AT LEAST NOW the rust is gone.

It’s still left to be seen if team Barbados is ready to beat St Vincent tomorrow, but they sure are ready to take the court, having finally shook off the cobwebs from a lengthy layoff during yesterday’s practice session heading into these Caribbean Basketball Confederations’ Championships.

“I think we had some nervous energy on the court because the guys are excited to be here and they really want to do well so it’s good that we had that practice and also because we haven’t been on the court since Wednesday,” said head coach Nigel Lloyd at the squad’s first practice.

“In basketball you want to touch a ball every day, you want to play every day, especially for rhythm guys like Keefe [Birkett] and Mark [Bridgeman] as they’re shooters. John [Jones] also needs to touch it all the time because in college that’s what he does every day.”
