Blazing their way back

Division two basketball is back in action this week.

Yesterday saw a pair of games in division two of the Domino’s Pizza Men’s Basketball League.

The Cayman Islands Basketball Association Court off Eastern Avenue saw Future Sports Club take on Ritz Carlton Lions before Esso Blazers B battled Digicel Broadband.

The games all boasted a fair share of local talent. Future had hoop stars Michael Blackburn and Jarrett Terry along with local racer Terry Ballard.

Esso meanwhile boasts local hoops prodigies Brandon Glasgow and Daryl Paddyfoot along with local sports brothers Albert and Rupert Whittaker.

The games are the first in the division after a two week break for Easter.

Heading into this week the Blazers were undefeated and on top of the division. A big part of their success has been their offense which has scored the most points with 209.

Last year’s runner-up Digicel are second as they too are undefeated. Lead by the star duo of Michael Burbidge and Gavin McMasters the side has done well defensively, allowing the fewest points (81) thus far.

Newcomers Rockhole Fyah Ants are third lead by stand-out player Cruze Solomon and its collection of interesting role players including artist Gordon Solomon and TV reporter Kenneth Bryan.

Behind them are the Ritz Carlton Lions who have yet to notch a win in spite of allowing the second fewest points with 136.

Shockingly the last place team at present is Future Sports Club. Even with their wealth of youth and up and coming hoopsters the side has struggled offensively, scoring the fewest points with 108.

Division two plays two games every Monday from 6:15pm at the CIBA Court.
