KENYA : St Austin's Maintain Winning Form at RVA Invitational Tournament


Nairobi 's St Austin's Academy maintained their winning form this year with a convincing 59-50 win over hosts Rift Valley Academy-RVA Buffaloes to clinch the 2007 RVA Invitational tournament title. RVA point guard Richard Ndembe rallied his team to an early 14-06 lead inside 4 minutes of play, after sinking back-to-back baskets. St Austin's recovered through Kevin Samora, Gilbert Muhoro and Antoine Chidi to close in within a point: 17-18 with 5:25 to the break, before finally tying the game at 20-20 after Antoine Chidi sunk his free-throws as time ran out.

The second half started on a high note with Samora hitting a jumper inside 12 seconds of play to give Austin 's their first lead of the game 22-20. However, their lead was short-lived as Richard Ndembe replied at the other end, to give RVA a 23-22 advantage. The game then turned into a see-saw as both teams trading baskets at both ends with Samora, Chidi and David Ogola leading the Austin 's attack, while Ndembe, Ethan and Aaron.W kept the hosts afloat. Samora then combined with Chidi to give Austin's a narrow 31-30 lead with 12 minutes to go, as RVA Coach Wally Coots called for a timeout. Both teams came all fired after the timeout, traded shots at will, RVA hitting three 3-pointers for a 46-45 score line with 2:16 remaining. St Austin's stepped up their game through Ogola, Samora, Chidi and Kivoto, taking a 10-point lead (58-48) with 40 seconds remaining. David Ogola shot 13 points, Kevin Samora 12 and Antoine Chidi 10 for St Austin's, while Richard Ndembe had a game high 20 points for RVA with Aaron .M adding 10.

St Austin's hit Nairobi Jaffery's Academy 37-26 in the semi finals after leading 11-08 at halftime in the explosive tie that saw David Sinda bag 11 points for Jaffery's, while RVA defeated St Mary's School Nairobi 38-15 in the other semi.
