By Aaron Humes: With Belize’s National Elite Basketball League (NEBL) still on the shelf, one basketball star is headed north of the border to hone his skills.
Andrew Ortiz, 27, alias “Bynum” after the former NBA center, has signed on with the Las Pumas de Tecoh as a player-coach for their upcoming season in the Yucatan Circuit Championship. The season lasts for three-and-a-half months and begins on Saturday, November 6.
Andrew is being trained by Rupert Brown and managed by basketball enthusiast and activist Geovannie Brackett. He is a power forward/center and rose to fame as a three-time high school champion with Sadie Vernon Technical and added Rookie of the Year and a National Elite Basketball League (NEBL) title during his time with San Pedro Tiger Sharks, Verdes, and No Limit.
When not on the court, Andrew Ortiz works as a police officer in Eastern Division and he was supported in this endeavor by Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, and Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries Kareem Musa.
We’ll keep following Andrew’s successes abroad and wish him well.
