MONTEGO BAY, St James — Defending champions Herbert Morrison Technical and former winners Cornwall College will meet today at the Montego Bay Cricket Club in the final of the ISSA Western Conference Under-14 boys' basketball competition.

They qualified for the final after convincing wins in last Wednesday's semi-finals at the same venue. Herbert Morrison steamrolled Muschett High 60-17 after Cornwall College had beaten Holland High 39-24 the Trelawny school experiencing their first loss of the season after they won all six games in the first round.

The finalists have also qualified for the all-island play-offs set for later this month.

Holland High and Muschett High will meet in the third-place consolation game starting at 2:30 pm before the final.

Herbert Morrison will start favourites after beating Cornwall College twice in their first round, including a 38-25 win in a rescheduled game played at Cornwall three weeks ago.

The Dave Black-coached Herbert Morrison, who are seeking to sweep all three boys' titles for a second-straight year after winning the Under-16 and Under-19 titles earlier in the season, lost once in the season, going down to St James High in the upset of the season that was also the winners' only win of the season.

In their win over the previously unbeaten Holland High last Wednesday, Cornwall showed they will not be pushovers and dominated the Holland High team for long periods, but they must contain Kyle Fraser, who played on the Under-16 team as well as Dalmar Clarke, today.
