Samoa Men’s Basketball: Gold medalists Ezra Tufuga, Theo Mcfarland, Bismarck Densel Joseph and Ryan Paia show what they’ve got as they stand on the winners’ podium at the Minis Games.

The Samoan men’s basketball team tasted sweet success in Vanuatu last week, securing Samoa another gold medal during the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu.

The team Ryan Paia, Ezra Pans Tufuga, Theodore Lorenzo McFarland and Denzel Joseph and coach Stephen Schuster are back home deservedly proud.

According to a statement from Chef De Mission Nynette Saas, the new format for the basketball suited our style of play well.

“This exciting new format of basketball is fast, furious and pretty physical. This is no sport for the shy and timid. 

“What an exciting new format and it is perfectly suited to our style of play.”

The Samoa Men’s Basketball team only lost one of their seven round robin games.

“They looked sharp and good right from the start of the competition. They lost only one game during the round robin competition.”
