MONTEGO BAY, St James — Former champions Granville Jaguars could close the gap on leaders and defending champions Catherine Hall All-Stars today when they take on MoBay Hoopers in a rescheduled, second-round game in the Western Basketball Association iCool/iDrade Elite Basketball League at the Montego Bay Cricket Club, set to start at 6:15 pm.

In the second game of the double-header, Muschett Falcons and Inner-city Avalanche meet as they seek to snap losing skids and claw their way from the foot of the table.

Granville, who are coming off an easy 94-70 beating of Muschett Falcons on Saturday, are in second place on 34 points from 18 games played, four points and two games less than Catherine Hall.

Hoopers, meanwhile, are still in the race for a semi-final place and are in fourth place on 27 points from 19 games. An upset win today would all but seal their place in the top four.

Hoopers have lost both games against Granville Jaguars so far this season, giving up over 70 points on both occasions, but will face a team that is fine-tuning for the play-offs.

National representative Dave Black scored 35 points in Granville's win over Muschett on Saturday, and could once again lead the attack today.
