Manjai Boys Basketball team suffered another setback on Friday in the Late Pa Madou Sarr Memorial Basketball tournament at the Serrekunda West Mini-Stadium Basketball Lawn.

They lost to Kanifing Basketball team 30 to 13 in a group A encounter which attracted large numbers of spectators from Serrekunda West and its environs.

Both sides lost their opening games to Wallidan and Serrekunda East respectively. Knowing that a defeat for either side will dash their title hope, the two teams put up very good performance but it was the Kanifing side that carried the day after registering 30 to 13 points.

On the same day, the Lamin Basketball team beat Sports Basketball team 36 to 28 points in another fascinating and spectacular encounter in group B.

Earlier, the Lamin Basketball team failed to turn up for their opening group B against YMCA Basketball team last week and the organising committee of the tournament decided to award victory to the YMCA Basketball team.
