Report From Malta Basketball Association Facebook

Athleta 69 v. Depiro 62

Athleta raced ahead to a 20 point lead early on through great ball movement, with great perimeter shooting from Omar Said, and David Bugeja penetrating for profit. The introduction from the bench of Kristen Baldacchino gave a further push for Athleta. Depiros Shawn Morgan started the game looking to get his teammates involved in the offense. Athleta carried a very healthy lead going into the second half, and seemed a step ahead.

In the third quarter, Depiro clawed their way back into contention with a tremendous rally, cutting the deficit to a single digit half way through the session. Morgan looked to scored more directly. While he was responsible for some nifty passes, he was unquestionably Depiros major threat as they cut the deficit to a single possession going into the final quarter.

Athleta, however, stymied Depiros progress early in the session and were able to go back to the formula that got them their earlier cushion. In a very cagey quarter of basketball, Athletas patience and discipline on both ends of the ball paid off, and they held off Depiro for a good win.

Athleta was led Marco Todorovic with 22pts, 12rebs, 2ast

Depiro was led by Shawn Morgan 24pts, 8rebs, 2ast, 3stls




Siggiewi 80 v. Floriana Francesco 67

Both team seemed evenly matched at the outset, with Marko Matijevic and Philip Thomas poised for a low-post skirmish from the opening tip. As the first quarter progressed, Floriana took a small lead with some fine spot shooting and physical defense, and Thomas getting an early edge inside. In the second quarter, however, Siggiewi got back into it with some clinical shooting and efficient break play. The two teams exchanged leads several times halfway through the quarter, as Floriana relied on Thomas for their scoring. They struggled to hold back a resurgent Siggiewi squad that relied on a balanced offense to keep up with Thomas flurry, and then ran their way to some easy scores for a six-point halftime lead. [HT 37-43]

Siggiewi built on their momentum and extended their lead throughout the 3rd quarter, with superior team work all round and crisp passing on offense. Peter Shoults was responsible for some fine basketball on both ends of the court, making plays both on hustle and smarts, and helped give Siggiewis backcourt the edge over their Floriana
counterparts.

As the game progressed, Matijevic turned the tables on Thomas and seemed to figure him out somewhat. Floriana were unable to get any rhythm going, and while they made a small run with Dirk Schembri showing some genuine flashes, Siggiewi never looked like relinquishing the lead in the fourth, and were able to keep Floriana at arms length
until games end.


Siggiewi was led by Marco Matijevic 26pts, 12rebs, 2ast, 3stls,2blks

Floriana was led by Phillip Thomas 27pts, 10rebs, 2ast
