- Tournament continues on Burnham Court tonight
South All stars impressively dismissed any challenge from their rivals Thursday night when the Mackeson Smooth Moves 3-on-3 Basketball contest continued on the Independence Boulevard Court in Albouystown in the third Georgetown group.
Boasting a side that included the gigantic Yannick Wade, Devon Bacchus, Dominic Vincente and Michael Richards, South All stars opened their sojourn in the group with an emphatic 21-13 points win
Albouystown Ballers then grinded to a 16-13 points win against East Bank Bullies despite the efforts of Elton Jefford Jr. Albouystown Ballers then ensured a place in the next round when they thrashed Warriors 20-17 in their second game in the group.
Following the exit of Above the Rim Sunday night, Albouystown Ballers is carrying the weight of the community known for ‘hard-nose’ (tough) street-ball. South All stars then set up the game of the night when they beat East Bank Bullies 16-9 in their second game.
With two wins each, Albouystown Ballers with Devon Persaud, Sheldon Frank, Juan Richardson and Sherwin Jacobs and South All stars met to decide who will top the third Georgetown group in the intensified Mackeson Smooth Moves competition.
However, Yannick Wade proved a tower of strength in the paint for South All stars, who was not afraid to toss him the ball every time he became free. Wade dominated inside, leading South All stars to a clean sweep of the group and among the favourite teams.
Following competition in Linden last night, the competition will continue tonight at the Burnham Basketball Court with the fourth Georgetown group. The best ‘street-ballers’ are playing for a top prize of $1M winner-take-all.
