THE FINALS didn’t get another of those all-time great performances from Andre Lockhart.
But Premier League basketball’s most coveted prize is Husbands-bound once more.
Lumber Company Lakers captured the title with a decisive 15-0 fourth quarter that sealed Saturday’s series-clinching 70-69 win over Smalta Pinelands at the Barbados Community College.
It was the fitting finish to a telling three-game series sweep, and another deep postseason Lakers run – a hallmark of excellence that has seen the side capture a fourth league title in seven years while making their seventh finals appearance since 2006.
And this time it came without an epic individual effort by Lockhart, who had successive scores over 30 points in the series but was restricted to just 15 while battling foul trouble.
