LPB 2007 Finals - Game 7: Guaiqueries de Margarita, new champions of Venezuela
Guaiqueries de Margarita earned their eighth national title, by defeating Cocodrilos de Caracas 92-87 in Game 7 of Liga Profesional de Baloncesto 2007's Finals, played at Naciones Unidas Park of Caracas and in which Chris Jackson (208-C-81) scored 28 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to get the Most Valuable Player of the Finals award.
The title levels Guaiqueries with Trotamundos de Carabobo as the franchises with the most national titles in pro basketball. The green side won the first quarter 22-20, and lost the second one 21-19, to reach the first half with a tie of 41-41. However, they got back in control in the third with a 24-17 run (65-58) and kept their domain despites loosing the final 10 minutes by a tight 29-27.
Cocodrilos tried to react in the final two minutes with a three-pointer by Henry Paez (184-G-70) and another one courtesy of Kevin Freeman (201-F-78) that gave them a brief lead (82-81), but another long distance shot netted by dominican Kelvin Pena (193-G-81) and two free-throws scored by Francisco Sanabria (190-G-77) silenced the crowd. Then another couple of free-throws by Jackson ended things up.
"I thanks God, my wife, my daughter and Guaiqueries for this. I did everything I could to help this team, but this award I owe it to my teammates, who've always supported me", said Jackson, visibly excited after the match.
Kelvin Pena scored 19 points and grabbed six rebounds and Alex Quiroz (185-G-75), the only player still standing from the team's last title, back in 1997, supported him with 14 points and three assists. Meanwhile, Rogers Washington (202-F-77) scored 13 points and took eight rebounds.
"Before I came to Venezuela, I had the intuition that something good was going to happen. This final series has been one of the toughest because I had ups and downs the whole year. Sometimes is tough to face bad moments, but its this kind of moments that prepare you to taste the sweetness of the victory. I'm proud of my players, they were had workers and for us it was very positive that we were never considered as a favorite team for the championship", said head coach Julio Toro , who also won the title in 1997 and one another one with Trotamundos de Carabobo back in 1994.
Last time Guaiqueries had won the title was against Cocodrilos in 1997. For the loosing squad, Kevin Freeman scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds, Victor David Diaz (195-F-68) added 19 points, Luis Bethelmi (200-C-86) followed them with 15 points and Tim Jones (193-G/F-73) finished up with 14 points.
"Though we didn't achieved our objective, it was a great season for us", said head coach Nestor Salazar . "The group always did things as they were asked to. We should've had more patience in the last quarter".
