Laventille to challenge for $1.5 million first prize
Laventille United, the defending champion of the Hoop of Life Community Basketball League became the first team to book a place in this year’s Big-Four after demolishing Santa Flora 125-52 in the second match of the two-part series, on Thursday. The win put Laventille a step closer to the improved top prize of TT$1.5 million. Laventille secured the win after leading, 38-15, 61-27, 98-35 in the first three quarters. For the victorious team, former national junior centre-court Ashton DuMurrell led all scorers with 31 points, while point-guard Orlando Mapp aided with 25 points, which included six three-point baskets. Forward Andy Best also helped with 18 points which included four threes.
For Santa Flora, the first team from South Sector One to reach the quarterfinal stages, only forward Dennison John hit double-digits with 26 points. Meanwhile, Caledonia is just one win away from booking its place in the Big-Four finals after a hard fought 78-71 win over St Joseph in the first match of their quarterfinal contest at Paradise Heights Basketball Court, Morvant. Caledonia was expected to face a tough task when it travelled to Mt Hope last evening in the first match of the two-part fixture. Also in quarterfinal action last night was La Horquetta which made the trip to Lucky St Basketball Court, to face La Romaine.
