NEBL set to tip off in January 2020, San Pedro Tiger Sharks ready to defend their title!

Basketball aficionados can look forward to another exciting season of the National Elite Basketball League (NEBL) Tournament set for January 18, 2020. The first game of the season will be between the 2019 defending Champions San Pedro Tiger Sharks and Belize City Defenders at the Angel Nuñuez Auditorium commencing at 9PM. The 2020 season will see a new team hailing from Punta Gorda Town, Toledo. The Punta Gorda Panthers will join the seven other teams (San Pedro Tiger Sharks, Verdes, Belize City Defenders, Belize Hurricanes, Belmopan Bandits, Orange Walk Running Rebels, and Dangriga Dream Ballers), who are gearing up for the competition.

The NEBL shared a significant new regulation/change that will apply to the upcoming season. The Belizean-American label has been removed and all Belizean players will be treated with the same conditions and there will be no restrictions on the number of Belizean-American players per team. Another change will see every team being allowed to have two foreign players expanding the foreign based players. According to NEBL, this is in alignment with their vision for the league’s growth, projecting that the level of competition will increase. They also anticipate that such new mechanisms will attract more fans during the games.

On Friday night at the Civic Center in Belize City, Belize Hurricanes debuted with an 85-77 win over visiting defending champions, San Pedro Tiger Sharks. Tiger Sharks guard Francis Arana led all scorers with 27 pts, but the Hurricanes led the game from start to finish, behind double-figure scoring from Jamaal Samuel 19 pts, Alex Carcamo and Jamell Harris with 17 pts each, and Ashton Edwards (formerly of Tiger Sharks) with 12 pts. For the Tiger Sharks, only Francis Arana 27 pts, Jihad Wright 15 pts, and Emory Bennett, Jr. 11 pts were in double figures. The Tiger Sharks have been dominant on their small court at the island; but adjustments have to be made for a different game at the Civic. The Hurricanes were packing some powerful winds in their first outing.

Final Score last night, Digi Defenders 101 SP Tiger Sharks 88

Defenders ousts Tiger Sharks to sit atop NEBL standings


San Pedro Tiger Sharks defeated by Belize City’s Digi Defenders, fall to second seed

San Pedro Tiger Sharks’ big man Martevuius Adams must at times feel like Gulliver among the Lilliputians. He is the biggest player in the league, and he takes a pounding, a ton of abuse, usually without complaint.

Tonight, his frustration finally boiled over and, after a hard shove of an opposing player and pointed words to the referee in the fourth quarter, he was gone. And with his ejection, so did whatever chances the defending champions had of winning the game and remaining in first place, also exit.

The Tiger Sharks never led tonight’s game at the Civic by da Riva; their hosts, Belize City’s Digi Defenders were primed, ready and eager for revenge in “the clash of the titans,” a game between the two teams tied for first place and a return match, the Defenders having lost the first game out on the island. Unlike that game, Digi quickly bolted out to a double-digit lead that at times ballooned to near 20 points, and only narrowed to single digits twice.

But despite that fact, it was a competitive game that had playoff intensity, lots of hard fouls, and an on-court altercation. Unfortunately, Digi’s guard Shaquille Crawford had to be taken to the locker room via stretcher after a horrific fall and never returned.

As with all good stories, it had drama and melodrama. The matchup of the teams’ shortest players, Digi’s Mykeil Tzul versus the Sharks’ Francis “Frank” Arana, was well worth the price of admission. Both are speedy fireplug guards who can shoot and play pesky defense. Both are two of the fiercest never-say-die competitors you will ever see.

The combination of Adams and Arana is a basketball classic, one almost diminutive but fleet and quick, the other a large, ponderous presence. The Sharks are a different team when either is off the court, especially Adams; and with him, they’re near unbeatable on their home court out on the island.

Matt Smiling’s guys wanted to push the pace from the opening tap to negate Adams’ presence in the middle, and that worthy was on the bench for long periods in the first half, as Rico Black sought to conserve him for the stretch run. Indeed, they managed in the third to cut the lead to just 4 points on an Adams layup; but he had to return to the bench, and it ballooned into double digits again.

Digi lost Shaquille Crawford at the end of the third, and Matthew Smiling went to a four forward line-up, all lithe, lean and mean, length and speed, of Devin Daly, Luther Page, Farron Louriano and Nigel Jones, along with Tzul. And that, as they say, that was what it wrote.

Adams’ layup, again, brought the Sharks within 9, 80-71, with 7:40 left to play; but two personal fouls and two technical fouls later he was gone with 6:28 remaining.

Belmopan Bandits hosted the defending champs, San Pedro Tiger Sharks on Friday night at the Hilltop basketball court in Belmopan.

Belmopan Bandits jumped out to an early 15–2 lead, but San Pedro was able to cut the deficit to 2 points, 45–43, going into the half. In the third quarter San Pedro grabbed the lead, which they maintained to the final whistle, winning 86–69. Tiger Sharks was led by Antone Robinson, Jr., who had the game high with 23 pts to go with 11 boards, while Jihad Wright sank 19 pts and grabbed 13 boards, and Francis Arana finished with 14 pts, 7 dimes and 4 caroms. In a losing effort, Khalil Jabbie was the high man for the Bandits with 17 pts, 5 rebs and 4 assists, while Brandon Flowers scored 14 pts to go with 6 rebs, and Richard Smith II registered another double-double with 12 pts and 16 rebs.
