ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Virgin Islanders D’Moi M. Hodge and Joy A. J. Victor have both made eye catching starts for their new Scholastic Institutions Basketball Teams.

Hodge authored a 40-point, five-assist, four-block performance during Arlington Country Day’s recent win over DME Academy’s post-graduate team. For those who have witnessed Hodge’s killer instinct before, much of the same is expected in his post-graduate season in Jacksonville, Florida.

At now-defunct Faith Baptist (GA) last season, the 6-foot-4 Hodge was one of the state and SIAA-FL conference’s best scorers. Hodge erupted for 40 points during Faith Baptist’s 78-72 win over Liberty Heights (N.C.) in Orlando.

Victor makes debut for UVI

Elsewhere, Joy A. J. Victor made her debut for the University of the Virgin Islands, becoming the first from the Territory to represent the Lady Bucks Basketball team.

At the Paul Thigpen Classic in Mount Vernon, Georgia, last weekend, Victor recorded back to back Doubles after a slow start against Edward Walters College where she scored four points, two rebounds and a block.

However, against Middle Georgia State she finished with 11 points and 11 rebounds, three steals and a block, in a 47-41 loss.

Victor followed up though notching 10 points and pulled 16 off the rack against Brewton Parker in a game the Bucks fell, 67-48.
