BASKETBALL has been added to the list of two dozen sports that will be featured at the 50th Anniversary Independence BOA Games slated for November 16 to December 11.

Yesterday, chairman of the Independence Games, Trevor Browne, confirmed that basketball and shooting, both small and full bore, will be part of the historic three-week festival.

No dates have been set yet for basketball and the shooting competitions with planning sessions in progress. However, Barbados Amateur Basketball Association president Derrick Garrett said that an English club side would be playing against some premier league and Division 1 teams.

Garrett said that Premier League champions Pinelands and former powerhouse Station Hill Cavaliers would lead the local challenge. (MK)
