There were two games played in the LIME National Basketball playoffs last night (Friday) at the Lindo Park.
These were the first games in a best-of-three series in the second semi-finals.
Game 1 – In a hard-fought game which went down to the wire, the Juggernauts of Salisbury overcome a very determined Gloria Shillingford Raptors, 76 points to 74 points. With one minute remaining in the game, the Juggernauts took control and made their free throws when the Raptors were forced to foul their opponents to stop the clock, but with poise and control Juggernauts maintained their cool.
Top-scoring for the Juggernauts were Esmond Andrew 20 pts, Sheldon Vidal 17 pts and Dean Vidal 16 pts while for Raptors Steve Hypolite, a current national player, had 20 pts, Curtis Akiel 15 pts and Devon Barton 16 pts.
Game 2 – The Premier Division saw the domination of the Glam X-Men taking care of a determined United Insurance Sharks of Scotshead and winning by a 20-point margin; the final scores X-Men 80 points to Sharks’ 60 points. Top-scoring for the X-men were big Garth Joseph dominating inside with 18 pts, McDonald Fontaine 15 pts and Davidson Toulon 13 pts.
