The Willful-Skilful Basketball Club are US$5000 richer after winniNg the 2017 BATTLE OF THE FITTEST Invitational Tournament in St.Maarten. The BVI Club Team defeated the St.Kitts All Star Select Team in the finals on Saturday evening in what turned out to be a hugely disappointing lop-sided loss for the Tournament Favourites the St.Kitts All Stars Select. The BVI Willful -Skillful dominated their St.Kitts counterparts from start to finish. Despite the usual herculean effort by St.Kitts Captain and Forward Nashorn “Nash” Maynard the BVI Wilful-Skilful guards were simply too much for the St.Kitts backcourt. While the St.Kitts All Stars may have had a slight edge in the frontcourt with Nashorn his brother Norren, Josiah Mortin and Troy Jazbu Wattley the Wilful-Skillful guards were simply too much for their St.Kitts backcourt defenders
The final score saw the Willful Skillful with an impressive and dominating 108-76 victory. The lopsided loss was a huge blow for the St.Kitts All Stars who were favourites to win the tournament. The team was coached by Dave “Doc” Sutton. SKNABA President Kenroy Tobias was in St.Maarten with the team on Finals Night to give support.
The SK All Stars however did have a great showing at the tournament with a 2nd place finish. The BVI Wilful-Skillful have proven themselves to be the most dominant Basketball Club in the sub region. The Tournament was a hugely successful one says Organiser Shawn Green. Green says they are already looking to next year’s tournament and expect it will be their biggest to date.
