OMEGA XL Deacons men are the double-crown Goddard Enterprises Limited Division One kings, while UWI Blackbirds are first-time league queens.

When the action restarted at the Wildey Gymnasium on Tuesday night, Deacons beat All Stars 25-22, 25-23, 22-25, 25-7 to move to an unassailable 42 points in the league with a game in hand.
Deposed kings Barbados Bearings/W. Gittens Landscaping/Crumbz Bakery can only finish on 41 points, even if they surprisingly defeat Deacons in straight sets in their final game. (KB)
