From August 30th to September 5th, 2017, the Barbados Amateur Basketball Association (BABA) in conjunction with Bajan Fusion (A Fitness Lifestyle Event Management Service) will be hosting Pace University Women’s Basketball Team. A combination of 20 players, coaches & administrators along with 17 family members and friends will be in Barbados for this week long event. The two organizations are set to organise three (3) games with our senior and junior female players and a one-day basketball clinic with boys & girls ages 5 to 13 at the Sir Garfield Sobers Gymnasium Sports Complex.
Pace University sees this as a great Pre-Season workout for the players and this provides a unique opportunity to not only scout local talent but also to re-build a relationship for developmental and scholarship purposes.
The relationship started back in 1997 – 1999 where four of our top female players (Sherrie Holder, Wanda Maynard, Celia Collymore and Astrid Alleyne) were awarded Scholarships sequentially.
Pace University is led by Coach Carrie Seymour who is entering her 26th season at the helm of the Setters, Carrie has a career record of 428-277 (.607). The Setters have made it to the NCAA Tournament 10 times under the leadership of Seymour. Well known for her ability to recruit quality student-athletes who graduate and go on to establish successful careers, Seymour has guided her teams to sixteen postseason appearances. The Setters have participated in ten NCAA Tournaments, highlighted by a trip to the Division II Elight Eight in 2000-2001 and the Sweet Sixteen in 1993 – 1994 and 2010-2011.
