Alex Carcamo ready for the game against Puerto Rico

As we reported earlier in the newscast Belize has emerged victorious over Cuba in the Centro Basket Tournament in Santo Domingo.  Instrumental in the huge win was Alex Carcamo who was also injured several times during today’s ball game.  News Five’s William Neal caught up with Carcamo shortly after and he told us how they pulled off the upset.

“How’s the injury?”

Alex Carcamo, Player, Belize National Basketball Team

“I’m good, I’m good; I just cramped up. I’m a little too old to be doing that dunk. I should’ve known better but you know I wanted to give a little excitement to the crowd.”

William Neal

“How important was today’s win for you?”

Alex Carcamo

“It was very important. I mean we know our backs were against the wall and it seemed like each team that got blown out in this tournament came back the next day and blew out the next team. So we were just hoping to stand right in that line.”

William Neal

“Now, going up against Puerto Rico, any predictions?”

Alex Carcamo

“No, no predictions at all. This is a chance for us to put our names on the map. Puerto Rico’s gonna come out light and think that we’re not gonna play hard but everybody played great today; Richie stepped up big for us. It’s important for us to have Darwin here because he takes the pressure off of Milt and you know everybody just came out and played great. I’m doing the best I can down low with these bruises but after the tournament I’m gonna be beat up, I’m gonna need a good massage but you know it’s all good.”

William Neal

“Now, how important was yesterday’s day off?”

Alex Carcamo

“I think for the older people it was highly important. For me, I was ready to play yesterday and today. I just wanted to come back out because I wasn’t happy with my performance against Mexico and it turned out to be a good thing for us on this side. So I’m glad we did have that day off.”

William Neal

“Alright, well congratulations again Alex.”
