Game 4 has been played in Fresnillo, Zacatecas, and one time more the greens have been led by Victor Avila (209-C-77, college: Oklahoma), who scored 26 pts. The other best performers have been Enrique Zuniga (193-G-75, college: Grand Canyon), with 20 pts, Horacio Llamas (211-C-73, agency: Interperformances) with 13, and Hernol Gardener (205-C-82, college: Lon Morris JC), who was the game top scorer with 30 points in losing effort.

   Another chance for Belize to qualify for Centrobasket 2006

Belize continues to struggle on the international basketball scene after losing twice to Costa Rica’s national selection over the weekend. On Saturday, Belize lost by the score of 104-94. At halftime, Belize was down by 11 after falling 20 points behind in the first quarter. Kenton Paulino (186-G-83) was the hot hand for Belize in the third quarter, sinking four 3-pointers. Unfortunately for Belize, Paulino had to leave the game after receiving an elbow below the chin from one of the Costa Rican players. The whiplash effect caused a fracture of the C3, C4 neck vertebrae. The loss of Paulino was really a momentum killer as Belize went on to lose the game. Belize outrebounded Costa Rica, 29-26, and had 5 players in double figures. Darwin Carter led the scoring for Belize with 32 points.

The second game played on Sunday night was not as competitive as the night before. Belize lost by the final score of 104-73. This was partly due to the unusual circumstances that our selection endured on their way to Costa Rica. They were basically running on fumes, having arrived in Costa Rica only three hours before the first game. Nevertheless, they gave it their best shot.

But like a cat with nine lives, Belize has yet another chance to make it to Centrobasket 2006. With the recent withdrawal of an important team from Caribe, FIBA America has decided that the two losing teams from the COCABA Semifinals, namely Belize and El Salvador, will play an additional series for the bronze medal. The winner will join Mexico and Costa Rica, who both have automatic berths in the tournament. The home and away series between Belize and El Salvador is scheduled for sometime next week. Earlier this month, Belize split a two- game friendly series with El Salvador.

But with all the problems that continue to plague our team, it is uncertain whether Belize will even play the games. General support for the team has not been forthcoming. We have learnt that the Federation is currently broke and in no position to host El Salvador, much less travel. Unless there is some influx of significant financial support, Belize may have to forfeit the bronze medal series with El Salvador and accept whatever fines or sanctions from FIBA.

At this time, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the players who represented our country, especially to Kenton Paulino (186-G-83), who left earlier today for Austin, Texas to conduct further tests to assess the extent of the injury. Paulino was scheduled to go for his NBA trials next. We certainly wish him a speedy and healthy recovery.

   Mexico wins Game 3

  Mexico wins Game One of COCABA qualifier
(Courtesy of Belize Times)
The Mexico national basketball team won 89-72 over the Belize national team in the first game of a four game series in this years’ COCABA (Confederacion Centro Americana de Basquetbol) at the Belize City Center on Tuesday night.   The Belizean team includes six imports, Belizeans living abroad in the United States, including Leon “Sonny Watson who could stand toe to toe with the biggest of the Mexicans and in fact won the opening tipoff. The Mexicans scored the first 2 baskets of the game for a 4-zip lead. But then three of the imports, Darwin Carter (183-G-76, college: Angelo St.), Kenton Paulino (186-G-83) and LeBoise Gladden (194-G/F-84) made up for their smaller size against the physically bigger and stronger Mexicans by draining in long treys to give the home team a 23-14 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Belize continued to lead in the second quarter as Carter sank a trio of basket including another trey and Keith Acosta (193-G/F-76, college: Texas A&M - Commerce) added a bucket to put Belize ahead 32-21. Then the Mexican defense effectively shut down the Belize attack as the home team got no more basket for the remainder of the second quarter and the visitors’ #9 Ramses Benitez scored 3 buckets, #6 Richard Lopez (192-G-78, college: Cal.Baptist) two buckets and 2 free throws and their 7 foot tall center Horacio Llamas (211-C-73, agency: Interperformances) tossed in 3 baskets, including 2 long treys so that the visitors took a 48-32 lead at the end of the second quarter.   The Guatemalan referees should have given the game some impartial arbitration, but they still left something to be desired. The Belize defense set screens and go the offensive fouls call from the referees when the Mexicans charged into the screening player, but they somehow failed to see when Sonny Watson, the only Belizean who could match the visitors in size and strength, got fouled as he was double and triple- teamed by the Mexicans.     Watson shook off his disgust at the poor officiating by slamming in a monster dunk on the Mexican basket at the start of the third quarter. Denton Pauliino’s shooting accuracy fell off, but Gladden remained on target scoring 8 pts in the 3rd quarter with Carter adding some free throws; both Gladden and Carter would finish with 19 pts each. Stephen Williams and Ernest Broaster (193-C/F-74) added a bucket each.   The Mexicans kept pace with buckets from Karim Malpica (190-G-78, agency: World Sport Agency), Victor Avila (209-C-77, college: Oklahoma), Llamas, Jorge Rochin (202-F-78, college: Portland) and two treys from Victor Mariscal (198-F-72) and Enrique Zuniga (193-G-75, college: Grand Canyon) to lead 68-52 at the end of the third quarter.   Paulino scored two more trey in the last quarter, he would finish with 12 pts, but the Belize defense could hold back the Mexican juggernaut as Llamas added another trey and Enrique Zuniga (193-G-75, college: Grand Canyon) won the foul calls to sink free throws. Those fouls also cost the Belize defense as Richard Troyer (193-F-84) and Kirk 'Shabba' Smith (201-F-70, college: Weber St.) with 10 rebounds, fouled out of the game.   Karim Malpica (190-G-78, agency: World Sport Agency) would sink the last 3 free throws for the visitors, and a final bucket for the 89-72 win.

  Mexico wins again
Mexico defeated Belize even in the second game of the COCABA Series "Group A". This time, the final score has been Mexico 91-Belize 72 and the best scorers were Victor Mariscal (198-F-72) with 17 pts and Enrique Zuniga (193-G-75, college: Grand Canyon) with 15. This results confirms that Mexico should end the Group "A" at the first place, and will meet in Semifinal El Salvador.

  Mexico triumphs in Game 1
Team Belize started very well, ending the 1st quarter ahead 23-14, but Mexico completed and impressive comeback in the second quarter, and was yet ahed 48-32 at the halftime. The final score was Mexico 88-Belize 72, and the best performers in Team Mexico were Enrique Zuniga (193-G-75, college: Grand Canyon) with 17 pts, Horacio Llamas (211-C-73, agency: Interperformances) with 16 pts and 7 reb and Karim Malpica (190-G-78, agency: World Sport Agency) with 13 pts.
