GSSSA Basketball title games set in all four divisions By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter THE GSSSA Championship matchups are set in all four divisions setting the stage for next week’s final series to decide division champions for the 2017-18 season. The final set of game threes took place Tuesday night at the AF Adderley Gymnasium featuring everything from blowouts to a thrilling finish at the end of

regulation to close out the night. The Anatol Rodgers Timberwolves recovered from a 0-1 series deficit to complete the backdoor sweep with a 53-50 win over the top seeded CI Gibson Rattlers. Tied at 50, the T’Wolves inbounded the ball to Andre Calvert who drilled a three pointer from the left wing to advance to the championship for the second consecutive year. The Rattlers led 15-11 at the end of the first quarter

and went on a 10-0 run to start the second. They built as much as a 14-point lead in the second on a Tyrell Butler layup for a 25-11 before Jayson McHardy ended the drought for the T’Wolves. The Rattlers maintained a 28-18 lead at the half and led 39-30 headed into the fourth quarter. The CI Gibson lead was 13 with just under four minutes left to play. The T’Wolves trailed 50-37 when Kirklyn Farrington

scored and sparked a run and the T’Wolves closed the game on a 16-0 run. Anatol Rodgers responded with a 74-73 win in game two. On the other side of the bracket, the CC Sweeting Cobras advanced as they completed the two-game sweep with a 71-56 win over the Doris Johnson Mystic Marlins. The Cobras took game one of the series 57-47. In Senior Girls play, a tough afternoon continued for the CI Gibson Rattlers as their programme

suffered elimination along with the Senior Boys. The CV Bethel Stingrays emerged 47-39 to complete the sweep after their 39-36 win in game one. The game continued after a delay Monday night due to a power outage yesterday. CI Gibson led the game 12-9 with 3:03 remaining in the second quarter at the time of the outage.

CARIFTA MASCOT ‘IGGY’ THE IGUANA A BLAST AT PALMDALE PRIMARY By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter THE tour for Iggy, the mascot for the 2018 Flow CARIFTA Games, continued yesterday with Palmdale Primary as the latest host school. The Local Organising Committee, headed by IAAF Councilwoman Pauline DavisThompson, presented Iggy to the Palmdale Primary School during a special assembly yesterday. It continued the series of public appearances of the iguana, a rare species found in the lesser populated islands of the Bahamas mainly in Andros, San Salvador, Inagua and Exuma. In introducing Iggy, Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations’ public relations officer Philip Gray said he is a “calm, cool, consistent performer, always hitting the mark at the right time. He is fun to watch as he maneuvers to outwit his opponents. He is a fierce decathlete that is good at every

event on and off the track.Draped in the Bahamian uniform, Iggy made a grand entrance with eight members of Palmdale’s track and field team as they performed to the tune of the “Theme for Rocky.” Before he descended the podium and interacted with some of the students, Iggy performed to Julien Believe’s “Caribbean Slide.” Davis Thompson urged the athletes to take advantage of the opportunity of competing at the region’s top junior meet once they reach the age of qualification. “When I was your age I did not know things like the CARIFTA Games existed. Many young athletes were able to raise to the public awareness on this stage and have become household names in track an field. Athletes such as the Bahamas’ own Shaunae Miller have starred at these games and Usain Bolt of Jamaica who competed right here at the Bahamas in 2002,” she said to the group of primary school students. “Education is very important in helping you to achieve your

CARIFTA Games mascot Iggy. goals. Whether its track and field, whether its basketball, baseball or whatever you want to play, your education is important. The gifts that God blessed you with will always make a way for you.” For the eighth time, the Bahamas is set to host the region’s

premier junior athletics talent at the Flow CARIFTA Track and Field Championships. Under the theme “Faster Further, Higher”, the North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletics Associations (NACAC) will stage the 47th edition of the meet, March 30 to April 2 in honour of the late Dr Bernard Nottage. BAAA President and CEO of Flow CARIFTA Bahamas 2018, Rosamunde Carey, CEO Carifta 2018, said the Bahamas will again make history as they welcome the region to the Thomas A Robinson Stadium. The meet is expected to host 26 countries, 500 athletes, 400 volunteers and some 150 local and international officials. The Bahamas last hosted the meet in 2002 and has claimed the title four times - 1980, 1981, 1983 and 1984. Davis-Thomspon is one of six Bahamians to win the Austin Sealey Award, given to the meet’s top performer and was a member of the last Bahamian team to take the title.

44-21 over the RM Bailey Pacers.

