– tournament continues Tuesday night in East
Inclement weather postponed the Linden Zone Finals of the Mackeson Smooth Moves 3-on-3 Basketball Competition Friday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club Court, forcing the organisers to reconsider an alternative date for the much-anticipated showdown.
After two nights of intense competition in the preliminary round in the Mining Town, five teams
will compete for two spots in the National Round-of-16 scheduled to start next week. A new date for the Linden Zone Finals will be announced soon.
Mackeson Brand Manager, Jamaal Douglas told Kaieteur Sport that it was wise to put the games off to another date so that there are less issues related to injuries and support. He said that Linden has been one of the best communities to support the competition.
“We had to look at the best interest of the players and those involved; we can’t risk playing on a wet surface that could risk serious injuries. So will reschedule those games so that we give those teams equal chance to qualify for the final round,” Douglas said.
“Linden has been supporting this tournament very well and we want to give them the opportunity to enjoy their finals,” he continued, adding that there will be increased efforts to include patrons in the event, as has been ongoing on game nights throughout Guyana.
Meanwhile, the Mackeson Smooth Moves 3-on-3 Basketball Contest continues Tuesday night at California Square, East Ruimveldt with competition in the Georgetown Zone. There will also be competition in the Berbice and Bartica Zones this weekend.
Players from across Guyana are vying for the $1M first place winner-take-all prize after putting together their best three players to compete in the mega event. Two weeks remain before Guyana knows who are the best ‘street-ballers’ in the country.
