Freetown Travelers bid their farewell to the 1st Division of the Antigua and Barbuda Basketball Association League on Saturday night after falling to Yorks Crushers, 68-64 at the JSC Sports Complex.
Travelers who ended their campaign on a 3-13 record needed just one win to remain in the first division to bump out Ottos Full Throttle who sat in the 8th spot, but it would not become a reality.
The country team that actually remained in the top flight for over 10 years could not secure a spot in next season’s line-up despite a 23- point effort by former national players, Morlon “Little” Davis and Teon Joseph.
Davis had 23 points and seven rebounds while Joseph assisted with 16 points and five assists.
Teammate, Tommy Joseph also chipped in netting 10 points and grabbing seven rebounds in a losing effort.
Crushers’ DeSouza led the charge with 15 points, 11 rebounds, five steals and four blocked shots with assistance from Kebo Orford who also scored 15 points with 13 rebounds.
Veteran, Nigel “Snarks” Joseph, chipped in with 12 points while teammate, Dandris Connell, contributed with 10 points and four steals.
Travelers join Global Hawks in demotion after Hawks dropped out of the top flight in the first round.
Newbies, Potters Steelers ended their regular season campaign on a high note as they defeated HomeTech Systems Outlaws, 91-82.
CBA player, Joshua Minner, led the Steelers to victory, sinking 29 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. He was assisted by Felix Hamilton who had 28 points and eight assists and Benny Iko (CBA player) who chipped in with 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots.
Jason London had a game high 31 points and seven rebounds for Outlaws.
He was assisted by Kevin “Pumpkin” Roberts who had 27 points and eight rebounds and Andrew “Puss” Venture who sank 10 points, snatched five rebounds and made seven assists.
All eyes will now go to the playoffs which shoot off later this week.
