DUFF’S BOTTOM, Tortola, VI – Another action packed weekend at the Hon Julian Fraser Save the Seed Basketball League saw the Bayside Blazers get win number three, 92-59, against the West Gunners, at the Save the Seed Energy Centre in Duffs Bottom.

Sandy E. Nadal top scored with 25 points, adding 7 steals, whilst Louie A. Poblete scored 17 points, Jolyon J. D. Wilson 12 with 5 rebounds and Asim Z. C. Beazer 11 with 6 assists and 7 steals.

West Gunners were led by Kemaul Jackson’s 12 points and 9 rebounds along with 11 points from Alexander Jarvis.
