Greece men’s national U16 basketball team, together with coach Vangelis Ziagkos, recently visited the Trace ‘N Chase venue in Thessaloniki ahead of the 2022 FIBA U16 European Championship where they claimed the fourth place!
The U16 team was in Thessaloniki earlier this month in order to participate to a series of friendly games with Romania and Croatia so they didnt miss the opportunity to stop at Trace N’ Chase where our PR Manager Antonis Moumoglou gave a thorough tour to the entire group.
The Greek delegation explored the shiny and full of collectibles venue, with the young athletes being very impressed by the memorabilia of the plethora of NBA stars they admire and aspire to play against in the future! A special package full of collectible NBA sports cards was given to each member of the next generation of youth basketball!
During the final phase of the 2022 FIBA U16 European Championship, team Greece won all five games in the Group stage, the Round of 16 and the quarterfinals but was then defeated in the semifinals by Lithuania and France, ending up as fourth at the final standings. Kalamatian Neoklis Avdalas had an impressive presence during the tournament and was rewarded with an individual distinction, as he was selected in the best 5 of the Championship!
