The Glam X-Men suffers defeat at the hands of the Antigua All Star Team
The 2010 Lime Dominica DABA National Basketball Champions X-Men has failed to secure a single victory at the recent regional basketball encounter in Antigua.
The X-Men team which defeated the Paix-Bouche Silver Lining Eagles in the finals of the Lime Dominica DABA National Basketball Championship was invited to Antigua to play two matches; one against the 2011 Antigua’s Basketball Champions and the other against an Antiguan All Star team.
Unfortunately, X-Men which was plague with injury and the absence of most of its key players was unable to secure a win.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Amatuer Basketball Association Mr. Mickey Joseph only seven (7) players were able to travel to Antigua and five (5) among the seven (7) were new players.
Nonetheless, Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Amatuer Basketball Association Mr. Mickey Joseph who is also X-Men’s coach is describing the experience as worthwhile since they were able to assess the capabilities of the new players.
He says both the female and male basketball team of Antigua have indicated their interest to visit Dominica to participate in a friendly encounter.
This he believes is a plus as they seek to advance the regional integration in the sport of basketball.
