A small and subdued crowd was on hand to witness the first game in the play off stage of the 2018 edition of the Horsfords sponsored Nevis Amateur Basketball Association league.
That first match was played on Tuesday 8th May, at the Craddock Road court.
It was CG Massives v Ole Skool and even though CG Massives won in the first three quarters, Ole Skool, in a desperate bid to match up, took the final quarter in convincing fashion, but it was simply a case of ‘too little, too late,’ –by all of five crucial points.
