2006 Albert Schweitzer Tournament


It’s difficult to believe that the NCAA won’t allow coaches to attend this event.  It’s still one of the best youth tournaments in the world.


Brice Massamba.  Sweden.  6-9.  PF.  His family is looking into the possibility of finishing high school in the states.  His ball handling skills are better than average for his position. 


Alexander Jamthagen.  Sweden.  6-5.  SF.  Has one year of high school remaining in Sweden.  He is long and lean.  He will need to put on weight to hold his own in the college game.


Omar Zaghden.  Sweden.  6-8.  PF.  Hails from the club “ Polisen”.  Only 16 years old at the time of the 2006 AST.  He is an old-fashioned hard worker on the boards.


Andrew Ogilvy.  6-10.  Australia.  PF-C.  Enrolled at AIS and all contracts will be filtered through Marty Clark.  Andrew is a big, strong and clearly the best young big man in Australia at the moment. 


Jordan Dodman.  6-9.  Australia.  PF-C.  Jordan must have been a replacement player on the 2006 AST team.  He hails from Sturt instead of the typical AIS affiliation.


Trent Fildes.  6-5.  SF.  Australia.  Forestville Basketball Club.  Trent was one of the more interesting perimeter players for the 2006 Aussie squad.  He did an exceptional job on the dribble penetration and showed consistent range at the 3 point line. 


Alexis Ajinca.  7-1.  C.  France.  Listed as training with the CFBB.  Alex is very long, very thin and surprisingly athletic.  I expected little from him but was shocked by his presence in the paint.  As you would expect, he does a nice job of blocking shots.  He has soft hands and scores off offensive tips regularly. 


Ziyed Chennoufi.  Germany.  6-8.  PF.  He is currently playing with BBV Hagen 1 in the 1st Regionalliga.  Ziyed worked hard for the German squad whenever he was on the court.  The Germans were undersized and outmanned, but he played without fear and without hesitation.


Philipp Heyden.  Germany. 6-10.  PF-C.  He is currently playing with Marbach / Ludwigsburg in the 3rd division.  He has some offensive skills and can score in the paint. 


Sajmen Hauer.  Germany.  6-2.  PG.  He is currently playing with Breitengüssbach in the 2nd Division Bundeliga south.  He is one of the few bright spots on the German team in this age group.


The best of the 2006 senior class from the Virgin Islands is provided by David Edole.  Video is available on the players who participated in the 2006 All-Star game.


Nashon Jeffers, 6-1 G, Eudora Kean HS.

Jeffers was named to the ALL VI first team by the St. Croix Avis newspaper.   He put up impressive numbers by scoring 28 or more points several times over the course of the season.   The punishing guard comes from a long line of Eudora Kean tough-minded players.


Jermaine Mulley.  5-9.  G.  Central HS.

A point guard with intellect, Mulley can be seen under a tree writing poetry or reading a novel but when hits the basketball-court it is all business.   Mulley was the one of the best point guard in the senior class and is only 16 years old.


Marcello Jacobs.  5-9.  G.  Central HS.

Mulley's backcourt mate at Central HS.  Jacobs's ability to shoot the ball complemented Mulley.   But it was his flare for the flamboyant plays that set him apart. 


Bobby Evans.  5-10.  G.  St. Croix Country Day.

The best passing point guard in the United States territory, Evans once dished out 27 assists in a game for the Country Day Tigers.   Evans was named to the St. Croix District Sunstroke All Star game and almost led the team to the win.


Quentin Guirty.  5-8.  G.  Ed Complex.   

The surprise of the Sunstroke Classic Game!  Guirty poured in a team high 24 points to lead the St. Croix attack.   Guirty played for the St. Croix Educational Complex team that played four guards on the court at the same time.


Clint Williams.  6-8.  PF-C.  Ed Complex.

Williams was the biggest man of the Virgin Islands. At 6-foot-8 and (300+) three hundred plus pounds, Williams literally outweighed everyone but he displayed nice footwork and knowledge of the game. 


Jahowa Joseph.  6-5.  F.  Central HS.

Athletic, Finisher, Dunker are some of the superlatives that best describe the phenom.  Joseph played alongside the reigning Virgin Islands player of the year Craig Williams.  


Jevon James.  6-5.  F.  Charlotte Amalie HS.

Another high-flyer from St. Thomas who played with reigning territory champs the Charlotte Amalie Chicken hawks.   Joseph has a quick leap off the ground, which enables him to block shots of bigger players. 


Waldi Greene.  6-6.  F.  Seventh Day Adventist HS.

Has been accepted as a student at Temple.  1450 on the SAT.  Wants to play ball, but was not recruited out of HS.  Greene is a Dunker!


Chris Floyd.  5-10.  G.  St. Croix Country Day.

The best three point shooter in the territory. This kid got range as soon as he enters the gymnasium.  He once hit eight three pointers in a game to lead Country Day HS to a close win over the combined private school team.


Christian Ejiga Ochala.  Nigeria.  6-10, 230.  16.  PF-C.  Currently enrolled at Yaba Tech, a school for those leaving or completing HS early.  The Nigerian sources say that he is a shot blocking and rebounding machine.


Abel Baraya Ahiram.  Nigeria.  6-9, 210.  16.  He was selected for the Nigerian Big Man Camp All-Stars in 2006.  The sources say that he’s a go-getter who shows up to play every time he takes the court. 


Lawal Jabiru Hassan.  Nigeria.  6-6, 190.  17.  SF-2G.  He was selected for the Nigerian Big Man Camp in 2006.  The sources say that he is skilled inside and out. 


Martins Jaunzems. 19.  6-8.  SF-PF.  Latvian Junior National Team selection.  Has one year of University credit at the UNIVERSITY OF LATVIA.
