The basketball tournament organised by Serrekunda West Sport Organisation continues to gain momentum among participating basketball clubs at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.

A well contested basketball match, which promises to produce some spectacular performances among the participating teams kicked-off on Wednesday 20th January.

The opening match was a clear testimony to the excitement the tournament has produced so far which saw a spectacular opener when YMCA entertained Sport House to an impressive defeat by 54 points to 50.

This was followed by another wonderful basketball match between Wallidan and Serrekunda East, which ended 33 points to 21 in favour of Wallidan.

Ebo-Town conceded an unconvincing 54 points to 24 defeats to Sports House as part of the final match in Week One fixtures.

Meanwhile, matches in the tournament continue when Serrekunda East suffered a 47 points defeat to 21 against Kanifing.

Thursday's match between Wallidan and YMCA who both registered victories in their opening matches has also witnessed another titanic basketball encounter, but it was Wallidan who became victorious with 30 points to 12 of that of YMCA.

The last match of Week Two was played between Sports House and Kanifing South, at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium on Friday.
