Bermuda lose to Texans

Bermuda suffered their second straight defeat on day two of the Cayman Basketball Festival in the Cayman Islands yesterday.

The men's national team went down 57-78 against unbeaten Port Arthur, Texas at the John Gray High School.

Jorel Smith again led Bermuda's scoring with 13 points while Christian Liyanage chipped in with 11. Isaac Jackson was Port Arthur's top scorer with a game-high 39 points with Jamarion Brown adding 15 and Michael Hogg ten.

Bermuda were scheduled to play host nation Cayman in their penultimate match last night before closing out their campaign against Port Arthur today.

Bermuda suffered a 85-49 defeat against Cayman in their tournament opener on Thursday. Smith led the scorers with 24 points. The top team among the trio at the end of the double round-robin tournament will be crowned champions.
