Sealy still


Share post:

BASKETBALL’s next best rivalry? Graydon Sealy owns it now. That, and another Division 2 title.

Not even a 15-point deficit was enough to dethrone the champs, as Graydon Sealy survived the first-half hole, and Jehu Lafueille’s big game before beating Ellerslie 81-66 in yesterday’s final of the Massy United Insurance basketball Competition at the Wildey Gym.

The championship was the second in a row for the perennial powerhouses, who weren’t necessarily assured of another title after splitting a close regular season series with their Black Rock rivals.

And the victory was in further doubt still, especially following a first-quarter performance that saw Ellerslie take a shocking 26-11 lead behind unlikely jumpers from role players Nicholas Hoyte and Akeem Brathwaite.
