MARK ONE for Lumber Company Lakers in Premier League basketball’s next best rivalry after Andre Lockhart went for a game-high 28 points and eight assists in Sunday’s 86-74 statement win over pre-season favourites Urban Vybz St John’s Sonics at the Wildey Gym.
It was the type of brilliant individual performance most fitting for a marquee matchup that took on even greater hype with Sonics’ much-talked about acquisitions of Ramon Simmons and Rahiim Gibbons.
But it was Lakers’ star who spoke loudest, making his own big statement by scoring at will off a series of dribble drives, pull-up and spot-up jumpers and one incredible floater while being fouled falling away from the basket.
And the buckets he didn’t score personally, Lockhart still had a hand in by creating them for others, including Jamar King’s two fastbreak layups and a spot-up trey during the game’s decisive 12-4 fourth-quarter run.
