Praise for top four Under-16s

THEY DIDN’T GET THIRD PLACE but Barbados’ young ballers received praise.

Junior national head coach Zahir Motara said he was more than pleased with the semi-final showing at the Caribbean Basketball Confederation’s Under-16 tournament in Guyana although the Bajan boys just missed out on qualifying for Centrobasket.

Motara gave the squad a pretty good report card  moments after losing to Jamaica in a heart-breaking third-place game that Barbados led by as many as ten points in the fourth quarter.

“I think we fought really hard and put the effort that was needed because going in, our goal was top four and semis so at least we can be kind of happy with that. But playing a close game versus Jamaica [Saturday] night, we really should have got to third place,” said Motara.
