Porcupine Basketball team suffered another setback in the ongoing Late Pa Modou Sarr Memorial Basketball Tournament as they succumbed to  another defeat in the hands of YMCA by 33 points to 28 points in group B fixtures, at the Serrekunda West Mini-Stadium.

Porcupines, who lost to Sports House by 34 points to 31 in their opening game a fortnight ago, went into the game with the intention of snatching all the maximum points but their weekend opponents YMCA dented their winning ambition.

The win confirmed YMCA's two consecutive victories in two games as they remain unbeaten in three fixtures, while Porcupine are yet to taste a victory in as many basketball matches they have played.
