Solomon Islands on three-game skid

The Solomon Islands national basketball has suffered their third consecutive loss to the 2007 Pacific Games basketball defending champions, Guam, by a very big margin 102-44 last night.

Missing three points shooter, Waige Turueke, the team found it hard to extend their score as Guam cruised past extending their lead in every quarter of the match.

The team will be playing their deciding match against the Federated State of Micronesia (FSM) today.

If they win they have the chance to move on for the cross play but if they lose then they will have to wait in Noumea for another week before accompanying the rest of the Team Solomon to return home.
