Fiji - Samoa 65:58
Fiji team continued to dominate the courts in Samoa. They grabbed another victory at the South Pacific Games and remained with a perfect record in the ladder. The win also guaranteed the spot in the Final game for Fiji. Samoa needed a victory by 5 points or more to advance to the title decider but could not beat the main stronghold at the tournament. Fiji entered the game confidently enough and posted an early 22:16 advantage. The home side leveled the game in the second quarter and managed to perform a 14:14 second quarter but still trailed by 6 points at halftime 30:36. The things never changed for Samoa after the break as they still could not find the clue to Fiji defense and limped behind. The gap widened to 9 points at the start of the fourth stanza and Samoa needed heroics to ensure the Final birth. However it did not come and the hosts just outplayed 2 points but it had little impact on the outcome. Fiji will play in the Final.
Marques Wippy paced Fiji with 16 points and 6 boards. Adrian Bossley contributed 14 points for the winners. Samoa responded with 17 points from Julius Barnes (186-G-81, college: Stanford). Brandyn Akana had 11 points in a losing effort.
Fiji shot solid 50% from the field and 57% from charity stripe. They pulled down 48 rebounds and committed just 4 turnovers.
Fiji will most probably face Guam in the Final game.

Fiji: Marques Wippy 16+6 boards, Adrian Bossley 14
Samoa: Julius Barnes 17, Brandyn Akana 11
