MBU Rockers outscored Baya 10-3 in overtime (OT) and downed coach Michel Malbrooks team with an 87-80 victory in the second mens semifinal of the Curtain-raiser tournament.

Finishing with 21 points, Pascal Bibi sealed the deal for the Rockers who will be making a second consecutive final appearance against PLS Hawks after losing last years Seychelles Basketball Federation (SBF) Cup final to the same Hawks team on a 61-111 score.
Bibi led three other rockers in double digits Daniel Hoareau (15 points), Brian Morel (G) (15) and playmaker Nigel Sinon (12).
The Rockers got off to a good start in Wednesdays game at the Victoria Gymnasium. They kept up the scoring in the first period to head into the second quarter with an eight-point advantage (20-12). But Baya won the second quarter 22-12 to go for the breather with a slim two-point margin 34-32.
The third quarter had a similar pattern as the first as the Rockers outscored Baya 21-14 to bring the score to 53-48 and they carried a five-point lead into the fourth.
But Baya were not to go down without a fight. They came down hard on the Rockers in the fourth quarter which they won 29-24 and the game ended on a tie 77-77 needing overtime to decide the winners.
In OT, the Rockers outpaced Baya 10-3 to run out 87-80 winners.
Dave Roseline carried Bayas scoring load with 31 points and he was helped in offence by Timmy Adam with 11.

PLS Hawks qualified for the final earlier in the week with an 89-76 win against Premium Cobras. Nigerian Alao Solomon scored a game-high 35 points for the Hawks in the semifinal win against Premium Cobras whom they also beat 83-60 in last years Curtain-raiser final.

Dawgz keep title charge, Stars title defence in tatters - 3 Years ago
Mont Fleuri Dawgz kept their hopes of a first ever league title alive as they won their ninth game of the season, while Anse Etoile Stars suffered another defeat, making their title defence all the more difficult. Mont Fleuri Dawgz was victorious over RC Dynamics, a side that has yet to record a win this season. A win against a much improved Dawgz side was always going to be a tough task and the boys from Mont Fleuri showed their superiority as early as the first quarter where they scored...   [read more]
