Big time rebounding and hard nose defence helped Guyana create history by reaching their first Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) male under-16 final with a 77-37 win over Barbados in the second semifinal on Friday evening at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall in Georgetown, Guyana. Probably the best defensive half of the tournament, Guyana held Barbados to just eight points for the entire second half to pull off a 40-point victory over the Bajans in the history-making outcome for the host nation. Jordan Alphonso once again had a game-high with yet another double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds while Nigel Bowen dropped 14 points and 11 rebounds as well. Andrew Johnson and Kevon Wiggins each had 10 points in the win. Scoring for Barbados was Makaari Jones with 13 points and seven boards as they will now play Jamaica for third. Meanwhile, a fast-paced first quarter to open the period, Barbados ran out to an 8-2 lead before Kevon Wiggins hit back-to-back threes, one after throwing a defender flat on the floor after two dribbles to ignite a run that would help the Guyanese finish the first quarter ahead 19-15. Guyana's offensive rebounding would allow them to control the second quarter with Jordan Alphonso looking a beast on the right low block. However, a few unforced errors by Guyana allowed Barbados to close the gap to go into the half down by one with the score on 30-29 in favour of Guyana. A 10-0 run in the third quarter ignited Guyana's offence to take a 16-point lead heading into the fourth while their 2-3 zone defence held Barbados to just two points in the third period with the score on 47-31. Guyana never relinquished the lead, with their stifling defence keeping Barbados at bay for the win.
