Captain Rawle Marshall led all scorers with 23 points in a losing cause. He was supported by Andrew Ifill, Gordon Klaiber and Shane Webster who netted 14, 13 and 10 points respectively. Aaron Brown led the winners with 19 points while Devon Peltier contributed 15.

Supporting with 10, nine and eight points respectively were Jamal Samuel, Johnathan Gray and Cuthbert Victor. Conceding a 15-point lead following an opening 29-14 period, Guyana would go into the half time interval down by 22 points as the second quarter finished with scores locked at 47-25.

The third period would witness the local side outscoring USVI 20-19 as they went into the final stanza trailing 66-45. Outscoring USVI 30-29 in the final quarter would do little to change the outcome as Guyana fell to their second straight loss in the event.

Guyana will now face off with Barbados in their final Group-B matchup today. In their tournament opener on Tuesday, Guyana lost to hosts BVI by a 93-63 score line. Klaiber led the Guyana unit with a game high 17 points while captain Marshall netted 12 points.

Contributing with the next best score of eight points each were Ifill and Akeem Kanhai. Halstead Chiverton top scored for the hosts with 17 points while supporting with an even 16 points was Rashid Cann. Coming off the bench to register 13, 12 and 11 points respectively were Steve Parillon, Norville Carey and Dione Blyden correspondingly. Trailing 30-22 after the opening period, Guyana would be outscored 27-14 in the second stanza as they went into half time trailing 57-36.

The struggles would continue for the Guyana side in third period as they were outscored by a 23-6 score line to go into the final quarter trailing 80-42. With the outcome clearly decided going into the final period, Team Guyana eventually would outscore their opponents by a 21-19 margin.
