Harrison College’s Mykela Thorpe (with ball) is closely marked by Graydon Sealy’s Shonica Wharton.

Superior fitness coupled with the ability to control the tempo of the game at will was the instrumental factor that propelled Graydon Sealy to a comfortable 46-35 semi-final victory over Harrison’s College in the Wibisco-sponsored Secondary Schools Girls Basketball Competition at the Barbados Community College courts today.

The Graydon Sealy ballers controlled the momentum of the game from the starting whistle, with a fast and furious pace in the first quarter then doing just enough in the second quarter to keep the scoreboard ticking to finish with a half time lead of 22-15.

However in the second half Graydon Sealy literally ran their winded opponents into the ground, who, by this time, seemed to lack the necessary concentration and creativity to find a route from the top of key to the basket.

Graydon Sealy’s Nikita President had a fantastic match. Not only did she top the scoring stats with 24 points, but she was also the main orchestrator of their offensive plays. She was ably assisted by Shonica Wharton who scored eight points, and both were powerhouses on defence.

It was also a good outing for Shannon Greene of Harrison College, who registered 22 of her team’s 35 points. With a bit more offensive help from her team-mates the result could perhaps have been different.

In the second semi-final, Springer Memorial led by Winmalicia Bowen’s 21 points, defeated Combermere 72-49. Makela Walcott scored 24 points for Combermere.
