Knights notch four straight wins in Western Basketball
MONTEGO BAY, St James — Montego Bay Cricket Club Knights, last season's beaten finalists, ran their record to four straight wins on Thursday after snapping Inner-City Avalanche's two-game win streak with a 76-33 win in the Hi-lyte/Insport Western Basketball Association's Men's Basketball Championships at Montego Bay Cricket Club.
Omroy Kerr scored 16 points to lead Knights to an easy win as Avalanche failed to make it three straight as they were held to below double digit points in the final three quarters.
Today, Avalanche will hope to get back to winning ways when they travel to Whithorn to face Sav J-Hawks, while the winless Montego Bay Boys Club Warriors and Cornwall Courts Chargers will meet at Montego Bay Boys Club.
On Thursday, Knights got off to a good start, leading by nine points, 25-16, after the first quarter and increased it to a 22-point margin, 42-20, at half-time and continued to increase the margin as the game went on.
Lemar Mitchell also scored 11 points and Andre Turner eight for Knights, while Andy Simpson scored 10 points to lead Avalanche.
Two more games will be played tomorrow: Muschett Cardinals against William Knibb Thunder and Rocky Bar Ballers against Trelawny Tornadoes, both at Muschett.
