Jansen, Neid hope to stand out

Noah Jansen and Alton Neid have a shot at making the U14 provincial basketball team.

Noah Jansen and Alton Neid will return to Langley for the second weekend in a row after being invited to battle for a spot on the U14 provincial basketball team.

The local duo helped lead the Okanagan regional team to a fourth-place finish in the 17-team B.C. Provincial Team Jamboree Tournament held last weekend.

The scouts took notice of Jansen’s aggressive play at both  ends of the court, and invited him back to Langley.

Neid’s play also caught the eye of scouts.

The six-foot tall Neid was a defensive force, shutting down much bigger players.

More than 40 players from the jamboree tournament were invited back to Langley.

Those players that make the provincial roster will travel to Vancouver, Seattle and Las Vegas to play in tournaments, while representing B.C.
