St. Vincent & the Grenadines captured the 11th Annual Gillian Brazier Basketball Shoot-Out Championship, defeating the Defending Champions, Chase Collegia 61pts—34pts, on Sunday night, November 28, at the JSC Sports Complex.
Chase, playing without their swingman, Onyesonam Nolisa, because of injury sustained on Saturday night against St. Vin-cent & the Grenadines, were unable to put up the kind of fight and patient offense they are accustomed to against their more aggressive and fierce opponent.
However, Nolisa’s stats in the tournament made her the front runner in five departments, Most Points, Most Steals, Most Offensive Rebounds, Most Defensive Rebounds and Most Block Shots. Nolisa was voted Most Valuable Player of the Tournament for the 2nd time. Team mate, Savannah Holness captured the trophy for the Most Assists. Meanwhile, Sheldeen Joseph was voted the Most Outstanding Rookie of the Tournament.
An All Tournament team was selected which included, Onyesonam Nolisa, Savannah Holness, Anika Mouzon, Taylor Brady of Chase Collegiate, Delize Paul and Julia Bruno of Dominica, Vasha Adams, Gailene Gordon, and Melisa Shorter of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Robertine Frederick and Kebra Nanton of Lady Vipers, and Ellaisa Marquis of St. Lucia.
Lady Vipers defeated Dominica, earlier 75pts—34pts to settle for the 3rd place title.
