Home Team Share the Honours with Solomon Islands
In the Women's competition, Solomon Islands led all the way to record an upset win over the host team who had high hopes of a top 5 finish in this tournament. Solomon Islands superior height and surprising athleticism was too much to handle for the local team.
Things seemed to be going the same way for the Solomon Men over Palau who were looking good with a 12 point lead with 4 minutes to go. However four consecutive and unanswered 3 point shots from Palau put them even with three to go and with the momentum of a runaway train, ended up with a 71 - 63 win over a stunned Solomon Team.
All in all a great day's Basketball and the start of what will be a very interesting tournament..
