Street Legends set for exciting conclusion on Saturday

Arguably the most extensive community basketball league in the country, is about to wrap up its fifth season, with championship games in all four divisions.
The Urban Renewal Commission/Street Legends Summer Basketball League concludes its 2014 season this Saturday at the BTC/Cynthia "Mother" Pratt Basketball Court in Coconut Grove. Just about all of the teams battling for the various championships have been decided. The final two teams will be decided tonight, when the semi-finals in the Baby Legends (8 to 11 years old) and men's divisions continue.
Tonight at the park, the Englerston Urban Renewal Baby Legends will take on the Nassau Village Urban Renewal team; in the men's division, the defending champions, Garden Hills Hillsiders, will be challenged by Englerston. The winners will advance to the finals on Saturday where the Golden Gates "Get Buckets" Crew Baby Legends and the Carmichael Road Surgeons, in the men's division, await.
In the women's division, Kemp Road, led by veteran player/coach Sherelle Cash will take on Fox Hill, guided by Randy Cunningham; in the 19-and-under division, the Bahamas Waste/Tall Pines Teleos Christian Academy team will take on Nassau Village. Both of those championship games are set for Saturday night.
The Baby Legends championship game will get things started, at 5 p.m. on Saturday. The women's championship game will follow, at 6 p.m.; the 19-and-under championship game will follow that, and the men's championship game will bring the curtain down on what has been the most exciting Street Legends' season to date. It will bring to an end 10 weeks of exciting basketball action between the various communities in New Providence.
"I'm expecting this conclusion to be historic - the best finish ever," said league organizer, Wilton Russell, yesterday. "The various communities, at large, have embraced us, and that was one of the main goals of the tournament. The Garden Hills team [men's division], in particular, always has a huge following. They really come out and support their team, and that has spilled over into the other communities as well.
"This grand conclusion is going to be truly exciting. It will be very interesting to see who will walk away with the overall titles because all of the teams are evenly balanced. Also, we have a huge line-up in terms of entertainment. The Urban Renewal Band will be performing, entertaining the crowd, and there will be other activities as well."
The two remaining semi-final games will get underway at 6 p.m. at the BTC/Cynthia "Mother" Pratt Basketball Court tonight, thereby completing the line-up for Saturday's championship games.
The league, which was initially set to host Family Island teams this year, got started on Saturday, June 28. Russell said that one of the main goals is to always create something for Bahamian youngsters to do during the summer months. He said that, even though they fell short of one of their goals of attracting teams from the Family Islands this year, he is quite satisfied with the level of involvement by the number of teams locally.
"Funding is always a challenge for us, and with us trying to bring in some Family Island teams this year, that issue arose again. It is costly to bring teams in and to accommodate them and so forth. Last year, we got two teams down, but this year, their budget was kind of tight, so we had to forego that," said Russell.
In the men's division, the Englerston Urban Renewal team will be looking to advance to its fifth-straight championship game when its semi-final match is held tonight. The players will certainly have their work cut out for them, going up against the defending champions Garden Hills Hillsiders. That game is set for 8 p.m. tonight.
The Englerston team which has never won the title despite advancing to four straight finals, will be led by Zach Pennerman, Lloyd Bailey and Kenneth Pinder. The defending champions Garden Hills Hillsiders, who lost their first two games this season before rebounding to make the semi-finals, will be led by Tavares Roker, Mecca Watson and league most valuable player (MVP), Randy Williams.
The winner will meet the Carmichael Road Surgeons in the championship game on Saturday night. The Surgeons, who disposed of Richmond Maycock and the Sea Breeze Blowers in their semi-final contest, are expected to be led by David "Skittles" Taylor, Henry Rolle Jr. and Steven Rose in the championship game. They haven't lost a game all season and defeated the Blowers on their home court to advance to the championship game.
