Shaad O’Garro scored a game-high 22 points and Samuel O’Garro added 21 more as the SOL Blazers beat the Lions 75-70 Wednesday (8 June) to take a 1-0 lead in the Cayman Islands Basketball Association Men’s League Division 1 finals.
Shaad O’Garro added 10 rebounds for the double-double in this rematch of last year’s finals.
The Blazers led by nine in the second quarter when a fight broke out after Lions forward Jerome Narcisse was fouled driving to the hole. Four players were ejected after the incident, which caused the game to be delayed for roughly 20 minutes.
In the Division 2 game, Asian Retail topped Celltronics, 64-58.
Game two for both divisions is slated for Sunday (12 June) at Clifton Hunter High School.
