2024 Rising Stars Basketball Tournament

February 23rd, 2024 

Basketball is a key sport at BCNY, featuring several programs and tournaments for members to grow as players and team members. At this year’s 2024 Rising Stars Tournament held at Suffield Academy in Connecticut, BCNY’s Basketball Team attained 4th place. 

Featuring many teams, including those from Cardigan Mountain School and Rumsey Hall School, the tournament served as another great learning experience for BCNY’s Basketball Team. The competition was fierce and a welcome challenge. They ended up defeating the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence and the Rectory School but lost to the Brooklyn Kings and The Fessenden School. The basketball team showed the fruits of their practice and comradery while taking away lessons learned from their competitors and coaches.  

Special thanks to BCNY alumnus, Mohamed Bamba (Mo Bamba) of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and to Adidas, JR Duperrier, Greer Love and BCNY staff Antonio Aponte, Coach Orlando, and Coach Amar.
