Based on the information in our possession, a total of 10 children who participated in their day in the City of Santander International Basketball Tournament (hereinafter, the Tournament), reached the highest levels both in their teams of origin, as in others and even internationally. We will review it in four chapters in a random order that has seemed more homogeneous to us.

In the III edition, whose final was played in the incomparable setting of the Plaza Porticada, the MVP was the Real Madrid player FRANCISCO “KIKO” JIMÉNEZ CORTÉS. 186 cm small forward, born in the capital of Spain on January 5, 1994 and International Sub16, with a brief stint in the EBA League.

In said final, won by a hitherto unbeatable merengue team in the tournament, Kiko scored 35 points with two spectacular dunks for a boy only 13 years old, which lifted the public from his seats.

Two players from Juventud de Badalona, who also participated in that III edition, appear on this list:

ALBERT HOMS AGUILAR. Base (180 cm) born in Mataró on May 23, 1994. He debuted in the Youth on December 12, 2010, being the fourth youngest to do so (202 cm), until 2013.
