EAST END, Tortola, VI- A game high 26 points from senior National player Kennedy Bass was just not enough to save his team Nuttin Nice from a second straight defeat to 49th Street when game three in the best of 5 finals of the Lorenzo Jennings Christmas Basketball League took place at the Greenland basketball court on January 26, 2013.

In fact there was nuttin nice for their fans to cheer about as 49th Street grabbed rebounds at will and even seemed to find the basket at will on their way to an 81-73 points victory, a decent score-line in the end as Nuttin Nice trailed by more than 18 points at one stage.

Devon Wattley was no doubt the driving force behind 49th Street on both ends of the court as he top scored for his team with 22 points and had an impressive game high 16 rebounds.

Bradley Stevens (21 points) and Nathaniel Malone (20 Points, 5 Rebounds, 4 Assists) also contributed strongly to the 49th Streets convincing victory.

49th Street looked purposefully from the onset but were most effective from the 2nd quarter as they played good systematic basketball to race to a 62-49 half time lead and ended that half in style when Travis Malone hit a buzzer beater from long range much to the delight of the 49th Street fans, who were a lot more vocal than Nuttin Nices.

There was some controversy with just over 7 minutes remaining in the final quarter when the scorers table indicated that Bass was fouled out. Bass argued successfully that it was a mistake and that he had two more fouls to give.

He would eventually foul out in the final minute but not before embarking on a one man show that pulled Nuttin Nice from a humiliating defeat. Some highlights from him included a jumper from behind the arc and some daring drives to the basket.

Jason Edwin, who had a consistent game, was also a major factor for Nuttin Nice despite defeat. He had 20 points and 7 rebounds.

The strategy for 49th Street, according to coach Wasi Charlesweln, is to close out each opponent from getting free shots. Once we are going to them man to man we beating them, we walking away from them. In the first game we were tripped in a zone and they were able to set up the outside man and get the free shots but we realised what was happening and we came out this time man to man and it has worked for us.

49th Street now lead the series 2-1 and will be looking to close things out tonight at the Greenland court.

We coming out man to man again, thats how we won two games in a row and we coming back the same way, so we looking to finish it here tomorrow (today).

As for the Nuttin Nice loss, Bass quickly pointed it to poor defense work by his unit. We were not playing defense, we not playing in front of a man.

Bass is, however, confident that tonight will belong to Nuttin Nice. We have to come play defense...Tomorrow (today) we going to come to play, it isnt finished yet. There will be a game 5.

The 2012 East End/Long Look Christmas Basketball League, named after Lorenzo 'Black Boy' Jennings who was considered the 'Pearl' of the Dreds basketball team, opened on Sunday, December 2 and could very well wrap up tonight if Bass and Nuttin Nice fail to bring their D (defensive) game.
