“We have a process in place that, over the years, has given many players a solid foundation to successfully step into FIBA basketball. A solid foundation means that they will be hired by a foreign club and stay with the team for the length of the season. Selecting the right players for international competition is a process that requires experience and knowledge of FIBA basketball. Many players can be signed once, but not many can build an international career. We are a small organization with a shoestring budget that you would never imagine could result in the high rate of success we have had taking players to the next level. It’s all about the process,” Rebels owner and head coach Fernando Rojas stated.
