follow us on
No team was able to even the scores in the best of 3 series this past weekend in the KFC NBL. Last Saturday we saw BFTF (Division One) and Courts Jets (Premier League) secure their spot in the KFC League Finals. BFTF the newcomers have successfully made it to their first KFC League finals & defending champs are once again ready for battle in the Finals for the 5th consecutive year. In game one of the evening BFTF took control of the game from inception by ending the quarter 25-12 against their opponent the Lions. Lions had no answer for BFTF throughout the game, their offense was shut down by the defensive pressure of BFTF. Lions season was closed off after being defeated 76-56 by BFTF. Jervais Antoine the KFC Player of the Game had a double double of 17 points 11 rebounds. Assisting on the boards was Timothy Gabriel with 12 rebounds. Dudley Joseph of the Lions despite their loss had high figures off the boards with 14 rebounds. Game two of the evening starting off on a different and seemed like it would have been more of a challenge as the Soufriere Sulphur Stars were looking to even out the series. Being down only by 2 in the first quarter the aggression continued on both ends of the court by both teams. Going into the third Soufriere was down by 1 but somehow lost their offensive balance and at the end of the third was now trailing by 6. At the fourth Jets offensive rout seemed much for the Sulphur Stars and even with their 18 point fourth quarter, Jets comfortably clinched the first spot in the KFC NBL Premiere League Finals. KFC Player of the Game Troy Louison had 18 points of which 3 pivotal three pointers were scored in the 4th. He also had 9 rebounds and 5 steals. Game 1 between Run N Gun and the RSLPF was a nail biter on Tuesday night. With lead changes throughout the game and six seconds left in the 4th, the RSLPF tried to send the game into OT. Unfortunately not being able to capitalize at the line and missing both free throws with only 1 second left in regulation Police lost game 1 by 2 (62-60). Curt Auguste of Run N Gun was the KFC Player of the game with 25 points and 7 rebounds. Top scorers for RSLPF were Kerlinus Augustin & Calious Dantes with 16 & 17 respectively. Last evening the Micoud Hustlerz despite coming from an 18 point deficit at the end of the third were unable to capitalize within the final seconds of the game and now the 3rd Finals team has been set. VBCC Warlords will once again face Courts Jets in the KFC Premiere League Finals. Tomorrow it's do or die for the RSLPF against Run N Gun from 6pm at the Beausejour Indoor Facility. The SLBF and its Sponsors Real Foods, St. Lucia Electricity Services, Ministry of Youth Development of Sports, Advanced Intellectual Methods, & 123 Digital Thank you for the support and hope to see you at the games.

Hoops Final with FIBA President Horacio Muratore
CASTRIES - The Antilles 3x3 Hoops Final took place this past weekend
and was a huge success in both social and sporting aspects.
The level of basketball was high and all national teams proved there is
a lot of talent in the Caribbean. In both U18 Men's and U18 Women's
categories, the teams from Martinique went undefeated in reaching the
finals. The men's side faced tough competition against the Guyanese but
were still able to win gold after a suspenseful game which they won 8-7.
Meanwhile, the women from Martinique were joined in the title game by
the host St-Lucia. However, the Saint Lucians were not able to make the
most from the home advantage as the Martiniquans were quickly able to
take the upper hand and bring home the gold medals.
The tournament's MVPs were Martinique's Emerick Foucan (#7) for the men and St. Lucia's Ramani Lewis-Emmanuel (#6) for the women. Three more athletes were rewarded for their displays. Dracon Djenina and Cayol Francois-Xavier respectively won the Women's and Men's Shoot-out contest, taking home two trophies to Guadeloupe, while Allan Foulongani claimed an additional trophy for Martinique by winning the dunk contest.

In organizing and facilitating this event, the International Basketball
Foundation (IBF) wished to empower youths and nourish their love of
basketball while teaching them to be leaders and inspire their
This objective was fully
achieved according to FIBA President Horacio Muratore, who enjoyed
interacting with the youths and stated: "This initiative of the IBF was
very successful. Not only did we see good basketball competition on high
level, but also engaged young people in the youth leadership workshop.
We hope that this will further stimulate basketball in the region."
The youth leadership workshop led by Mthoko Madonda, Rubel Ahmed and
Jabulani Myeza of Reach Sports Management was an equally great success.
The youths got to know each other and learnt how to work together as a
team. They were encouraged to share their experience and think about how
basketball can help other young people in their communities.
"We think the workshop was able to inspire youth to realise their
leadership potential while also learning about how basketball can play a
role in meeting community challenges. We hope that we can create a
network of youth leaders from across the Antilles who can support each
other and create change through basketball," said Madonda.
Throughout the 52 games over the week-end, the youths were able to
gain international level experience and showcase their talent to the
3000 spectators who cheered for them. They will bring back knowledge and
experience to encourage their whole community.
