This week, Spain's Mediterranean Cup of Champions committee announced the signing of Travis McAvene as Head Coach and G.M. of the 2017 Mediterranean Cup of Champions USA Team.
McAvene brings over 18 years of experience coaching at the professional level to the table, having won two back-to-back Copa Mitchell America's Cup Championships in the Dominican Republic as Head Coach. He was also named Best Coach in 2015 and 2016 by LatinBasket.com for the Copa Mitchell America's Cup. Since 2013, McAvene has held the position of General Manager for the USA Jones Cup National Team in Taiwan.
'I'm very excited about the opportunity to coach against some of the best professional basketball teams in Spain next September, said Travis McAvene. I'm also determined to recruit and find the right talent across the country that is needed to win a Championship on both the men's and women's side," added McAvene.
The 2017 MCC event will take place June 1-6, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain. There will be over 25 European scouts that attend this Eurobasket Cup this summer.
"We are honored to have coach McAvene here in Spain", added Gonzalez (Head Coach of U.E. Mataro). "He has a rich history of inviting great American talent each year. We have followed his work and all look forward to the future of basketball here."
