Rookie forward Kyeon Joseph was expected to give a big performance in game two of the men's Big-Four final and that he did, helping Defence Force emerge champion of the North Zone Basketball League in his first season as a soldier with the team. Joseph scored a play-off best 29 points to pilot the army/coastguard combination unit to a 93-79 win over Straker Nets on Saturday night at the Jean Pierre Sports Complex in Port-of-Spain. The previous weekend, Defence Force opened the best-in-three series final with a 89-59 win led by Joseph, who then netted a team-high 16 points for the winner. The fierce competitor continued in that impressive fashion and produced 20 points in the first half, marshalling his team to a 21-15 first quarter lead and a 51-44 advantage at the interval. The 'Teteron Boys' remained in control into the third stanza and outscored their opponents 15-13, to lead 66-57 going into the final quarter. Straker Nets, led by duo point-guard Sadiki Guerra (188-G-87, college: Texas Coll.) and centre Allister Martin, improved offensively in the fourth quarter, and put up 22 points compared to Defence Force's 27, not enough to overcome its huge deficit throughout the match. Joseph, with valuable support from national standout Steven 'Lighter' Lewis and Devon Waddell (188-F), who connected 16 and 12 points, respectively, helped their team stay unbeaten in all nine matches played this season and replaced inactive Police as the Zone's champion. For Straker, Guerra put in 15 points and Martin added 12.
Third place went to the University of T&T (UTT) despite losing the second match of their two-game third place play-off contest 75-71 to Trailblazers, UTT still bagged the bronze medals in the first match-up of the night's double-header. For Trailblazers, which is managed by veteran coach Stephen Leonce and assisted by former national standout Lennox Sobers, led 18-15 after the first period, 36-33 at half-time but UTT rallied in the third to overturn its deficit and take a slim one-point lead (49-48) after three-quarters of play. However, forward Fabrice Fisher connected on 17 of his match-high 39 points in the quarter and that guided Trailblazers to its best performance in the North Zone in a decade. Assisting Fisher on offence was Juvani Andrews, who scored 11. For UTT, Brandon Kelly and Lazard Campbell both dropped 12 points.
