Onil U18 Tournament

December 31st, 2007 · No Comments

This year’s edition of the Onil U18 Tournament ended with the success of the Spanish U18 team. The second place was for Turkey, while Germany beat Croatia for the third place.

The Spanish PG Alejandro Hernandez, a NBA Basketball Without Borders participant in 2006 and member of the Youth teams of FC Barcelona, got elected MVP of the tournament. He has been joined in the All-Tournament team by his team mate Ignacio Esteban as well as by the German Power forward Erik Land who finished the tournament with 16.0ppg and 9.0rpg.

Unfortunately, I could not find out who were the two other members of the All-Tournament team but my guess would be Mario Delas from Croatia, Melih Mahmutoglu (16.0ppg) or Erdinc Balto (12.3ppg 3.0bpg) from Turkey. The Turkish team that did not feature Birkan Batuk however.

UPDATE: reports the trouble that Croatia had during this tournament. And they also give the information that Mario Delas was a member of the All-tournament team. So my guess was right 🙂
