Andrews Federal Sponsors International Basketball Tournament

Andrews Federal Credit Union recently served as a sponsor for the International Basketball Tournament held on S.H.A.P.E. The event brought together 10 teams, who played in over 25 games across 6 days, for an intensely competitive tournament.

Players from Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States, and even a true home team made up of S.H.A.P.E. personnel, played their hearts out on the court. The championship game could not be decided in regulation, and went into overtime where Team USA eked out an 87-86 win over Lithuania.

“The International Basketball Tournament is a great example of one of the many ways that NATO works together; even through a competitive basketball game,” said Andrews Federal Chievres Branch Manager Joshua Barrett. “We consider it a privilege to be able to sponsor an event that shows the great spirit of community which truly makes S.H.A.P.E. a great place to live and work.”
