SEYCHELLES : National League - Agathine scorches Cadettes with season-high 63 points
ONE of the country’s finest young female basketball talents, Sherifah Agathine, scorched Cadettes on Saturday in a women’s league match.
The Anse Boileau secondary five student scored a game-high and season-leading 63 points to help defending champions HotShots to a 157-13 win over inexperienced and youthful side Cadettes on Saturday at Victoria Gymnasium.
A member of the country’s team at the Jeux de la Commission de la Jeunesse et des Sports de l’Océan Indien (CJSOI) in 2008, Agathine said she was satisfied with her performance in Saturday’s game.
“I am very satisfied with how I performed and I look forward to doing even better in the future,” said Agathine, who promises to become a good player if she stays focused on what she has to do to improve her game.
The Fontaine sisters – Beguitta (28) and Zera (23) – combined for 51 points and centre Tina Agathine added 19 in the lopsided win as coach Philip Arissol had very little to do from the sidelines.
Former men’s champions Baya reached the century mark against RC Dynamics as they warmed up for this coming weekend’s match against leaders Premium Cobras.
Coach Michel Malbrook’s team won all four quarters, 20-17, 22-16, 38-18 and 24-21, in a landslide 104-71 victory.
Baya had five players – captain-of-the-day Hendricks Denis (18), centre Robert Léon (16), small forward Dave Roseline, reserve centre Tony ‘General’ Barbé (11) and playmaker Giovanni Laval (10) – scoring in double figures.
Veteran Emmanuel Jupiter, who fouled out along with Isaah Rose and Kenneth Domingue, carried the scoring load for coach Jim Domingue’s RC Dynamics with 19 points.
Captain Nigel Sinon led by example with a game-leading 20 points in MBU Rockers’ 19-point margin –80-61 – victory over Cascade Bullets.
Under the leadership of coach Alvin Alcindor, the Rockers also got 13 points from Brian Morel and 12 from both swingman Cyril Agrippine and dreadlocked Nigel ‘Jah’ Henriette.
They won three of the four quarters, 23-13, 23-16 and 22-20, while the Bullets dominated only the second on a 12-10 score.
Sharpshooter Dan Côme had the hot hands for the Bullets with 20 points and Tony Alcindor made a 14-point contribution.
