BAHAMAS FINISHES SIXTH AT CENTROBASKET

The Bahamas finished sixth overall at the FIBA Centrobasket Championships for a second consecutive year after losing to Costa Rica last night.

The team suffered a wire-to-wire 73-50 loss.

Michelle Butler led The Bahamas with 12 points and nine rebounds in the game. Antonicia Moultrie also had 12 points, and Rehema Collins chipped in with seven.

The Bahamas finished the tournament with a 2-3 record overall, including wins over El Salvador and Barbados.

Head Coach Varrel Davis said that it was a learning experience for the girls and that she is happy with the team’s performance.

“With the performance, I’m happy. I think we should have performed better than we did, I think we should have medaled but we had some lapses between games, but It was a learning experience.”
