-as GABA Pre-Season Knockout tourney resumes
In what many pundits felt should have been a semi-final game, Pacesetters and Pepsi Sonics will play for third place tonight in the Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association (GABA) Pre-Season Knockout tournament when the competition resumes on the Burnham Basketball Court.
Vice-President of the GABA, Kester Gomes told Kaieteur Sport yesterday that the primary goal was to get the ball bouncing again in the city so that the relatively new administration could have garnered some momentum; the GABA Pre-Season Knockout tournament is the first initiative for the newly elected administration.
Gomes said that they will be starting another competition the second week in January to continue what they had started. However, as it relates to tonight’s game, Gomes said that Pacesetters are in the third place game because they forfeited their semi-final game.
Because of that move, Ravens will play the lower ranked Panthers in the final of the GABA first tournament on Friday. Gomes indicated that Pacesetters still have not registered with the GABA even as the association moves into another tournament in two weeks.
Knights will play Macabbees in first game tonight at 7pm. In the featured game, Pacesetters are likely to feature some of its younger players as it has been doing this year to rebuild the team. It will look to Travis ‘Blurr’ Burnett, Hugh Arthur, Stephon Gillis, Royston Siland, Elton Jefford Jr., Clement Brusche, Rayon Cummings among others to get the job done.
Pacesetters are expected to present a perfect blend of youth and experience. Meanwhile, on their opposing end, Sonics, who coach Mark Agard will lead, have their work cut out with players like Richard Braithwaite and Joel Loncke shouldering major responsibility.
Shooting guard, Trevor Smith, if he plays, will be an asset to the Sonics along with the offensive Jason Squires. The game has the making of a good contest, but Pacesetters with more arsenal and home-court advantage has the edge in a head-to-head comparison.
