3rd Rock Entertainment Open Basketball final on tonight at MSC hard court…
The top seed Retrieve Raiders will have to be on the top of their game if they hope to stave off the challenge of the third seed Victory Valley Royals when the teams clash tonight at 9.00pm in the final of the GT Beer Open basketball championship which was promoted by 3rdRock Entertainment for the second year at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard Court. The supporting game is between the losing semi finalists Kwakwani and Half Mile Bulls at 7.00pm.
The Royals are the inform team after taking care of the second ranked Half Mile Bulls and now look in good form to upset the Raiders who are the top ranked club in Linden.
Royals having placed third in the two previous tournaments, Malta Supreme Open won by the Bulls and the 104.3 Power FM Open championship captured by Raiders, are ranked at three and with the combined showing of Orlando Glasgow, Harold Adams, Marlon Pollydore and Trevor Profit must fancy themselves to walk away with the title.
The number one rated Raiders will field a team that is likely to have former national shooting forward Neil Marks, national player Keon Cameron and Omally Sampson who has been in good scoring touch in their squad. The Raiders reached the final of the National Club Championship where they lost to Colts and must start as the favourites, but this Royals’ side are on a run and will take the best shot come tonight.
The Bulls having been second ranked entering this tournament must be disappointed in losing twice to the Royals and will no doubt to want to lose the Kwakwani side which looks good in transition play. The Bulls however, must field their best team if they want to get past Kwakwani while, in beating the second seed Bulls, Kwakwani will be making a statement.
A number of top prizes at stake including the winner’s $100,000 purse, the second team will get $75,000 and third $25,000 while there will be a Most Valuable Player Award and one for the Most Disciplined team.
