MONTEGO BAY, St James — Leaders Catherine Hall All-stars will take on unbeaten Cricket Club Knights in the first game of today's first-round Western Basketball Association Elite Basketball League triple header at Montego Bay Cricket Club, set to start at 4:15 pm.

Catherine Hall All-stars took over the league on Thursday after beating Inner city Avalanche 61-49. The All-stars are on nine points, one more than the Knights and defending champions Granville Jaguars, who are both perfect after four games.

Granville Jaguars will also be seeking a fifth win today when they face Holland Saints in the third game, after Sav-Elite Titans and Lucea Flames meet in the second game set for 6:00 pm.

On Thursday, Michael Schloss' game-high 18 pints and Odane Whittaker's double-double led Catherine Hall to an eventually comfortable win over Avalanche, who had scored their first win last weekend.

Catherine Hall led 16-9 after the first quarter, but Avalanche rallied to tie up the scores at 29-all at half-time. Avalanche managed only five points in the third quarter and trailed 34-50 going into the fourth quarter.

Whittaker had 17 points and 19 rebounds for Catherine Hall, Schloss scored 18 points to lead all scorers, and Mikhail Smith and Goyan Malcolm each scored 10 points as Jermaine Rerrie grabbed 14 rebounds.

Dovial Smith scored 16 points for Avalanche and grabbed nine rebounds, Shaqueal Benti scored 10 points, while Damian Smith got 11 rebounds.

On Tuesday Lucea Flames scored their first win of the season, beating Cornwall Courts Chargers 78-66. The Flames were rebounding from a big loss to Granville on Saturday, with Julian Walker and Jvon Calderon both getting double-doubles.

Walker scored a game-high 26 points and got 11 rebounds while Calderon, who played limited minutes against Jaguars after showing up late then suffering an elbow to his mouth, rebounded with 12 points and 20 rebounds while Sheldon Myrie scored 17 points.

Detroy Jewery led Chargers with 18 points and 10 rebounds as well as eight steals, Giovanni Bailey scored 17 points, Franz Clennon scored 11, while Romario Doyley scored 10 points.
