Following two wins in Belize, the Bahamas men basketball team qualified to move on to the next round of FIBA Americup 2021 Pre-Qualifiers. The team used a third-quarter scoring surge to beat the host Belize ahead of the March Madness odds at Mad Betting, securing an 86-72 win. That allowed the team to finish second in Group A behind Cuba, both advancing to the qualifiers.

Michael Carey led the Bahamas in a team high of 21 points, with Kentwan Smith chipping in 18 points and 15 rebounds. Shaquille Claire also contributed 13 rebounds and 16 points, allowing the team to gain an edge over the hosts. As a team, Bahamas took a total of 64 rebounds, beating Belize's 37.

In the third quarter, Claire opened with a personal 8-0 run, creating a significant difference between the two teams. The Bahamas went on to put their muscle on Belize with 22-13 across the period and continued to hold the lead throughout the rest of the game.

With the team consisting of skilled players like Carey (Mexico), Dominic Bridgewater (Fos Provence), Michael Bain (Commonwealth Bank Giants) and Cleare (Mexico), the team was ready to take the win. Other players who contributed in the game include PJs Stinger's Eugene Bain, Torrington Cox, Phoenix Sun's 'Tum Tum' Nairn and Freeport-native, Shavanno Cooper.

With Head Coach Norris Bain calling the shots, Nairn boosted Belize's confidence at 42 with just a few seconds to spare. The score saw Bahamas climax a competitive first half, leading with 33-19 rebounds. However, the team was a little careless with the ball and committed nine turnovers while the home team only has four.

In the third quarter, Belize lost a vital player with just 7:06 remaining after suffering a left ankle injury. Star Devin Daly crashed to the floor after stepping on the foot of a Bahamas player.

The Bahamas finished second behind Cuba, pummeling bottom feeders Barbuda and Antigua, 123-70 earlier. The Bahamas team secured the win against Belize shooting 44% from the field. The team grabbed 42 rebounds, 12 coming from offences.

In the game, Jasiel Rivero (Cuba) was the highest scorer with 22 points, allowing the team to outscore Belize with 46-35 to secure an 88-74 win. Carey also showed prowess in this game, after scoring 14 points while playing Cuba. The star also had three assists, six rebounds and 29 points while playing against Barbuda and Antigua.

Scoring in double figures were stars Eugene Bain, Cadot and Smith. Bain and Cadot finished with 10 and 12 points respectively, while Smith had 14 points. Nairn also had a good game, scoring nine points and dishing out ten assists. By the end of the game, the Bahamas team had 12 three-pointers and 20 free throws.

Following the win, Bahamas joins other teams such as Paraguay, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Cuba, Chile, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela and USA for the 2021 FIBA Americup qualifiers. Other teams in the qualifiers include Virgin Islands, Uruguay and the Dominican Republic.
