Legs & Kings to battle in Senior Division Final

The Senior Division will be a replay of the Short and Sweet 2014 league semi final thriller as the Legs will play the Kings in the Best of Five Championship Series.

In 2014 not only did the Kings almost make it a 2-0 sweep, but were seconds away from winning the decisive game three, when the Legs pulled a rabbit out of the hat to win 99-98, having been down by 4 points with less than 21 seconds to go.

There was no such drama for the Legs in reaching the 2016 final as they easily overcame the Skulls, 105-89 and 81-71.

Dionne M. Blyden top scored in game one with 28 points, Franklyn Penn (185-PG-97) added 25 and Kennedy Bass (196-F-81, college: Anderson, SC) doubled with 10 points and 11 rebounds, while Jason A. Edwin notched 16 points. Jomoiri Dagou scored 30 points for the Skulls.

In game two, Dagou again top scored for the Skulls with 23 and JB Brodie notched 17 points and 10 rebounds, but they had no answer to doubles from Bass and Penn, who finished with 22 points, 16 rebounds and 20 with 15 rebounds respectively.

The Kings also progressed into the mouthwatering final smoothly with a 75-63 win in game one and an 89-56 victory in game two against All Ah Wee, with Killven M. Samuel hitting a combined 58 points and picking off 17 rebounds.

Jevon K. Serrant scored 22 points for All Ah Wee in game one and Eustace 'Boss' Freeman 14, whilst in game two, Juan Richard scored 14 with 13 rebounds, Rowan Victor 12 points and Leslee Smith (203-F-90, college: Nebraska) 9 with 11 rebounds for the Kings and Enrico Harrigan 15 with 10 rebounds, Travis Isaac 10 with 11 rebounds and Nathaniel 'Nat' Malone 11 points for All Ah Wee.
