PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten, WI- It was one of the most anticipated games of the week-long series, when the BVI Bayside Blazers Basketball Team came up against one of their biggest challengers, Team USA.

But it was the BVI who came out ahead with the win, 85 to 63. It means that both teams are equal with one lost each and must face each other again tonight, Friday July 20, 2018 in another round to see who will advance to the final day championship.

Tonight’s game will get on the way at 9:00 P.M. at the LB Scott Sports Auditorium, in Dutch St. Maarten. It's a do or die for both teams, as whoever wins moves on to the championship played on Saturday.
