A host of lamp flies circulating the court, did not prevent the first two games of the Malcolm Guishard Memorial Basketball from taking place, on Sunday 21st August.

The matches took place immediately after the brief opening ceremony that signaled the start of the 2016 edition of the tournament.

In match one, Ole Skool was forced to play catch up, after they were initially dominated by CG Massives.

However, the final moments of the game were tense as both teams strove to dominate.

In the final analysis, the CG Massives players held their nerve and held on to a seven point lead to close out the game.

In match two, there was also much excitement, as Eagles edged out the more experienced Dynasty ballers by a mere five points.

Dynasty Ballers roared back to take the final quarter in convincing fashion, but it was a case of ‘too little-too late.
