Gibson and Hinds top score in NSC Secondary Schools Basketball

Miguel Gibson and Simon Hinds helped Deighton Griffith to defeat the home team Queen’s College in a thrilling double overtime game 53-48 in the Co-operators General Insurance National Sports Council Junior Basketball Competition.

Playing at Husbands, the half time score saw Queen’s College up 20-16 over Deighton but the competition was tight down the stretch and by the end of regular time the score was 42 all. Both teams were tired but stepped back onto the court for what they thought was the final five minute period. Unfortunately it was not and with the team scoring six points each in overtime, the clock ran out with the score at 48 all and one more period to play. Queen’s College were unable to score in this final session and Deighton came away with the win 53-48. Gibson had the top score over all with 25 points while Hinds had 20. For QC, Dijon Hunte finished with 19 and Godfrey July had 12.
At Waterford, the Lodge School took the away win, taking down Combermere 42-23. With the half time score at 18-16, with Lodge having a slight advantage, a close game was expected. Combermere did not live up to expectations and were only able to muster seven points in the second half and ended up going down big to the visitors. Daryan Jordan had 12 points and Michael Tanis ten for Lodge while Krishna Quintyne finished with 14 for Combermere.
Graydon Sealy defeated Foundation Secondary School at the Church Hill courts 41-32. The halftime score had Graydon Sealy up by 11 and Foundation attempted to claw their way back up by stepping up the intensity. While they played better in the second half of the game and outscored Graydon Sealy 20-18, it was not enough to take the win. Brandon Rock had a big game with 14 points for Graydon Sealy and Reynaldo Simmons contributed ten. Carl Thorpe was the lone standout player for Foundation with ten points. (AS)
