Image via: Mickey JosephThe Lime National Basketball Championship came to a successful end this past weekend with the Gatorade Blazers winning their fourth championship in 10 seasons. Amidst some controversy in respect of the new dimension of home court advantage,the basketball finals continued as planned.The new comers No Look team built with veteran players made the championship series exciting and entertaining. The series went down to the final game in front of a huge, possible the largest crowd, for the season at Lindo Park with Blazers defeating the No Look team by 11 points.The final scores were 84 points to 73 points. Championship records are as follows;1. 2001 season – Champion Cimpex Knicks – coach Mickey Joseph2. 2002 season – Champion Cimpex Knicks – coach Mickey Joseph3. 2003 season – Champion Cimpex Knicks – coach Mickey Joseph4. 2004 season – Champion CCD Blazers – coach Edgar Robinson5. 2005 – No Basketball – Season called off6. 2006 season – Champion Domlec X-Men – coach Ivan Jnobaptiste/Kevin Sylvester7. 2007 season – Champion Paix Bouche Eagles – coach David Johnson8. 2008 season – Champion RJS Blazers – coach Edgar Robinson9-2009 season – Champion RJS Blazers – coach Edgar Robinson10- 2010 season – Champion Glam X-Men – coach Mickey Joseph11 -2011 Season – Champion Gatorade Blazers – coach Edgar Robinson. During the past have decade, we have seen the rise of basketball for the period 2002 to 2007 and now we are proud to see basketball in 2011 take its place as the number two spectator sport after football ( can be challenged). Basketball is on the rise again thanks, to strong and dedicated leadership. As a basketball player, administrator and coach, I now call on the Government to work with the Association to build and put in place a national basketball facility capable of hosting regional tournaments. I am not calling for a community based court but a court which will be under the management of the national association and Government of Dominica. Its also worth recognizing the development of communities outside of Roseau which have become basketball powers and can compete for any national championship. Special recognition to Paix Bouche Eagles, 2007 national champion and Wesley Raptors 2010 & 2011 Division 1 champion. In addition the Dominica Amateur Basketball Association will be organizing an official closing ceremony at a date to be announced to recognize the sponsors, players, teams, coaches and game officials. I would like to personally congratulate the Gatorade Blazers on winning the 2011 championship.Mickey Joseph

Harrison, OH—The Harrison City Council has moved forward with plans to establish a designated outdoor refreshment area, or DORA, in Harrison’s historic downtown district. A DORA allows people to enjoy alcoholic beverages while walking between participating establishments.The City still needs approval from the State of Ohio, erect signs, and purchase designated cups before the DORA is put in place. It may be a month or more before the DORA is established, but it’s expected to bring more foot traffic to Harrison’s downtown businesses. Diners, shoppers, and visitors will purchase the designated cups at participating businesses, which so far include 1860 Taproom & Bottleshop, Coffee Peddlar, Heist + Co., Market Street Grille, and Valley House.
Press Association Michael Conlan insists he will throw away his Commonwealth Games medal in Glasgow if it is any colour other than gold. Northern Ireland’s Olympic bronze medallist shrugged off a head cut to claim a unanimous verdict over Mathew Martin of Nauru in his opening bantamweight bout. Conlan’s face was left streaked in blood after the third-round head clash but the small zigzag cut is not expected to compromise his future in the competition. Conlan said: “Gold at the Commonwealth Games would rank up there with the Olympics because it would mean winning a competition instead of finishing third. “Gold is the only one I want – I don’t want silver and I don’t want bronze and I will throw them away if I do get them. “On my day if I come in in the right frame of mind nobody is going to beat me. Everybody has their off days, but I’m not going to have an off day at these Commonwealth Games.” Conlan was predictably too strong for the 19-year-old from the tiny Pacific atoll, and would have marked his opener down as a useful workout but for his final round cut scare. The Belfast man opened up in round two, clattering two right hands which forced standing counts and left the referee on the brink of stopping the contest. Despite an increase in cuts since world governing body AIBA voted to abolish headguards for men in the wake of the London Olympics, Conlan maintains it was probably the right decision. He added: “I loved fighting with the headguard but cuts are going to be dangerous when you turn professional so you’re better off learning now. Boxing is just going to have to get used to it.”
