The touring BVI youth Basketball team, wrapped up a successful weekend, by winning their third straight game, on Sunday 11th March.
This time around, the touring team engaged the newly crowned Nevis under 21 champions, the St. George’s team.
The St. George’s team managed to stay competitive up to the end of the second half but eventually the BVI team started to pull away and totally dominated the third quarter when the home team had no response.
The St. George’s team tried hard to pull back the game in the final quarter, but it was a matter of ‘too little, too late.’
