Arnett Gardens rock Upper Room Church to retain basketball title - Aug 30, 2015

THE community of Arnett Gardens was the scene of another title haul Sunday night when Arnett Gardens Rockers routed Upper Room Church 81-72 in the WorldNet Community Basketball League best-of-five finals to sweep the series 3-0 and lift the Howard McCatty Trophy in front of a massive crowd at the Anthony; Sports Complex Courts. Earlier in the football season, the Arnett Gardens Football Club won the 2014-2015 Red Stripe Premier League title for the fourth time. In basketball, the Rockers retained the title they won last year after a surprise 72-58 come from behind win over Waterhouse Blazers in the INSPORTS/Southern Conference Community Basketball League title at the Waterhouse mini-stadium. The Junglists, however, made no such mistake this year playing at home. So pleased with the turnout at this year's games, Jamaica Amateur Basketball Association President Dr Mark Broomfield called on Jamaican businesses to come forward and sponsor local basketball in a more meaningful way. Basketball, he noted, is rapidly becoming the leading sport in inner-city communities islandwide. Sunday night's game was considered the most competitive in the series. One that challenged an apparent laden-legged Arnett Gardens Rockers during the opening salvo to dig deep among its reserves to stave off a relenting Upper Room Church in an attempt to get back into the game. This was after the visitors had taken the initiative and applied pressure in an all-out drive to win game-three to remain competitive after losing the first two. From the start, Upper Room Church looked businesslike. During this time the Arnett Gardens Rockers looked a disorganised, hapless bunch struggling to stay afloat, while Jermaine 'Juju' Brown, who ended with 20 points and five assists, Dawayne Pottinger (17 points, 14 rebounds) and Keniel Allen (10 points) took the opportunity to excel to take the score to 13-4 early in the first quarter. Being a much better team they managed to do some damage repair and trailed 17-28 at the end of the first quarter. The damage repair continued to be a mere six points at the halfway stage, 38-44. The Rockers then shook off the malaise and closed in rapidly to win the third and fourth quarters and sealed the issue to retain their title. Man of the tournament Kwayme 'Bulgie' Lawrence, who bagged five trophies in the championship, led the way with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Vivian Spence, the three-point expert, chipped in 16 points, seven rebounds, and two assists, with John 'Whiteman' Brandt (Jnr) adding 15 points with four assists; Delano 'Nafty' Mallett supported with 10 points, six rebounds and two assists; Arnell 'Sharlot' Campbell got 12 points with 11 rebounds along with Fernando Young, who also contributed 12 rebounds with four assists. In addition to winning the Howard McCatty Trophy, Arnett Gardens also received a cheque of $50,000 from sponsors WorldNet Investments, while the runners-up Upper Room Church of Grant's Pen took home $25,000.
