (MVP) was shockingly productive while guys like YQJ and Chris Sutanto played over their heads.  Last year, this team won 1 game at the NACBAIT.  They will probably be hard pressed to repeat that feat and anything more than 1 win would be gravy.  The New York USAB Biddys will be a team that you will watch with amazement.  These 12 and 13 year old rugrats play at a level you simply could not expect.  Despite their Mini Me size, these kids can really play.  The top players for this squad are Mitchell Cheung and Andrew Ng.  Still, if these kids can win a game, it would be a shock.  The New York Falcons, coached by Big Apple hoops fanatic Tom Law are a solid team that is unlikely to be intimidated by anyone and will play hard from opening tap until the final buzzer.  They have no standout players, as any one of the 12 could step it up at any given time.  The Maryland Pistons (coached by David Kung) are a 14 year old team from Montgomery County, Maryland.  They are a group of boys that can handle the ball, shoot the lights out, and get up and down the court in transition.  This style fits them perfectly, as their small stature would probably make playing a half court game tough.  Brian Hum and Nathan Kung will be their leading performers. Victor Wu and Eddie Tsao add defensive tenacity for this team.   Wilfred Lam’s Markham FCCM 15’s team will also be participating in its first NACBAIT, as they round out the competition.  This team has been together for a couple years now, taking part in local church leagues.  Half this team plays in OBA competition (similar to AAU in the US) and three of their top 14 year old players (Angus Lam, Edmund Lee, and Eric Yeung) just led their school to the Toronto City Championship in both volleyball and basketball.  FCCM has a chance to surprise everyone this year.
