Guyana conceded their third consecutive defeat in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Women’s Championship, losing to the Dominican Republic 112-24 yesterday at the Anthony Nesty Sports Hall.
Following heavy defeats to Barbados and Suriname, the Guyanese surrendered the contest in the opening period following an embarrassing 25-2 scoreline.
Although Guyana marginally improved in the second period, the Dominican Republic maintained their mammoth lead, as they outscored the inexperienced Guyanese 16-12 to enter the halftime interval at 41-14.
The rout continued in the third quarter, with Dominican Republic recording an impressive 35 points to Guyana’s paltry eight points to lead 76-22. Further misery was heaped on the Guyanese in the final period, as Dominican Republic tallied 36 points, while only conceding two points.
Guyana will continue their campaign today at the same venue with the Plate Tournament.
