Barbados 77 (20-19-10-28) - Jamaica 75 (25-17-18-15)

Jamaica’s title hopes were shattered on Wednesday night when Barbados men came from behind in the closing stages to edge them 77-75 in what was undoubtedly the most exciting game seen so far at the Senior CARICOM championships in Santiago, Cuba.
Barbados, unbeaten in their three previous games in the tournament, started as the underdogs against a formidable Jamaica team. Most fans in attendance at the Alejandro Eugelles multi-purpose centre had already placed Jamaica in the finals, but someone forgot to tell the Barbados team.
For most of the game it appeared that the fans were right in their assessment, as Jamaica led 25-20 at the end of the first quarter, and 42-39 at halftime. Jamaica started the third quarter with a sense of urgency, and at one stage extended their lead to 12 points as the Bajans had no answers for Michael Kennedy and Mugabe Thomas. Just as it appeared that Jamaica were getting ready to close the deal and book a place in the finals, something strange happened.
The Barbados defense awoke from their slumber and proceeded to stop Jamaican's offense on eight straight possessions. Unfortunately for the Jamaicans, not only did Barbados shut down their offense, but they went on a scoring spree as well. Still, after all the firework had ceased, Jamaica still held a precarious 66-61 lead and thought they has weathered the Bajan storm. They were obviously wrong because the worst was yet to come.
Back-to-back three-pointers by Jeremy Gill brought Barbados to within two points (71-69) with 0.28 seconds to go, but then came the play of the game. Kelvin Patterson-Browne blocked Jamaica’s next shot; a shot that would have given them a four-point advantage, and Barbados recovered the ball. With the capacity crowd now on their feet, shooting guard Zahir Motara came off a solid screen at the top of the arc and buried a long-range bomb to give Barbados their first lead of the game 72-71.
From there the Jamaicans lost their composure, and to add insult to injury, were whistled for an intentional foul. Motara calmed stepped to the line and sank both free throws to cap his personal 5-0 run. Jamaica never recovered, and saw their title hopes slowly fade before their eyes.
Barbados played home team and favorites Cuba last night to determine the 2004 Senior CARICOM champions while Jamaica played Antigua in the third place game.

June 14 Games:
Group A:
Antigua/Barbuda 78 (22-23-13-20) - US Virgin Islands 68 (11-23-17-17)

The Bulldogs then pulled off a major upset when they prevailed 78-68 over last year's champions the United States Virgin Islands.
Small forward Mario Davis led the Antiguans with 39 points and 19 rebounds, while Marlon Charles scored 16 points and grabbed 19 boards.
Barbados 67 (14-18-17-18) - Turcas/Caicos 56 (13-9-16-18)

June 13 Games:
Group A:
US Virgin Islands 99 (30-21-23-25) - Islas Turcas-Caicos 29 (6-8-6-9)
Barbados 86 (25-25-25-11) - Antigua-Barbuda 49 (11-16-7-15)

That sums up the performance of the Barbados men’s national basketball team Saturday evening, as they won their first game of the CARICOM Basketball Championships.
The Bajans sounded their warning as championship contenders and earned redemption at the same time, delivering an 86-49 whipping to Antigua and Barbuda.
The Bajans showed defending champs the United States Virgin Islands, who they meet in a must-win second game tonight, just what they plan to bring to the table.
Depth, intensity and hustle are important, and the boys in blue and gold provided each, wiping away the bad memories of the championships two years ago, when the Antiguans stunned Barbados en route to a highest-ever fourth-place finish.
So “ready” were the Barbados team that ten of their 12 players made their mark on the scoreboard, and the game was already decided at half-time, when the women’s national squad, which is staying at a different hotel 65 kilometres away, arrived to provide flag-waving support.
Captain Victor Payne led the team in scoring with 16 points in 25 minutes, while overseas-based players Dean Browne (14) and Michael Nurse (13) made valuable contributions. Jeremy Gill also chipped in with ten points off the bench.
Coach Nigel Lloyd had it easy on the sidelines, as his team ran its offence so much to perfection he did not have to call a time-out in the first 20 minutes.
Barbados did miss their first four field attempts, and Antigua did score their first, but that 2-0 lead was the first and last for the Antiguans.
“I was proud of the defensive intensity we brought to the game,” said Lloyd. “We stuck with our strategy throughout the game, but more importantly, we maintained our intensity for most of the match.
“We have to work harder on our zone defence, and we should be okay. I know we could still play better than this, and we should get better as the tournament goes on.”
The Bajans brought defensive intensity, dived on the floor for loose balls, communicated well on the court, and allowed Lloyd to sit and chat with assistant coach Dwight Rouse, apparently already thinking ahead to tonight’s pivotal game against the defending champs.
Antigua had one danger man, seven-footer Keith Looby, who ended up as the only opponent in double figures, scoring 12 points.
And as a luxury for Lloyd, his second-string unit of Jeremy Gill, Zahir Motara, Roderick Ramsey, Kelvin Patterson-Browne and Darwin Downes executed just as well as the starters.

Group B:
Cuba 83 (19-21-19-16/ 8) - Jamaica 76 (17-24-17-17/ 1)

Jamaica national men’s basketball team missed a chance at history on Saturday night in Santiago, Cuba when they lost 83-76 to host Cuba in overtime. In front of a partisan crowd at the Alejandro Eugelles multi-purpose centre, Jamaica gave up the tying basket with just 0.18 seconds left in regulation, then was outscored 8-1 in overtime as action kicked off in the 17th Senior CARICOM Basketball Tournament.
Jamaica can blame no one but themselves for their failure to beat Cuba for the first time as they missed 16 of 30 free throws, shot just 47% from the field, and committed an astounding 25 turnovers. This put Jamaica in a must win situation when they face Bahamas on Sunday. If they beat Bahamas, they also have to hope Cuba does the same in order for Jamaica to make it to Wednesday’s semifinals. Damion Staples 18 points, Mugabe Thomas 13, and Michael Kennedy 11 led the scoring for Jamaica.
Cuba: Silvestre 30, Jemmot 15, Ferrer 10, Simon 8, Haiti y Elias 6, Nunez y Guerra 4, Matos, González y Torriente 0
Jamaica: Garth 18, Musia 13, Fitzgerald 11, Shelton 9, Emerson y Saunder 8, Ronald 7, Delano 2, Kwasi 0
