Home court advantage should always count for something. And Queen’s College demonstrated just that as they ran rings around The Alleyne School at Husband’s, St. James today defeating them 69-20 as action continued in the Co-operators General Insurance-sponsored Under-16 Secondary Schools Basketball Tournament.
Queen’s College led throughout on the strength of swarming defence and better offensive organisation than their opponents. They also benefited from several fast-break points.
The Alleyne School were guilty of forcing shots, not getting back on defence and turning over the ball too often. Guard Dillon Hoyte had plenty of difficulty finding team-mates in good offensive position and was frequently stripped of the ball.
Competition continues tomorrow with Frederick Smith against Lester Vaughan at Frederick Smith and Foundation versus Harrison College at Foundation.
