GEORGETOWN, Guyana – The Virgin Islands U16 Basketball team thoroughly outclassed Dominica to record their first victory at the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Championships on Thursday July 7, 2016 at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall in Georgetown, Guyana.

The VI boys grabbed their only win of the tournament with an 82-37 victory against Dominica, in what was a probably a bitter-sweet moment, having come close to victory on two occasions and falling twice, first to Barbados 64-61 in the first game and then to Antigua 73-71 in their third.

Their 101-40 loss to the Bahamas was more or less a testament to the strength of the Bahamians.

The win for the VI also gave Dominica their third loss by double digits with the team ending the championship on a win-less note.

Kiandre Clarke had a game-high 16 points to go along with nine rebounds while Jomoi Levons had 15 points. Elain O'Neal contributed 14 points and Renrick Masaac dropped 12 points for the VI.

No one for Dominica touched double digits in scoring, with Keniah Lloyd being the highest scorer with eight points.

Both teams will now play for a bottom place in the championship.

    Young men doing their best to represent and people still have something negative to say about that will be their only win. Even if it is so can you do what they did??? Good job young men of tomorrow. Very proud you did well good fight. Fish go back in the sea where you belong with your crap.
