MONTEGO BAY, St James — Former champions Granville Jaguars and Catherine Hall All-Stars will be going after back-to-back wins today while Lucea Flames and Holland Saints will be making delayed debuts, as the Western Basketball Association Elite Basketball League continues with a triple header today at Montego Bay Cricket Club, weather permitting.

Granville Jaguars are set to meet Cornwall Courts Chargers in the first game set to start at 4:15 pm, followed by Lucea Flames taking on Catherine Hall All-Stars and Inner-City Avalanche and Holland Saints meeting in the third game of the day.

Lucea Flames and Holland Saints were set to meet on Thursday, but heavy afternoon rains washed out the game, forcing a postponement. They will hope the rains that have affected parts of western Jamaica all week will stay away.

Lawrence scored 20 points and had 15 rebounds and Vassell scored 17 points and got 13 rebounds. Dave Black scored 25 points and Levar Rose scored 12 points for Granville, who scored 72 points in the second half alone.

Troy Reid scored a game-high 28 points for Sav Elite Titans, as Chescardo Grant scored 17 points.

Catherine Hall got off to a fast start, leading Cornwall Courts 22-10 after the first quarter and were up 37-29 at half-time, as five of the six players who suited up scored in double digits.

Kurt Dorman scored 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Mikhail Smith scored 13 points and had 12 rebounds, and Jermaine Rerrie scored 10 points and had 15 rebounds, while Goyan Malcolm scored 16 points and Dwayne Johns added 10 points for All-Stars.

Franz McLennon with 21 points and Giovanni Bailey with 20 points combined for 41 of Cornwall Courts' 62 points.
