Trinidad & Tobago Defence Force basketball team scored a thrilling 81-66 win over Detour Shak Attack in Game 1 of their Best of Three Finals in the Barry Stewart Invitation Tournament. The contest was played on Thursday night at the Jean Pierre Complex, Port of Spain.

From the tip-off Shak Attack jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead with successive shots from ex-Defence Force center Wilt Vincent, Kurt Koto Christian and a Kern George 3-pointer. However, a quick transition layup by Keyon Joseph and a monster dunk from veteran Steven Lighter Lewis who dribble past three defenders from mid-court changed the tempo in favor of the Army team. At the end of the 1st quarter, Defence Force went ahead 29-23 with their starters on the bench.

Early in the second quarter, coach Toney reinstated his starters who scored several transition baskets which included three pointers from Joseph and Lewis. As result, Shak Attack felt further back being outscored 19-12. Defence Force enjoyed a 48-35 lead at the end of the period.

Despite Christian, Vincent and Williams' persistence at both ends of the court, Defence Force maintained their advantage. Again, Lewis excited the fans with another dunk as the Army team took the first game of the series. The third quarter ended 62-48 for the Defence Force who had a strong fan and army base presence.

For Defence Force, Keyon Joseph had a game high 25pts including three from beyond the arc. While, Lewis added 22pts with four 3pointers. Jamille King added 9pts for the winners.

For Detour Shak Attack, their inspirational leader Christian top-scored with 23pts, Vincent had 12pts and veteran Miguel Williams got 9pts. Game two of the finals will be played on Saturday from 7.30pm at the same venue.

Meanwhile in the other contest, Petro Jazz blew out Trinidad & Tobago Police Service basketball team 104-65 to capture the third place. It was a lackluster contest as a depleted Police team were unable to stop Jazz assault as they were continuously beaten on transition for most possessions.

After a close 1st quarter, which ended 20-19 for Jazz, Police failed to maintain their rhythm. By the second half the score was 46-38 for Jazz. Eventually, the other period ended 73-49 and in the final session Jazz pulled away further by outscoring their opponents 31-16.

Kevin Sargeant had a game high 36pts for the southern-based Petro Jazz, Lazaro Campbell scored 20pts while Delroy Agard added 12pts. For Police, guard Ronell Winter labored all night for 25pts. While, Jesse Hamilton contributed 11pts in a losing effort for fourth position.
