The National Basketball Association (NBA) and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) announced the top 64 boys and girls from 34 countries and regions across the world to participate in the sixth annual Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Global Camp. The camp will be held throughout the weekend at Quest Multisport.
