Tyree Bastidas (U.S.), the 2006 One-Wall Junior World Champion gets ready to hit the ball off the back wall to defeat Diarmaid Nash( IRE ), the 2006 Four-Wall Junior World Champion. He defeated Nash at the 2007 USHA National Juniors Four-Wall Championships in Tucson, Arizona. It was also one of the toughest games Tyree ever had in his four-wall Junior career as the third game could have gone either way. http://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/2007/1230/handball.html
