CBCU16 - Suriname down Guyana 64-56 in to close day 2

Suriname rebounded after their game one loss to Jamaica to defeat host Guyana 64-56 in the final game of Monday night's action in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) male under-16 championship at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall in Georgetown, Guyana.

Suriname played with grit and passion for the entirety of the game while Guyana shot themselves in the foot with turnover after turnover.

Guyana's inability to take care of the ball (36 turnovers) coupled with their poor shooting from the field (25.71%) and the stripe (41.3%) allowed Suriname to pull away in the fourth for a comfortable win in a game that was competitive nevertheless.

In addition, Guyana's inability to move the ball with only seven assists in the entire game only made matters worse for the host nation.

Andrew Blijd top scored for Suriname with 18 points while Keatan Weibolt contributed 13 points as well to help Suriname pull off the win.

Scoring for Guyana came from Nigel Bowen and Jordan Alphonso with 14 points apiece while Bowen had 11 rebounds and Alphonso 12.

Earlier, Guyana started the game with a quick 5-0 run but their lack of defensive rebounding in the first period negated any chances of expanding the early lead.

However, Guyana countered the ferocious rebounding of Suriname with an up-tempo pace that got them buckets at the rim as well as some points at the stripe.

On the defensive side Guyana seemed willing to give up perimeter shots in the first half instead of drives to the lane, however, Suriname's continued to pound the glass for garbage points with the first half ending with Guyana ahead 29-26.

Rebounding remained key for Suriname in the third, taking the lead for the first time in the game with 3:27 left in the period.

The dutch speaking nation also had their three-point shot working in the period dropping three for the period while attempting six shots from beyond the arc in the third quarter.

In addition, Guyana gave up the rock on a number of possessions with careless pass after to pass to allow Suriname to head into the fourth with a 45-40 lead.

Suriname pulled away in the fourth and while Guyana made a few attempts to get back in the game, Suriname's feisty defence quelled any fired that started.
