Samardo Samuels spending the summer leading Team Jamaica in the CBC

The other four starters? You guessed it: Derice Bannock, Sanka Coffie, Junior Bevil and Yul Brenner.

Samardo Samuels scored a game-high 21 points to lead Team Jamaica to an impressive 107-56 win over a select NBL All-Stars team in the second game of their two-match practice series at the National Arena last Friday.

Andre Smith followed with 18 points and Kimani Friend with 11. Christopher Walker was the top-scorer for the NBL select team with 18 points.

The game drew the curtains in the team's one-week training camp in preparation for the June 30 to July 4 Caricom Basketball Championship (CBC) in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Team Jamaica also defeated the NBL side, 96-57, in the first game at the same venue on Tuesday.

The team also boasts Big East standouts Weyinmi Efejuku (Providence) and Mike Coburn (Rutgers), a pair of talented young players whose Jamaicanicity was learned by Mike Rutherford just moments ago.

And you're not the only one to get excited about that, I think the fans here have an extreme case of Jamaican fever.

Al, so do I.

Oh no, no, no, do WE.
