According to a statement from Chef De Mission Nynette Saas, the new format for the basketball suited our style of play well.

“This exciting new format of basketball is fast, furious and pretty physical. This is no sport for the shy and timid. 

“What an exciting new format and it is perfectly suited to our style of play.”

The Samoa Men’s Basketball team only lost one of their seven round robin games.

“They looked sharp and good right from the start of the competition. They lost only one game during the round robin competition.”
