Wallidan Basketball team are through to the final of the Late Pa Modou Sarr Memorial Basketball Tournament after walloping Lamin by 74 points to 41, in a second semi final clash at the Serrekunda West mini-stadium Basketball Court on Wednesday.

Wallidan will meet YMCA in the final slated for 3rd April 2011.

Wallidan came into the semi final game unbeaten in three games, in the group stages, after recording three straight wins. They continued dominating the tournament with a convincing victory against lowly-rated Lamin basketball team, which earned them a place in the final.

Lamin who finished runners-up in group B, after recording one victory in two games, were out-played and out-classed by Wallidan, even after making some efforts to turn the scores, but could not neutralize the scoreline.
