Solomon Islands - Samoa 48:91
Solomon Islands began the South Pacific Games basketball tournament with two straight defeats. In their opening game they faced hosting Samoa and were rallied over 48:91. The outcome was mainly built in the first half when Samoa played tight defence and allowed Solomon Islands to just 12 points. The home side scored 30 points and grabbed an early 30:12 advantage at halftime. Samoa however did not allow Solomon Islands to come any closer after the intermission and drove to a win.
Six Samoa players scored in double figures. Julius Barnes (186-G-81, agency: Octagon, college: Stanford) netted 20 points to lead them. Three players delivered 13 points in a win. Waiges Turueke scored 11 points for Solomon Islands. Goldie Kavi produced 8 points in a losing clause.
