DUFFS BOTTOM, Tortola, VI - As the Hon Julian Fraser/Save the Seed Basketball League concluded its first full week of action, There were wins for Warrias, Avengers, Next and Momentum in the Save the Seed Energy Centre, Duffs Bottom.
The Avengers got their campaign off to a winning start on Saturday August 27, 2016 with a 90-87 win against Pure Playaz, led by 21 points, 11 rebounds and 9 steals from Iben Montern. Jose Avedo and Rodley Stevens both netted 20 points, whilst Nicos Penn scored 14 and Travis Malone picked up 11 rebounds.

For Pure Playaz, Jachoy Walwyn notched 19 points with 7 assists, Sean 'Chino' Woods carried on from where he left off last season, scoring 18 points, grabbing 15 rebounds, making 11 steals and providing 7 assists. Tyrelle David scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, Nixon Hamilton 10 points with 19 rebounds and Jose Ballovenat 10 rebounds.

Next edge Red Zone

In game two, Next beat Red Zone, 84-82, with Killven M. Samuel scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds. Clint Weston hit 20 points with 11 rebounds and Enrico Harrigan notched 11 points.

Red Zone's top scorer was Nathaniel 'Nat' Malone with 24 points, Jamal Serrant added 18 with 12 rebounds and both Romano Peters and Shaheed Collins scored 10.

Warrias pip Winning Mentality

The Warrias then rounded out Saturday night with a 57-56 narrow victory over Winning Mentality, the win coming on the back of 21 points and 13 rebounds from an unnamed player and 11 points, 9 rebounds from Shaquille T. Fonseca.

The youngsters who have yet to live up to their name were led by 20 points and 15 rebounds from Rudy Vanterpool, 15 points and 8 rebounds from Tafari Winchester and 11 rebounds each from Kahleel Cave and Vaughn Bassue.

Momentum scrape past We Dem Boys

On Sunday, August 28, 2016, as a prelude to the third successive win by Bayside Blazers, Momentum had just enough propulsion to hang on for a 69-68 win over We Dem Boys.

In truth We Dem Boys should have won the game. Late in the 4th quarter they contrived to not only miss twice from down town, but also failed to convert numerous other scoring opportunities and then made two possible possessions just one.

Adding insult to those self-inflicted wounds was that they scored at the buzzer to be one point short of at least going into overtime.

Momentum, missing their big man, Shamarr George, got match winning returns from Louie A. Poblete, who combined 21 points with 8 rebounds and 13 points with 10 rebounds from Lyndon Chiverton. William Bridgewater grabbed 11 rebounds, whilst for We Dem Boys, Riquan Fahie scored 20 points with 9 rebounds, Alwood Forbes 14 with 11 rebounds, Lenroy Grant 11 points, Akeno Gumbs 10 and Hakeem Penn grabbed 11 rebounds.
