Tiger Sharks and Hurricanes clash for #1 in power rankings

The rivalry of rivalries will be in full display on Saturday night at the Civic Center, as San Pedro Tiger Sharks (2-0) will be hosting Belize Hurricanes (1–0) at 8:30 p.m. Both teams are undefeated, and the winner of this game will have sole claim of the #1 seed in the early part of the season. Both teams have hoisted the NEBL championship twice, being the top two most successful franchises in the NEBL’s early 6-year history. Hurricanes bruised their way to their season opener victory, even though they looked sluggish and out of rhythm. They must make adjustments for Saturday night, since San Pedro Tiger Sharks are coming off a blow-out victory last weekend. Belize Hurricanes have a stacked roster, with one of the deepest benches this season, as Devin, Coope, Brian and Akeem are on their quest for their third championship. To add to their already sturdy line-up, Gene Myvett and Jihad Wright will both be making their season debut with the Tiger Sharks on Saturday night to join forces with Ashton Edwards, who is lighting it up behind the three-point arc, and Mission, who is back on the ship to control game pace and tempo. Kurt “Chengo” Burgess grabbed his first NEBL championship last season with Belize Hurricanes, and now he is returning to the Civic as their rival, alongside Martevuius Adams, who is having a great start to this season, after struggling early last season. The intensity of this game, complemented by its importance in the standings and home court advantage for the playoffs, will surely serve up a great dish for all fans and viewers.
