The Panthers will play four games (one each day) against club teams from San Ramon, Puntarenas, San Jose and Cartago in addition to participating in a youth basketball clinic. The games tip-off on Monday and conclude on Thursday, Aug. 14. In addition to the games, the Panthers have a plethora of team-building activities which range from city tours, white water rafting and zip line excursions.
With an experienced squad back, next week's games provides the Panthers a chance to get in some early work on the court in addition to building comradery with their newcomers. The entire starting backcourt of Montrael Scott, John Brisco and Tre Hagood all return along with forwards Hershey Robinson and Reggis Onwukamuche.
