  • UG Trojans fighting to the very end

    first_imgThe Guyana Amateur Basketball Association’s (GABA’s) First Division, Second Division and Under-23 leagues continue action at the Burnham Hard Court on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.As the tournament is currently in its progressive stage, many fans have been privileged to watch the UG Trojans compete in the tournament in the first division and U23 leagues.UG Trojans coach Warren WilsonSpeaking with Guyana Times Sport, coach of the UG Trojans, Warren Wilson, stated he is very impressed with the U23 side, as they have played three games and won two, against the Eagles and Sonics, whilst the third game was washed out due to inclement weather. The student side went on to beat the Eagles 56-52, with Jabari Joseph scoring 9 points 5 rebounds 2 steals and 1block; Jahleel Young scored 9 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal; and Kadeem Peterkin scored 9 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 2 steals.They also had a close encounter with the Sonics, miraculously winning the game 65-64, with Jabari Joseph again leading from the front with 16 points, Darroll Williams scoring 16 points, and Kadeem Peterkin scoring 11 points, proving that everyone on the team plays an integral part in the team’s success.According to Wilson, “We lost to Nets 1st Division 78-52. Certain players stood out, such as Samuel Thompson: 19 points 3 rebounds 2 blocks; Akil Lewis: 14 points 3 rebounds; andDwight McKinnon: 8 points 5 rebounds 2 blocks in the losing effort”.Asked by Guyana Times Sport how he felt about both teams’ performance, Wilson said, “The U23 is performing fairly well. We just have to do some fine-tuning on the defensive end and hope they get adjusted to the conditions, as they haven’t fully adjusted to conditions at Burnham Court despite their victories against such worthy opponents”.He also said the first division team has potential and can play, but currently at the moment, the Achilles heel for the first division is fitness, and they are working round the clock to fix the issue.The Trojans will play the Guardians in their next first division match-up.last_img read more
