Dominos fight like real Warriors

The
Wolves are working hard and keeping pace atop the pack in local basketball.
These days’ games carry extra weight because the Dominos Warriors are right on
their tails.

Both
clubs are in action on Thursday, 10 June, at the Arts and Recreation Centre at
Camana Bay. At 6.30pm the Wolves battle a Colombia team that has yet to win
this season before the Warriors face the third place Bulls at 8.15pm.

Coming
into Week 10 of the 14-week regular season Dominos sits second at 8-1 in
Division 1 of the Cayman Islands Basketball Association national men’s league.
Their only loss of the season came to the 8-1 Wolves in April and since then
the Warriors have been fearsome.

Its
latest triumph was a 84-63 win over team Philippines. Four players were in
double figures with Collin Anglin posting 30 points, six rebounds, five assists
and five steals. Chris Lucas had a solid 20 points and three rebounds, Antonio
Thompson had 13 points and seven rebounds and Sefu Bernard had 10 points and
nine rebounds.

Philippines
put up a good fight as Christian Ferrer had 11 points and six rebounds, Ding
Briones had 10 points and seven rebounds, Eric Morata had 10 points and five
rebounds and Marc Jocson had 10 points and three rebounds. With the loss
Philippines fall to sixth in the league at 3-6.

Dominos’
opponents the Bulls also had a strong showing last Thursday thanks to a 96-54
win over Colombia. Curtis Wilson continues to be an impact player with 22
points, 21 rebounds and six assists. He had help from Kael Leslie (20 points,
seven assists, six rebounds), athletic big man Chad Leslie (18 points, 16
rebounds and two steals) and young prodigy Stephen Shaw (15 points and six
rebounds). Special mention goes to Jay Welcome, who may not have dazzled with
stats (six points, two rebounds) but was impressive with his hustle and
fearless drives to the basket.

The
only bright spots for Colombia were Norvelio Howard (22 points and 14 rebounds)
and Jose Navas (10 points and three steals). Against the Wolves the side could
use more production from Dexter Martinez (three points and no rebounds) and
Eric Smith (nine points and one assist).
