The Youth Guyana Basketball (YGB) Regional Conference Schools Tournament continued last Saturday with seven games in the Georgetown at East Coast Conferences at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) and the Berbice Conference at Port Mourant.
In the City, Bishop’s High beat St Rose’s High in the under -14 division, while they lost to Marian Academy in their under-16 match-up.
In the under-19 division, 17 year-old National under-19 player Nathan Saul, who is eligible for three more years at the junior level, dominated for St Roses and registered 29 points, the most by any player in this year’s tournament, to spearhead his school to an exciting four-point victory against President’s College in the cross Conference category which simply means one area against another, in this case East Coast versus Georgetown.
Saul, who is expected to be one of key players for host Guyana in the 2014 Inter-Guiana games in November, exhibited plenty of skill as St Roses got the better of PC 48-44.
Jonathon Pooran, who scored 17 points, was again in good touch for the University-of-Guyana (UG) in their 42-24 win over the Government Technical Institute (GTI) in another East Coast/GT clash, while Marvin Durant’s game high 19 points for BHS, secured a 49-28 win against Brickdam Secondary in an all GT game. The other East Coast against GT game saw Plaisance Academy maul Charlestown Secondary 59-19.
In the lone game in the Corentyne zone, JC Chandisingh Secondary, led by Kelvin Deolall’s 14 points, hammered Lower Corentyne in Region six.
The Regionals’ and NSBF are sponsored by Digicel Guyana, Edward B. Beharry and Company Ltd and Banks DIH.
