MONTEGO BAY, St James — Defending champions Granville Jaguars will hope to make it three straight wins this evening when thy face Holland Saints in the second game of a National Basketball League-Western Conference double header at the Montego Bay Cricket Club, set to start at 6:15 pm.

Granville Jaguars have scored contrasting wins to start the season, coming from behind to beat Cornwall Courts Chargers in the opening game on Sunday before blowing out former champions Catherine Hall All-Stars on Thursday to sit atop the points table.

In the first game today, Catherine Hall will seek to rebound from that loss and score their second win when they take on Cornwall Courts Chargers starting at 4:15 pm.

Catherine Hall had just six players at their disposal against Jaguars on Thursday, but should be back to full strength today against a Cornwall Courts team that took the challenge to Granville on Sunday, and should they play at the same level today, it could make for an interesting contest.

Both Cornwall Courts and Holland Saints, newcomers to the NBL-Western Conference, will be trying to prove they belong among the top teams.
