Victory Valley Royals and Jets will lead Linden’s challenge Friday night in the Mackeson ‘King of the Rim’ 3×3 Super Eight Basketball Finale at California Square, East Ruimveldt with Royals entering as the top team from the Mining Community.
Royals topped the Linden zone of the competition with Jets finishing second. Both teams will be in the hunt for the $500,000 first place purse. Comparatively, the two Linden sides possess some different skills that could be threatening Friday night.
Royals is a lethal bunch when given any space; especially when the ball is placed in the hands of shooting guard, Chris Williams, who landed five consecutive daggers from beyond the arc on his way to the grand finale at the MSC Hard Court last week.
Royals has as part of its quartet (three players on-court and one bench player is allowed), former national junior point guard, Marlon Pollydore, Williams along with forwards, Harold Adams and Orlon Glasgow. Adams has been a consistent performer for his team.
Meanwhile, the Webster brothers, representing Jets is an also a tough bunch of players, who will prefer the physical game as opposed to the silky version. The Webster brothers, minus their main lynch-man, Shane, who is on a Georgetown team, enjoys the 3×3 format since it plays directly to their brand of physical basketball.
Their team includes, Alister, Allistair and Joel Webster with D. Thompson to complete their four requisite players. The two Linden squads will face off against teams from East Coast, West Coast and Georgetown in a colossal battle for $800,000 in total prize money. The Runner-up team will collect $300,000 with both teams receiving trophies.
