St Kitts and Nevis: The Team of St Kitts and Nevis has reached the semi-finals of the National U-26 Men’s Basketball tournament currently taking place in Montserrat.
Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment, Climate Action & Constituency Empowerment Dr Joyelle Clarke shared the update about the game and cited, “Semi-Finals, here they come.”
She asked the people to join her in supporting St Kitts Nevis Amateur Basketball Association’s National U26 Men’s Basketball Team that is currently in Montserrat.
They are turning up the heat at the U26 Invitational Basketball Tournament that begins on December 11 and ends on the 15th.
So far, in a very close encounter with BVI Skillful Ballers they lost by 2 points, 84-82.
Then they faced off against Wadadli Elites out of Antigua beating them 43-69. Then, in a blowout match on Tuesday evening against the Montserrat Shamrocks, our Sugarboys came out on top with 88-60.
The Semifinal games are set for Wednesday, December 14 from 7 pm, with the Team facing the Antiguans for a second time. If they emerge winners (and they will), they’ll enter the Finals on Thursday from 6 pm against the winner of the Montserrat vs BVI match.
With a coach like Glenn “Ghost” Phillip and Assistant Coach Nashorn Maynard, I’m positive we’ve got this.
“I am following the ball-by-ball action on the Government of Montserrat’s YouTube page @gominformationunit9284 under the LIVE tab. Let’s go boys, “said the Minister.
People were in for more than a treat if you attended both games in the Montserrat U26 Invitational last night.
In the first encounter, BVI Skillful Ballers, despite only having six players and losing one in the early stages of the game due to injury, defeated St. Kitts and Nevis 84 – 82 in a closely contested game.
In last night’s 2nd match and what would be described as a nail-biting finish, Montserrat Shamrocks edged Wadadli Elites with just 01.7 seconds left on the clock, 78-77.
People can join tonight 7 pm at the Multipurpose Stadium for games 3 and 4 of the tournament.