Archers compete in first ever 3D Archery tournament in Bahamas By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter HISTORIC Clifford Park on West Bay Street, Nassau lit up with excitement over the weekend as enthusiastic archers, cheered on by family, friends and spectators, squared off in competition in the first ever 3D Archery Tournament in The Bahamas. Antonio Abraham, coordinator of the ASA Bahamas Outdoor DAIR Archery Tournament, was pleased with the overall turnout of this inaugural two-day event which took place February 3-4 at Clifford Park. Three archers travelled from the United States to compete for a chance to win a vacation stay in The Bahamas, $800, $500, archery gear gift cards, among other prizes. Mr Abraham highlighted the tournament’s potential to become a major sports tourism magnet, as, on its initial launch, the event attracted international competitors along with their accompanying support contingent. Charity Armbrister, director of Events in the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, one of the sponsors of the tournament, was also pleased with the turnout of the event. “This event is a positive addition to the many things to do for tourists and residents alike, adding to the appeal of a Bahamas visit,” remarked Armbrister. The 3-D Archery Tournament featured three categories: two adult categories (Adult Traditional -15 yards and Adult Compound-40 yards) and a youth division for competitors age 18 and under (Youth Traditional - 10 yards). The youth division

ASPIRING archers compete in the ASA Bahamas Outdoor DAIR Archery Tournament at Clifford Park. of the tournament which fielded nine local competitors was hotly contested, with contestants coming from six schools: Doris Johnson Senior High, Saint Augustine College, Queens College, The Community School, HO Nash Junior High School, and the University of The Bahamas. Competition winners were as follows: Youth Traditional: Juan Glinton - Saint Augustine College - 1st Place Pericles Maillis - Queens College - 2nd Place Joseph Lynch - Queens College - 3rd Place

Adult Traditional: Daniel Schell - From Kentucky, USA - 1st Place Ben Jamieson - Local Archer - 2nd Place Gina Jenkins - Local Archer - 3rd Place  Adult Compound: Tasso Roker - Local Archer - 1st Place Marcia Falks - Tennessee, USA - 2nd Place Monty Roker - Local Archer - 3rd Place Scotiabank, the official youth sponsor of this event, was very encouraged by the student participation in these games. “The community is at the heart of

all we do at Scotiabank. We are committed to helping youth become better off and are proud of the display of talent from these young archers,” said Nakera Symonette, senior manager of marketing and public relations, Scotiabank Caribbean North. “In addition to engaging in a positive sporting activity, organisers gave these young persons a chance to compete for archery supplies to further enhance the physical education programme at their schools. Congratulations to the winning school,” Symonette continued.

Tournament coordinator and director of Archery Culture, Antonio Abraham, forecast that another event like this one is likely to be held before year’s end 2018. “Not very often do you have an event that men, women and youth of any age can enjoy together as a family, compete on the same field, attract visitors from all walks of life and bring communities together all in one activity. “Our events have the potential to have an eminently positive impact on Bahamian society from various aspects over time.”

LeBron’s last-second shot gives Cavaliers 140-138 OT victory By TOM WITHERS Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James hit a jumper over Jimmy Butler at the buzzer in overtime, giving the Cleveland Cavaliers a 140-138 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Moments after James blocked Butler’s potential game-winning shot with 1.3 seconds left, he caught a long pass from Jeff Green, created some space from Butler near the foul line and sank his fade-away shot to end Cleveland’s eight-game losing streak on national television. The crowd erupted and James was mobbed by his teammates as the Cavs got a much-needed win to ease tensions during a prolonged slump. Cleveland has won just seven of its last 20. James finished with 37 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds in 48 minutes. He also passed Zydrunas Ilgauskas (5,904) on Cleveland’s all-time rebounds list. Butler scored 35, and Karl-Anthony Towns 30 for the Timberwolves, who were in position to win in OT before James came to Cleveland’s rescue. Butler drove the left side and had a step on rookie Cedi Osman before getting off a short shot. However, James, who had missed a 3-pointer that would have won it in regulation, came from the weak side to reject it and set up the dramatic finish. The Cavs had lost their eight previous network broadcast appearances this season, prompting James to say last week following a lopsided loss to Houston that he and his teammates should be dropped from any more telecasts. Finally, they were primed for prime time.

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak) J.R. Smith added 20 points and Isaiah Thomas had 13 points and seven assists in one of his best games in weeks. Towns made all six of his 3-point attempts and Minnesota drained a season-high 19 3-pointers. With the NBA trade deadline set for 3 p.m. Thursday, the Cavs are looking for a deal to salvage a season quickly slipping away. The team has been hesitant to part with the first-round pick it acquired during the summer in the Kyrie Irving trade, but Cleveland may have no choice in order to add a quality player capable of pushing the team back into title contention. Cavs coach

Tyronn Lue was back on the sideline after leaving Tuesday’s loss in Orlando in the first half with an unspecified illness. Lue said “I’m fine” when asked about his health, but did not provide any details. The Cavs were coming off their latest embarrassing performance in a string of bad ones in Orlando on Tuesday night. Cleveland blew a 21-point lead and scored just nine points in the fourth quarter against a Magic team that has won just 17 games. Cleveland appeared in control when Thomas hit a 3-pointer to give the Cavs a 124-116 lead with 3:57 left, but the Timberwolves went on an 8-0 run over the next two minutes to tie it.

The first game at 7:30pm saw the Sharks take on the Reefs. Game two at 8:45 pm pitted the Hurricanes against the Pirates. Both games were played at the Sand Trap on West Bay Street.

Recently returned player Jason Kinsale didn’t miss any chances for the Pirates

as he raked in seven points (four goals, three assists). Joining Jason’s line was Kevin Taylor (Pirates as he helped make those goals by getting five assists in that game.
