Rain pushes Maloney, La Romaine clash to today
Game one of the best-of-three Hoop of Life Community Basketball League final between Maloney and La Romaine was rescheduled to today after rain kept the players off the court, in Maloney, on Saturday night.
Jump-ball is 7.30 p.m., with the teams clashing for a first prize of $1.5 million.
Game two will now take place on Wednesday night in La Romaine. If a third game is needed it will be played on Friday in Maloney.
Maloney have a good shot at taking the top prize after defeating 2012 champions Laventille in the semi-finals. Centre Shawn Lawrence has been leading their charge, averaging 17 points per game, while Kevin Bacquain and forwards Kenyatta Alfred and Chris Nelson have all been in good form.
Meanwhile, La Romaine, who finished fourth last season after losing to Caledonia, will put on show the talented and high-scoring point guard Derrick Boxill, who is averaging 27 points per game, and Adrian Joseph, who is averaging 19 points per game.
They will be backed up by talented under-21 standout, Lester Edwards.
La Romaine defeated Caledonia to reach the final.
