Laventille into last 4 playoffs
Defending Hoop of Life champions, Laventille United, are into the Big Four finals of the 2013 tournament after whipping Santa Flora 125-52 in game two of their home and away quarter-final series on Thursday night.
They won the series 2-0 to become the first team to make the last four this season.
Laventille led throughout the game on Thursday, with former national junior centre-court player Ashton DuMurrell leading all scorers with 31 points.
Point guard Orlando Mapp scored 25 points which included six three-point baskets, while forward Andy Best chipped in with 18 points that included four three-pointers.
In other games, Caledonia, who finished third in the first edition of the tournament in 2012-2013, are just one win away from booking their place in the Big-Four finals after a hard-fought 78-71 win over St Joseph in the first match of their quarter-final contest at Paradise Heights Basketball Court, Morvant.
The return leg of the encounter was played last night in Mt Hope.
The first leg of the other quarter-final contest between La Horquetta and La Romaine was also scheduled to be played last night at the Lucky Street Basketball Court.
