Last night (Wednesday) in the Lime National Basketball Finals which was played in front of a huge crowd of over five hundred persons plus saw the conclusion of the regular basketball season. Both series with records of 2-1 gave the possibility of two teams being crowned the champion of a division (Premier & Division 1) . The schedule for the evening were game one (1) Gloria Shillingford Raptors verses Raffoul Snipers and game two (2) The Glam X-Men verses Paix Bouche Eagles. And the fans who turned out in their numbers from Roseau, Wesley and Paix Bouche were not disappointed the games were played to a very high standard and a standard not seen in Dominica for a long time and adding to the overall excitement of a finals was the Premier game being carried live by DBS radio.

At half time the scores were Raptors 35 pts and Snipers 32, that slowly change by third quarter with Snipers taking a one point lead when the game entered the fourth quarter leading 48 pts to 47 pts. The game remained close untill the last minute when the Raptors took the lead and maintained to win the the game 73 pts to 69 pts and becoming the new 2010 Division 1 champion the first for Wesley which ended to spontaneous celebration with their sponsor Honorable Gloria Shillingford by their side.

Game 2 - Which would decide a game five (5) or the new 2010 National Basketball Champion who will be able to represent Dominica as the champion team of Dominica in regional tournaments. The fans after witnessing the nail biting finish of the first game were only hungry for more great basketball excitement and they were not disappointed even after some technical breakdowns. The first quarter ended 23 pts to 23 pts with both teams feeling each other out but neither team could dominate or take control of the game . It remained tight and ended at half time with X-Men leading by one point 44 pts to 43 pts. The second half continued no different than the first half and remained tight with lead changes on a regular interval, then came the final quarter and both teams went to their big guns to take it home Garth Joseph and Davidson Toulon for X-Men and Andel 'Brad' George and Lynvor John of Eagles. At the end the X-Men won the game and became the new Premier Division Champion. The final scores were The Glam X-Men 80 points and Paix Bouche Eagles 75 points, top scorers for X-Men were Garth Joseph 27 pts and Davidson Toulon 19 pts while for the Eagles Andel 'Brad' George with a game high 40 pts and Lynvor John 19 pts.
