GEORGETOWN, Guyana- After running out of steam and losing narrowly to Barbados in their opening game of the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Under-16 Championships in Georgetown, Guyana on July 3, 2016, the Virgin Islands team were unable to rebound in their second game as they were overrun 40-101 by Bahamas on Monday July 4, 2016.
In fairness to the VI boys, however, the Bahamas are regarded as one of the best teams in the tournament. At the end of the first quarter the VI had managed just eight points while Bahamas had 20.

With both teams playing fast paced basketball, the VI started with a 2-3 zone defense formation to block inside penetration, while Bahamas looked to deny 'long shots' from the VI.

Bahamas forged ahead and dominated proceedings with several turnovers while VI missed many chances. The score at half time was Bahamas 48, VI 17.

The third quarter continued in similar fashion and VI were only allowed six points as Bahamas piled on the pressure as the final quarter commenced with the score 79-23.

K'moi Walters sunk a three-pointer, another shot from 'downtown' with under two minutes, which saw the VI register their 17th point in the final quarter but it was too little too late.

The Bahamians were led by 17 points and 9 rebounds from Michael Lawright, 14 each from Samuel Hunter and Rica Bridgewater and 13 from Micheal Williams, who netted two three-pointers. Kenrick Burrows was next best with 8 points and 8 rebounds.

Walters and Layne Donaldson, who hit a couple of three-pointers, both scored 10 points for the VI.

Bahamas had scored 109 points in their win on opening day against Antigua.

Meanwhile, the VI are warming up to play Antigua in a matter of minutes. The game can be followed on the Caribbean Basketball Confederation's live stream on Facebook.
