Earlier this month, the Honiara Basketball Association Super 4 teams played the semifinals. It really was an exhibition of the best Honiara has to offer. The finals will be played at the Multi Purpose Hall.
QQQ - CYO: 65-34
The first mens semi final of the day was between CYO and QQQ Marist. Despite a close first quarter, QQQ Marist broke away in the 2nd quarter thanks to some excellent team defence and amazing 3pt shooting from Eddie. CYO picked up the tempo by changing to a man to man defence, however the damage had been done and QQQ Marist ran out winners. QQQ Marist supporter Gerad Kelly was estatic with the result "I can't believe it, that is the best game I have seen them play, and I can't wait to see them play in the final on Sunday" said Gerry after the final siren.
QQQ Marist: Allen 19pts, Goldie 18pts, Eddie 16pts.
CYO: Juniour 8pts, Marka 6pts.
Telekom - Sossa: 76-41
The last match of the day was between LR Sossa men and Telekom men. In a similar tale to the first mens semi final, the match was close early but Telekom pulled away in the 2nd quarter thanks to some sharp shooting. Telekom then managed to keep this lead until the end of the match and cement themselves a place in the final this coming Sunday.
Telekom: Sammy 19pts, Bryce 17pts, Walton 12pts, Willie 11pts.
LR Sossa: Leon 16pts, Tigs 9pts, Billy 7pts.
