Basketball City, St.Kitts (August 12th 2015):- The 2015 SKNABA basketball season is winding down and for the first time over a decade the season seems set to be completed by Mid September. TheFinal Four Playoffs tips off this Thursday August 13th with the last 4 teams left in the Premier Division after the first two rounds of playoff matches will square off.
The two final four series will pit Former Champions Hitters and Fig Tree against each other. Fig Tree has not won the SKNABA Title in a decade while it’s been 5 years since Hitters last felt Championship Glory. The second Final Four series match is easily the most anticipated series of the year. It’s a series that is being labeled by most as the “real” finals where Defending Champions Challengers Exodus will be squaring off against former multi-time Champions the St.Pauls Tuff Knots who returned to the Premier Division after some years including an undefeated year in the “A” division last season.
Led by Noshorn “Big Nash” Maynard considered by most the best player in the league the Tuff Knots will no doubt provide an exceptionally formidable foe for the defending champions Exodus. Exodus relies on the dynamic guard play of brother Javal Hodge and Taslyn Belboda. Hodge and Belboda can be described as the most lethal backcourt duo in the country. Exodus also boasts the ever present ever green , ever durable Shawn “Shabba” Forbes who at 40 plus years of age remains one of the most dominating figures in the league. Forbes along with the brother guard duo of Belboda and Hodge have been the core of the success of the Challengers Exodus who have yet to lose a single game in two seasons.
