Despite calls by clubs, coaches
and other stakeholders to post-
pone the National Basketball
Championships, vice president of
organisation and development of
the NBFTT, Barry Stewart, is
adamant that the tournament will
proceed as planned.
The event opened on Saturday
at the Jean Pierre Complex but two
of the four teams scheduled to play,
BTU Ballers and Petro Jazz, failed
to show for the 5 pm bounce off.
In the second game, Detour Shak
Attack beat Valencia Heat 68-64.
Minister of Sports, Darryl Smith,
who was expected to give the fea-
ture address, failed to do so, in spite
of his presence.
Smith was joined by president
of the Caribbean Basketball Con-
federation (CBC), Glyne Clarke, and
president of the T&T Olympic
Committee (TTOC) Brian Lewis,
who was also expected to address
the gathering but who also did not.
The tournament continued last
night with a clash between the
Ministry of Sports Schoolaz and
Valencia Heat from 6.30 pm at the
Eastern Regional Indoor Sports
Arena in Tacarigua and NBFTT
officials were expected to distribute
fixtures for the tournament to par-
Asked why the first match was
not played, Stewart said BTU Ballers
did not have sufficient uniforms
for players as their manager had
only recently returned from abroad.
He said this was communicated to
NBFTT officials, but the informa-
tion did not reach him in time.
Stewart said be believed that
some clubs were deliberately cre-
ating confusion by expressing
unwarranted concerns that con-
tradicted key decisions made by
In clarifying this statement, he
explained that the Championship
was a fixed tourney on the basket-
ball calendar which should have
been held some three months ago.
"The only real concern for the
Championship coming off was the
prize structure which stated that
the winning prize would have been
$10, 000," Stewart said.
"Even I didn't agree with that
but that was sorted out as the prize
money was increased to $25, 000
but yet they want us to postpone
He said it was also difficult to
get two other teams to play the
opening game because of the limited
Stewart also took offence to a
newspaper report by a group of
concerned coaches calling for the
postponement of all basketball
related tournaments until a proper
assessment, planning and organi-
sation element was implemented.
It stated also that following a
meeting on last Wednesday, club
officials Kern George and Melissa
Guerero called on the NBFTT for
an open-forum type general meet-
ing to be held among all stakehold-
ers to chart a way forward and
develop a calendar of events for
Stewart cleared the air, saying
Wednesday's session was not a
meeting but rather a discussion to
find out the possibility of holding
a youth and women's tournament

THE HAGUE---The Dutch soccer
association banned FC Twente from
European competition for three years
yesterday as punishment for "delib-
erately misleading" the body about a
deal to sell player transfer fee rights
to an outside investor.
The Royal Netherlands Football
Association (KNVB) added that
Twente's professional license will be
revoked if it fails to fully cooperate
with an independent investigation into
the club's structure, and the club will
be fined €45,250 (US$49,400).
Twente said it would not appeal the
sanctions. It said they "hit hard at the
heart of our club."
The sanctions come in the middle
of a terrible season on and off the pitch
for Twente. Winner of its only Eredi-
visie title in 2010, Twente is currently
16th in the 18-team top flight.
The federation said the punishment
follows Twente's failure to reveal full
details of a third-party ownership con-
tract with Malta-based Doyen Sports
FIFA has banned third-party own-
ership as a threat to the game's integrity
because investors force transfers to
make a profit.
The Football Leaks website last
month published a contract between
Twente and Doyen in which Doyen
agreed to pay Twente €5 million
(US$5.3 million) for between ten and
50 per cent of the transfer fee rights
for seven players. The deal was signed
in 2014, before FIFA outlawed third-
The KNVB said the sanctions were
imposed by its licensing committee.
The association also is sending
Twente's dealings with Doyen Sports
to the KNVB prosecutor and to FIFA.
"They have to judge whether the
contract between FC Twente and
Doyen Sports breaches national or
international football rules," the KNVB
