The Faculty of Technology engineered a mammoth victory Friday night when the nation’s
top tertiary institution, University of Guyana (UG), held its Inter-Faculty Basketball Championships at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Owed to strong performances from its seasoned players, Technology built a solid foundation in the first half of the final against the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, before constructing the huge 81-67 win in the second half of the game.
First Division club players, Ruel Ritch and Akeem Kanhai were the architects of the victory with Ritch scoring 23 points and Kanhai a triple-double with 12 points, 30 rebounds and 10 assists. Yoel Meusa had a double-double with 16 points and 16 rebounds.
The game was filled with highlights from Ritch and Kanhai. But the high-point has to be an ally-hoop dunk that the Chinese point guard, Kitfai Sue, lobbed for Kanhai. The fundamentally sound Sue, who clubs are expected to pursue, ended up with 14 points.
The Faulty of Agriculture and Forestry just could not cultivate their offence, despite them being the more talented of the two teams on roster. The Faculty trailed throughout the game, down 25-37 at halftime, before eventually losing.
Seasoned club campaigners, Emmanuel Archibald, Quincy Easton and Nyembeyekere Bacchus led the scoring with Archibald putting up a game high 27 points. Shooting guard, Easton shot his way to 22 points while Bacchus had 12 points.
The Faculty of Agriculture had defeated The Faculty of Social Sciences 75-71 in their semi-final in an exciting contest. Technology had beaten Staff to advance to the final. Staff went on to win the third place game 73-71 with Ewart Smith scoring 38 points.
Apart from Smith, Selvaughn Moseley scored 23 points. Meanwhile, Geoffrey LaRose scored 18 points for Social Sciences while Kadeem Duggan had 16 points and Sonesh Davram 14 points in another thrilling encounter of the annual competition. (Edison Jefford)
