Samuel
O'Garro
After a dramatic game one victory, the Esso Blazers want to seal a title run.

Esso defeated the Dominos Warriors 66-64 last Sunday at Camana Bays Arts and Recreation Centre. The contest served as game one in the best-of-three championship series for the Cayman Islands Basketball Association 2012 national mens league.

Blazers star Samuel O'Garro (195-G-88, college: Eckerd) states the team is focused on a sweep.

We have to come back strong and get the win, OGarro said. We got to win the championship now and make it easier for ourselves. I cant take the stress.

We have to D up and get Boka (Borislav Djordjic (203-F/C-82, college: Stetson)). There are a lot of things we had to go and watch in the film room.

Game two of the series is this Sunday, 3 June, at 7pm at Camana Bay. Game three, if necessary, would be next Sunday, 10 June, at the same time and place.

The Blazers, under head coach Shawn Pitterson and assistant coach Carlos Pastor, squeezed out a win in game one after Dominos lost a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter. OGarro had a pair of three-pointers in the period to cut into the lead. Davion Cotterell split a pair of free throws to tie it and Shaad OGarro had the game-winning fastbreak dunk.

Dominos, the defending national champions, had good showings once again from team captain Collin Anglin and Djordjic of Serbia. Both, however, missed decisive baskets late.

For the record, Esso are the top overall seed and beat the DHL Wolves in three games in the first round. Dominos are the third seed and are coming off a two-game sweep of the Shining Stars Childhood Care and Education Centre.

Cotterell, 20, states a victory over the Warriors this Sunday will hinge on defence.

How do we win game two? From the first quarter, Cotterell said. We have to pick it up. We have to keep playing like how we played in the fourth quarter on Sunday, throughout the whole game. Our offence can play into our defence.

Personally, I didnt play much this year as I transferred schools to Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Florida. I was hungry and I wanted to play. My team trusted me to play here and play hard. Im thankful for that.

Warriors hold off Sol Blazers - 24 days ago
The Warriors defeated the defending champions - Sol Blazers at Clifton Hunter High School Gymnasium last night. The Blazers came out firing on all cylinders, jumping out to an early lead; but the Warriors switched their defense to keep the Blazers off the glass: it paid off! Back came the warriors with a reckless abandon, erasing a 12 point deficit. From there, both teams would trade baskets and runs the entire game, but the Warriors would take the lead with 2 minutes to go and not look b...   [read more]

Sol Blazers remain undefeated - 1 month ago
The defending champions are continuing the dominance throughout the National Men's League 2017 Season. Although they aren't doing it in the emphatic fashion as in past seasons, the Blazers are still a force to be reckoned with. Off season trades saw the exit of started Deandre Simpson (196-F-90, college: Webber Intern.) (who went to the Warriors) and Davie Cotterell (who went to the Silver Bullets) but the Veteran Kevin Maxwell (80) and Triple Double Monster Shaad O'Garro (199-F/G-90, col...   [read more]
