BENS crowned National Schools under 19 Basketball Champions
SportSt. Benedict’s College beat Colombo International School (81 – 78) in the finals of the National Schools under 19 Basketball Tournament played at the Royal College basketball court, Reid Avenue yesterday. (5th June 2012) Bens dominated the proceedings with their attacking play and maintained a healthy lead to go into half time with 38 points to 32. The lead was further extended (62 – 42) in the 3rd quarter with some aggressive playing, making inroads through the CIS defense. However, the 4th quarter saw CIS making a valiant effort by narrowing the gap to 79 – 71 and the Bens managed to hold on to a three point lead at the final whistle.

In the first semi finals, Benedictines were able to tame the Royalists in their own den, while CIS beat D.S. Senanayake MV in the other semi finals. Royal College had the consolation of winning the 3rd place play-off beating D.S. Senanayake MV just prior to the finals.
