WESTERN champions, Tilak High School under-19 basketball team is in Suva for business.

The Lautoka-based school will make its Tuckers Ice Cream Fiji Secondary Schools Basketball Championship debut today when it plays Saint John College from Cawaci in Levuka, Ovalau.

Being the top seeded team from the West, Tilak captain Richard Damuyawa said they wanted to stamp their mark this weekend.

"It's the first time we're here, it's a bit nervous but we want to go back giving our best performance and reaching somewhere good in the competition," the 18-year old said.

Facing teams such as Marist Brothers High School, Yat Sen Secondary School and defending boys U19 champions, Latter Day Saints, Damuyawa said defence would win them the title.

"I always advice the boys that offensive win games but defensive game wins championship," the Naitasiri lad said.

"We travelled a long way to be here and we've prepared ourselves very well to face the Suva schools. It's not going to be easy but we will try our best for the school, parents and the Western Division."

Tilak plays SJC at 11.30am at the Vodafone Arena.
