SEYCHELLES : Seychelles Basketball Federation (SBF) Cup - Baya, PLS Hawks reach men’s semis

In the men’s competition, Baya and PLS Hawks progressed to the semifinal on Saturday at the Palais des Sports, while Premium Cobras won their rescheduled match against Pointe Larue Falcons on the same day to make it to the quarterfinals.

Playing without centre Lenny ‘Bad’ Aglaé and forward James Beier, Men’s division 1A champions Premium Cobras showed Men’s division 1B winners Pointe Larue that life in the top flight won’t be easy, winning 118-51.
Tanzanian Abdallah ‘Dulla’ Ramadhan led Premium Cobras in scoring with 36 points, with Dominic Pillay (15 points), Brian Morel (14 points), Danny Bertin (14 points) and Christopher Camille (12 points) being the other cobras in double digits.
Skipper Kenneth Sinon (22 points) and Conrad Gabriel (14 points) were the top scoring falcons.
It is to note that the match was originally scheduled for Thursday November 16 but after heavy rains flooded the Victoria Gymnasium court, the referees decided to call it a day.
Premium Cobras play RC Dynamics tomorrow for a place in the semifinal against Baya, 105-63 winners against Cascade Bullets in Saturday’s quarterfinal.
With just six players, Baya reached the century mark for the second consecutive game after eliminating Ex-Champs on a 120-51 score in the previous round.

In the 105-63 defeat of Cascade Bullets, coach Michel Malbrook had five players scoring in double figures – Dave Roseline (24 points including three 3-pointers), skipper-of-the-day Michael Cupidon (24 points), Robert Léon (17 points), Bernard Cherry (15 points) and Giovanni Laval (13 points).

Baya won all four quarters 17-13, 29-13, 24-11 and 35-25.
Sandy Julienne netted 17 points, playmaker Kenneth Sophie 16 and centre Biko Biong 10 to lead the Bullets.
Still without a cup this year, PLS Hawks laboured into the semifinals by virtue of a 69-65 win against SMB Razorbacks.
After losing the first quarter 16-18, coach Tony Juliette’s PLS Hawks won the other three 19-16, 16-15 and 18-16.
Ugandan Stephen Omony, who netted a season-high 45 points against Bel Air Blazers in the 123-35 previous round victory, again led PLS Hawks in scoring with 31 points, including two treys.
Former hawk Jean-Paul Camille had the hot hands for SMB Razorbacks with 19 points.
Missing playmaker Thomas Collie with an injured finger and Rodney Lozé, PLS Hawks are to meet the winners of Sunday’s (November 19) match between MBU Rockers and Angels.
