The match-ups and home-court advantage for
the 2013 Hoop of Life Community Basketball League
Big-Four semifinals are set following the draw on
Saturday at the VIP Lounge at the Hasely Crawford
With the exception of semifinal debutant Maloney,
which is the last team to qualify for the last-four
after defeating Enterprise 115-42 in match one in
Maloney on Wednesday, and 89-79 in the return
match in Chaguanas on Friday night, defending
champion Laventille, third placed finisher Caledonia,
and La Romaine have all returned seeking glory.
Both semifinals are mega match-ups.
Laventille, which was beaten by 29 points by Mal-
oney in last year s quarterfinal contest, advanced to
the million-dollar finals behind a 33-points win at
St Barb s in the second leg.
In Saturday s draw, Laventille agreed to travel to
Maloney for tonight s (Monday) semifinal first leg.
It will be a crucial match for both teams. During
their preliminaries, Maloney, which has a wealth of
talent led by Shawn Lawrence and former national
junior standout Wayne "Warlord" Richards, Kenyatta
Alfred and Richard Scipio, lost one match by default,
while Laventille which is spearheaded by national
forward Steven "Lighter" Lewis and guard Kurt
"Coto" Christian, was beaten by Morvant.
La Romaine, which was beaten by Caledonia in
the third-place play-off last season, is perhaps the
most balanced team among the four with the likes
of national point-guard Derrick Boxill, who has aver-
aged 23 points per game, and forward Adrian Joseph,
easily the best talent on the team with an average
of 21 points per game.
La Romaine will be seeking revenge for last year s
disappoint performance, which ended at Paradise
Heights in Morvant, the venue for Tuesday night s
Caledonia will put on show national centre Wilt
Vincent, his brother and talented forward Wesley
Vincent, the Hoop of Life 2012 Most Promising Player
and Kyeon Joseph.

are ICC Umpire Peter Nero, top local official Anthony
Sanowar and the experienced Lalman Kowlessar,
president of the T&TSUA and second vice president
of the T&T Cricket Board (T&TCB).
According to Farouk Hosein, a leading official of
the Central Zone of the T&TCB, the sessions are
open to all umpires desirous of refreshing their skill
and for novices who intend to get involved in cricket
Hosein said it is important that the umpires avail
themselves of the wealth of knowledge available and
is also looking forward to attracting a fresh, young
cadre of officials to serve the sport for the next gen-
eration of cricketers.
Hosein said among the topics to be discussed
tomorrow are the news laws which are being applied
to the game and that the sessions will continue in
the coming weeks.
