"Changing the way we interact with People!"
It was Christmas for the Valencia Heat as they
cruised to their second victory of the National
Basketball Championship with an impressive 92-
69 win over Siparia Ball Players on Tuesday
night at the Eastern Regional Indoor Sports Arena
The Heat proved to be just too much for the
winless Ball Players as forward Kyeon Joseph
drained a game high 27 points to confine the Siparia
men to yet another defeat. The win was a welcome
result for the East team after they were clobbered
by overwhelming favourites Police in their last
match a week ago.
However, on Tuesday the Heat gave a more all
round performance with centre Michael Saunders
contributing 15 and the hardworking forward Wayne
Richard scored eight points in their winning effort.
Meanwhile, Dennison John continued his string
of impressive performances, in spite of ending on
the losing team. John on Tuesday battled his way
to 19 points which indicates his need for help if
his team is to have a chance of even finishing as
Apart from his 19, the Ball Players also received
14 points from Jazel Cedeno and 13 from Abede
Benjamin in the defeat. After three weeks of action
in the tournament to date, the Siparia men are
yet to receive their first victory of the tournament.
After the game, Heat coach Junior Williams said
the result was a good one for him when you con-
sider that his team does not have a venue to train.
He told the Guardian that his team was given per-
mission to use the Maloney Indoor Complex to
practice by then Minister of Sports Brent Sancho,
but this fell flat with the change of administration.
"At present, we are at a disadvantage in the
tournament because we do not train and we are
coming up against a number of sponsored teams
that train regularly," Williams said. Yesterday,
Williams spent the entire day making calls to get
a facility for his team to train ahead of their next
match against Petro Jazz on January 10 at the
Central Regional Indoor Sports Arena in Chagua-
He is predicting an extremely difficult encounter
against the Petro Jazz saying they are an organised
team with an experienced coach. Strangely, both
teams last met in the final of the Super 10 Bas-
ketball League two years ago and Williams said
his team will have to prepare if they are to get the
better of their opponents. He promised however
that his team will advance to the Big Four and
maybe to the final of the championship.
Williams also made a call for basketball to be
given a chance, as he pleaded to the public to
come out and watch the matches and forget the
negatives that have been plaguing the sport.
In another match Shak Attack clobbered Upstate
88-50 as they continued to build momentum
enroute to the final of the championship. It was
the usual suspects that formalised the win for
them. Andrew Ifill and Orlando Mapp combined
for 30 points, with each getting 15 apiece) and
Reynold Hospedales added 12 points in Shak
Attacks winning performance.
The central giants got a top score of 18 from
Marvin Allan and seven points each from Kern
Alexis, Kobe Campbell and Aaron Francis in their
Actions continues next Tuesday with Siparia
up against Upstate from 7 pm and Shak Attack
facing the Ministry of Sports Schoolaz in the
second game at 8.30 pm at the Tacraigua venue.
The day after, Quarters will have a date with the
BTU Ballers in the opening game at 7 pm and
Petro Jazz will come up against the Schoolaz at
8.30 pm at the Southern Regional Indoor Sports
Arena in Pleasantville.
