Bulls still searching for a win
THE GOING continues to get tough for Clapham.
Four games in and the Bulls are still yet to get off the mark, as Sharece Shepherd and Maria Cumberbatch both scored 20 points in Station Hill Cavaliers’ 87-43 rout of Clapham in Tuesday’s women’s basketball action at the Wildey Gymnasium.
Seasoned forward/centre Wanda Agard-Belgrave added a triple-double of 13 points, 12 rebounds and ten rebounds to go with seven steals, while Astrid Alleyne had 12 points and ten boards in the Cavs’ wire-to-wire victory.
The result moved the defending league champs to a 3-1 record, just one game behind undefeated rivals UWI Blackbirds (4-0).
Irecka Louis led the winless Bulls (0-4) with 14 points and Tricia Gill had ten points and ten rebounds.
Earlier, Toni Atherley and Jennifer Joseph-Hackett each had big double-doubles to keep the league-leading UWI Blackbirds unbeaten via a 62-42 blowout of Combined Schools Hoopsters.
Atherley led the way with 24 points and 17 rebounds, while Joseph-Hackett added 21 and 17 as UWI held the schoolgirls to just seven third-quarter points to blow the contest wide open.
Makela Walcott and Ashlee Daniel finished in double digits for Hoopsters (2-2) after scoring 21 and 13 points, respectively.
