ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Day two of the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Women’s Championships at the Multi Purpose Sports Complex began with Guyana playing the explosive Trinidad and Tobago in what quickly became a lop-sided game and a 96-33 victory for the Trini girls.

Rhonda John got things going early in the first quarter with a trip to the free throw line, a fast break followed which saw Chervelle Cox pass to Samantha Wallace under the basket for a score to make it 4-0, before Genelle Ilfill pulled a couple back for Guyana with 7.57 left on the clock.

TnT were dominant at both ends of the court, giving Guyana no room to move or set up plays and another turn over saw Shakira Clarke pass to Jowan Ortega who found Joelisa Cooper free and she made no mistake with a long range basket .Cox made a steal and score to make it 14-4 to TnT, Natasha Alder made a two for Guyana, but the Trini’s kept on pulling away to end the first period 17-10 to the good.

The second quarter saw Guyana score first as Lowquantor Gibson drove into the paint and was fouled hitting ½ of her free throws. Clarke then hit a two, made a two, scored and got fouled to make it 20-11 before Cooper splashed from way down town to make it 23-11.

With Kielle Connelly bossing things defensively the Trini’s  increased their lead to 29-13 on a couple of “3’s”  and despite some late pressure from Shakiela Sampson and Alder the Guyanaese Girls found themselves 35-19 down at the half.

Ortega capped off the early exchanges in the third quarter with a score as well as adding an extra point from the charity stripe to make it 44-19. Alder splashed from long range and Wallace combined with Cooper for two more as TnT reached their half century with 5 minutes to go in the period. Although it was not quite all TnT now, it was close to it. Anika Nottingham rounded out the 3rd quarter with a three pointer and both Rhea Codio and Nottingham were successful with visits to the free throw line to make it 61-24 at the buzzer.

The 4th quarter was an exercise in how many the Trini’s could muster and how many times the Guyanese could stop them scoring. The Ladies in Green did surpass their first game score against Jamaica, but it also looked like the Trini’s would put more points on the board.

Kean Andrews splashed a three to give them a new high score in the Tournament, but with 3 minutes to go the Trini’s were just one shot away from increasing the points conceded column.

Connelly recycled the ball to Jellen Richardson who passed to Codio who made no mistake from distance to make it an 88-33 game with 2.16 left on the clock.

The final score 96-33 with Codio top scoring for TnT with 15 points, Cox scored 14 with 7 rebounds, John and Cooper notched 13 whilst Wallace also picked off 7 rebounds. Clarke and Ortega had 5 assists each.

For the Guyanese, Alder was the only one in double figures with 14 adding 7 rebounds.

The USVI recorded their second straight victory, 83-65, over Barbados yesterday, on Day Two of the CBC Women’s Championship.

Natalie Day got the USVI up and running popping in a two pointer after several attempts and rebounded ball. Tanecka Carey then splashed from downtown to make it 5-0 and on a flying pass from Carey Victoria Hamilton made it 7-0. Dale Marie Cumberbatch picked off a defensive rebound and fed Toni Atherley who made it 7-2. Day pulled a foul and went 1 for 2 from the free throw line.

With both defenses looking solid Tiffany Thorpe fouled Kadesha Barry, but she missed both free throws. Cumberbatch made it 14-3 from the free throw line at the other end, a long period of Barbados possession resulted in a foul on Cumberbatch, who, again went 1 for 2 to make it 14-4 and that is how the first quarter ended.

Day increased the USVI lead early in the second period; Raemeisha Claxton added two more and Day got herself on the board to make it 20-6. Akkema Richards popped in two more and Day went 2 for 2 from the charity stripe to make it 24-6.

Tamisha Flatts then picked up on an error by Day to score at the other end (24-8), Cumberbatch set up another offensive move to make it 24-10 with 5 minutes left until half time.

Carey increased the USVI advantage to 16 points, Lanese Bough made it a 20 point game moments later, but having just given the ball away Atherley made amends with a three pointer from long range. The Bahamas team then lost Winmalecia Bowen to what looked a serious knee injury, before Cumberbatch cut the USVI lead to just 12. Day responded for the USVI, Cumberbatch went 1 for 2 and as the first half closed Richards made a steal and Carey scored to give the USVI the advantage at 38-23.

The 3rd quarter was all about the USVI as they raced into a 62-39 lead with two minutes left. Cumberbatch and Ria Phillips both went 1 for 2, but Carey splashed in a three for the USVI and added two more before the quarter ended 72-44.

The final buzzer sounded with the USVI marching onto the semi finals with a second successive win in group play, 83-65, whilst it was the second straight defeat for the Bahamas despite the efforts of Cumberbatch to propel her team.

Top scorer for the USVI was Day with 25, closely followed by Carey’s 23. Bough scored 22 and picked up 8 assists with 6 assists. Day added 8 rebounds.

For the Bahamas, Cumberbatch had 28 points and 10 rebounds and Atherley 18 points with 8 rebounds.

Jamaica then defeated St. Vincent and the Grenadines, 55 – 22, to remain undefeated in their search for the gold medal of the 2014 CBC Championship for Women. The top scorer of the game was Shenneika Smith with 12 points. Tomorrow, in the last day of the first round, Jamaica will face Trinidad and Tobago, while the team of St. Vincent will face the team of Guyana.

The last game of the day was a cracker. The Bahamas had to go to over time to defeat the team of the Dominican Republic, 70 – 69, and earn their first victory of the Championship. Tomorrow, Bahamas will face Barbados, meanwhile the Dominican Republic will face the US Virgin Islands.

The score entering the fourth quarter was Bahamas 48 – Dominican Republic 39. A run of 9 – 0 by the Dominicans tied the score at 48, with 6 minutes to play of the game. Grant broke the streak from mid-range, 50 – 48. The game became a give and take of annotations; the teams traded the lead on the scoreboard.

With two minutes to play Bahamas had a 2 point lead, and Yamel Abreu went to the free-throw line after being fouled, she scored one of her two tries, 52 – 51. Grant (BAH) scored from the paint, the Dominicans responded with a triple from the hands of Monsac, but in the other side of the court, Armbrister scored twice to give her team a four point lead, 58 - 54.

The Dominicans kept fighting and with 17 seconds to play, had decreased the Bahamas advantage to two points, 59 -57, and had possession of the ball. Morton scored after capturing a rebound to tie the game, 59 – 59, and send it to overtime.

Paniagua was the first to score in overtime; the momentum belonged to the team of the Dominican Republic. Armbrister scored from the three-point line, but Morton quickly responded to take back the lead, 63 – 62. Jones scored one of her two free-throws to tie the game at 63.

Jones went back to the line, she scored her two free-throws and Bahamas took a two point lead, 65 – 63. On the other side of the court, Paniagua went to the line but only scored one of her two free-throws. The game was decided on the free-throw line, since both teams were at bonus. Bahamas had taken a three point-lead, but from the free-throw line Santos scored, two reduce the Bahamas lead to one point, 67 – 66.

Sweetings was sent to the line after being fouled, she scored her two tries, and Bahamas re-took their three-point lead, 69 – 66. Morton was fouled and send to the line, she scored her two tries. With 4 seconds remaining, Monsac was sent to the free-throw line, she scored one and sentenced the game.

The victory belonged to the Bahamas, 70 – 69. The top scorer for the Bahamas was Jonquell Jones with 23 points.
