Barbados Community College managed a close 42-38 victory over Queen’s College as the 2014 Massy United Insurance Secondary Schools Basketball Competition continued today.
Playing at their BCC home auditorium, the lads from Howells Cross Road found worthy opponents in Queen’s College and could only manage a one-point advantage by the end of the first quarter, 10-9. BCC dominated the second quarter which ended at 20-12 with forward Jarad Grant, who top scored with 14 points, leading their offensive efforts.
However, Queen’s College stepped up their intensity on both ends of the court, especially on the defensive end and slowed BCC down considerably as the third quarter ended at 33-32 in BCC’s favour.
In the final quarter, both teams came out with lots of aggression but BCC were better organised in defence while the Husbands, St James boys found themselves in foul trouble which BCC were only too keen to take advantage of as they held on for the win.
