    respect to paix bouche senior team.For a whole season them guys have been winning with only five or six players for the most .their heart,talent and determination is amazing.Without one od their key players absent ,the guys are continuing to win .With a very good coach and a talented determined team,they can be hard to beat .Keep the fight,we know it is going to get harder ,but if the team play together and stick to the fundamentals of th game and with their coach keeping a good direction as he have been doing .I think they can pull it out .Brad, Earl, Abe… John ,Webber and the rest of the team, keep it together.Dirison ,you are being missed.Where is Glen?

    Ps we need more players on the bench!

    I can do nothing but congratulate Paix Bouche on their win against you fellas. But as Majay would say “First game is for boys.” Come Friday, is a different kettle of fish…is a different ball game. That loss at Paix-Bouche just ignited the old Pros/Sixers fire in your bellies to make them regret that they had ever won that game up at Paix Bouche.

    Championship blood runs in the veins of every manjack of you. Always remember the old time basics: short passes; set screens; use your pick and roll; box out under the basket; impeccable shot selection; talk to your team mate on the court; eye always on the ball; put them off with the small trash talk; let the referee do his job; sneak in the fast breaks; run the full court presses; no passes across the court; be intelligent; use the double team to force the early turnover; the defense must be an aggressive, tenacious and no holds barred blanket; always remember that your defense creates your offense; work the overload to clear Shamal; Ramal must call for the ball in the centre, and it must be given to him so he can burst the centre for the three-point play. He, Ramal has also got to bring down the big rebounds and deliver the big defensive blocks. Dangleben cannot afford to foul out at all. DON’T GET VEXT ON THE COURT OR ON THE BENCH.

    Ted George is a dangerous man in any man’s books. We see how Dwight can step up. With a captain who has been there and done that, Pros has pedigree. Pros has character. Pros comes into this thing powered by the long tradition of Grand Bay Nationals, Bata Pros, Pros Junior, Hieneken Pros and South City Sixty-Sixers. All that is going to come together when it faces up to Paix Bouche in the big take down come Friday nite. MATCH-A-SA!

    I can do nothing but congratulate Paix Bouche in their win against Pros. Nuff said.

    Now Pros,

    Forget that last game. There is nothing wrong in losing a game. All it has done is put that old Pros/Sixty-sixers fire in your belly in a controlled rage you
