Martinique team defeats Dominica Signman X-Men in basketball tournament

first_img 48 Views   no discussions Signman X-Men team membersDominica Signman X-Men returned to Dominica on Sunday after a satisfactory visit to Martinique to participate in the Charles Fidelin Invitational Basketball Tournament July 10 to 15, 2012. The teams which were expected to participate were Host Golden Star of Martinique, College Team from Canada, and Professional Team from France, St Lucia Club Team and Clayton State Lakers from Georgia USA. Regrettably St Lucia did not arrive but the games began with a schedule X-Men playing host Golden Star on Thursday and Friday, with a mix team of X-Men and Golden Star playing the team from Canada on Saturday.The other scheduled games were Canada versus France on Wednesday, Clayton State versus Canada on Thursday and France versus Clayton State on Saturday.Dominica Signman X-Men did not fare well in the first game against Golden Stars as X-Men not accustom to playing on hard wood and glass backboard did not adjust to these new conditions and for some of the players their first time at such a tournament. However the team played its best but lost to Golden Star by a score of 63 points to 50 points, top scoring for X-Men were Davidson Toulon 12 points and Joseph Hypolite 10 points.The second which by all independent accounts should have been a victory for X-Men, but in the end the home court advantages were much to overcome despite the valiant effort to defeat the host Golden Star. The final score was Golden Star 74 points to X-Men 71 points, top scoring for X-Men was guest player Ramal Carbon 35 points and Peter Ricketts 14 points. Of note the performance by Carbon and Ricketts got instant request to play in Martinique which has in place a semi-pro league offering free passage and living expenses while in Martinique with a stipend.But more interest was my discussion with the US coach when he indicated how impressed he was of Carbon and hopefully we can work something out for the young man.Press Release Share Tweet Sharecenter_img Share Sharing is caring!
