The Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association (GABA) knockout tournament involving 1st, 2nd and Under-23 teams continued on Monday night at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) with two more matches in the second week of play.
The matches were contested in the Under-23 and Open divisions and Eagles Basketball Club both featured in and lost. After already being knocked out in the second division last week, a tougher fight was expected from the club that lost to Plaisance Guardians 76-68 in the Under-23 and 64-60 in the Open division.
In the youth game began at 19:00hrs, Eagles led the game throughout the first three quarters but a final quarter blitz by the Guardians saw them being outplayed 23-16, squandering a good opportunity in the process. Terrence Daniels was the backbone of Guardians’ win, netting a game high 25 points, being assisted with eight points from Anton Fileen. Meanwhile, Shamar Huntley (19 points) and Patrice Agrippa (14 points) turned in good performances for the losers.
Plaisance Guardians are now undefeated in all three divisions.
In the Open game, it was a similar fourth quarter blowout that accounted for Eagles who led the game throughout the first three quarters eventually losing to Nets. Travis Belgrave returned for Eagles after serving a half year ban and the prodigy scored a game high 15 points that wasn’t enough to prevent Eagles Basketball Club from being knocked out in all three divisions of the annual GABA tournament as Nets outscored them 21-13 in the final quarter.
The tournament continues throughout the week from Monday to Thursday with two matches at the same CASH venue each night from 19:00hrs. (Calvin Chapman)
