Anew win­ner will be crowned in the boys Un­der 19 Tuckers Na­tional Sec­ondary Schools Bas­ket­ball Cham­pi­onship in Suva to­mor­row. This was af­ter de­fend­ing cham­pion John Wes­ley Col­lege did not com­pete at the pool games in Lau­toka ear­lier this week. Yat Sen Sec­ondary (YSS) will face western gi­ant Natabua High School (NHS) while Lat­ter Day Saints (LDS) face Nadi cham­pion Swami Vivekananda Col­lege (SVC). The JWC U19 team had suc­cess­fully de­fended the boys’ ti­tle since 2014. De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Suva Gram­mar School is on track to re­tain the U19 girls’ ti­tle but they have to beat a tough LDS in the semi­fi­nal while YSS will face NHS in the other semis.

Last year SGS beat Natabua 22-19 in a nail bit­ing fi­nal. In the U17 grade, LDS will be de­fend­ing both the girls and boys ti­tles. LDS meets Gospel High and Jai Narayan Col­lege plays St Joseph Sec­ondary (SJSS) in the semi-fi­nals. LDS meets Marist Broth­ers High School (MBHS) in the U17 boys and JNC play In­ter­na­tional Sec­ondary School (ISS).

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Marist Broth­ers High School will face off YSS in the re­peat of last year’s boys U15 fi­nal.

LDS face Nadi cham­pion SVC in a pul­sat­ing en­counter.

U15 girls de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons LDS will be in full force against YSS while and SGS plays JAS.

Bas­ket­ball Fiji ad­min­is­tra­tor, Leah Seru said the semi­fi­nals and fi­nal had to be can­celled off in Lau­toka on Tues­day be­cause of the un­favourable weather.
