7 April, 2018, 12:00 am
NATIONAL reps Benji Colata and Malakai Banuve will spearhead Spowart’s campaign against Grantham in the Raiwaqa Basketball Easter Interlane semi-finals today.
Colata and Banuve successfully led their teams through the pool stages and are ready to fully utilise their experience and talents for the do-or-die clash.
Tournament official Ruben Colata said the experience of these national reps would be vital for the Spowart,
He said it would be a tussle of experience and class because Grantham has few good players such as national rep Niki Nawai.
“It is going to be a cracker of a game because both teams have experienced players and talented youngsters,” said Colata
Crossroads will face Bryce in the other semi-final.
Colata said Fiji Basketball officials and selectors would be present during the semi-finals to eye for talents.
He said with the Asian Games later this month players would give their best in the semis and the final later in the afternoon.
The games will be held at Edward Hatauer Court (Ed’s court).
Draws: 8am – 10: Children’s Clinic, 11: women semi-finals; Crossroads – St Pius, 12pm: Davui – Spowart, men semi-final, 1: Crossroads – Bryce, 2: Grantham – Spowart, 4: women final, 6: men final.
