Sandy Point PRIDE secures injunction against SKNABA

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – WITH controversy still brewing within the local basketball arena over a months-long issue, the matter has taken another twist as the Sandy Point PRIDE Organization has secured an injunction against the St. Kitts-Nevis Amateur Basketball Association (SKNABA).

The injunction, which SKNVibes understands was granted late this afternoon (Jan. 31), sought to prevent the Association from going ahead with its proposed replaying of the best of three semifinals in the A Division (Second Division) between the PRIDE and the Conaree Fireballs.

The Fireballs team is coached by the Game’s Commissioner, Harold Wharton, who is at the center of the controversy.

According to a source familiar with the matter, the Sandy Point PRIDE Organization pushed for the injunction after the team received an email from the President of the SKNABA – Romel Tobias – on January 26, indicating that they are to replay the semifinals, with the first game scheduled for this evening.

This came as Tobias noted in his email that they were going ahead with the recommendations made at the appeals hearing.
