The division one finals of the Antigua & Barbuda Basketball Association has been set as F&G Trading Cuties Ovals Ojays and L J North-Side Stingerz face off in a best of five finals starting on Sunday April 24, 2016 8pm at JSC. Never before has their been so much on the line for both teams.
Defending champions F&G Trading Cuties Ovals Ojays will look to cement themselves in the history books along with the greats as they fight to clench the double for the second consecutive year. Captain Bryan ‘Hollywood’ Matthew will lead the charge with assistance from the dynamic dunker, Kareem ‘Macky’ Edwards, the skipper, Marlon ‘Buju’ Charles and the sharp shooter Derricion Anthony.
Being the oldest team in the league, the Ovals men did not let the odds deter them and now are just one step away from the title. While their opponents LJ North-Side Stingerz have a different story to be written in the history books as they hope to claim the title in their first year in division one. Being the rookie team the men in green battled their way into the finals and gained much deserved respect and love from the basketball fraternity. The Davis brothers will lead the troops into battle with high flyer Coy Quinland, the Cuban Giant Abraham Cruz and sniper Chaz Samuel helping along the way.
Both teams with so much on the line but so much to gain will leave it all out on the court as they go for the glory.
