Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide a platform to assist student athletes the opportunity to showcase their basketball talents for athletic establishments to see. The goal is to hopefully procure scholarships to gain an education while using basketball as a vehicle to do so.


Our Approach

At iLuvBBall our vision is to feature the players on our site and give them a platform to promote themselves. We do so by hosting our own tournaments and showcase events where we create player profiles for coaches and scouts to see.
We employ student athletes as Jr. News Correspondences and give them real life in-game experience and the opportunity for their work to be published on a website that is viewed by thousands of basketball enthusiasts.


Meet The Founder

Rodini Almonacy

Founder of iLuvBBall.com

Realizing how difficult it was to procure a scholarship for his son, the founder of iLuvBBall.com Rodini Almonacy, sought to educate players & parents on how to get to “their basketball next level” by providing the blueprint to navigate the treacherous roads of AAU/travel basketball and the college recruitment process. That is why he created this platform for players to promote themselves. Helping the parents and student athletes overcome one of their biggest hurdles… getting the exposure needed to “Be Seen” by scouts and college coaches giving them the opportunity to play ball at the next level and use basketball as a vehicle to get an education and forge friendships and business contacts that will stay with them for a lifetime.
