Combermere’s woes in junior basketball continued yesterday evening when they travelled to Black Rock, St. Michael and were beaten 59-35 by Ellerslie, as action in the Co-operators General Insurance Company Limited-sponsored Under-16 Secondary Schools Basketball Tournament continued.
The Waterford, St. Michael school has virtually been a one-man offensive unit but in a team sport Christopher Collymore cannot win games on his own. The talented Collymore who has impressed with every outing, had a game-high 23 points but got minimal offensive assistance from his team-mates. No other player got into double figures.
On the other hand Ellerslie had contributions from a number of players both on the offensive and defensive end. Their defensive efforts kept Combermere down to a mere 15 first-half points and then Combermere did marginally better than that in the second half.
Ellerslie led 27-15 at the break.
