MONTEGO BAY, St James — Defending champions Catherine Hall All-Stars will seek to snap a two-game losing skid when they take on Inner-city Avalanche in the first game of a double-header in the third round of the Western Basketball Association iCool/iDrade Elite Basketball League at the Montego Bay Cricket Club today.

Catherine Hall lost to Granville Jaguars 73-85 on Saturday after they were surprised 71-70 by Holland Saints in their previous game and will hope to beat Avalanche for a second time to get back to winning ways.

In their only meeting this season, Catherine Hall beat Avalanche 75-48 in a first-round game.

Also today, Muschett Falcons and Montego Bay Hoopers will meet in the second game set to start at 8:00 pm.

Granville Jaguars maintained their good run on Tuesday to come from a first-quarter deficit to beat MoBay Cricket Club Knights 79-61 at the Cricket Club, while Holland Saints beat Lucea Flames 70-53.

Knights led by five points, 13-8, after the first quarter, but Granville rallied in the second to outscore them by 10 points, 23-13, to lead by five points, 31-26, at the half-time break, then extended the lead to double digits, 54-41, at the end of the third quarter.

Granville's Dave Black led all scorers with 22 points, Leroy Lawrence scored 18 points, Brendan Dawkins scored 10 points, and Huwayne Blake scored nine points and got 14 rebounds.

Mark Wright had a double-double for Knights with 11 points and 18 rebounds, and Andre Morgan also scored 11 points.

Lucea Flames managed just eight points in the first half and despite outscoring Holland Saints by 13 points, 45-32, in the second half, had too much ground to make up.

Aldaine Anderson top scored for Saints with 25 points, Shavaughn Reid scored 16 points and had eight rebounds, and Ricardo Brooks scored 15 points.

Julian Walker led all scorers with 26 points, while Jvon Calderon got 10 and Sheldon Myrie scored four points and had 13 rebounds.
