The Cybots’ organization now have a government league title to go with their New Providence Basketball Association (NPBA) title and their Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF) national title. In addition to that, their women won the Bahamas Government Departmental Women’s Basketball Association (BGDWBA) title this year.
It would be the Tronicquest Cybots who would celebrate the title on Saturday night though.
After blowing Game Three, the Cybots came back to take Game Four convincingly, 102-79, finishing off the Police Royals three games to one, to win the Bahamas Government Departmental Basketball Association (BGDBA) title. Head Coach Wayde Watson said that they were disappointed after
blowing Game Three on Friday night, so they came out focussed to take Game Four, on Saturday.
“It feels good,” said Watson. “We packed it in on defense, and forced them shoot jump shots. We knew that they couldn’t beat us from the outside. We were disappointed after losing on Friday, but we knew that it was going to be tough for them to beat us three straight times, so we just maintained our composure and came out and did what we needed to do. Hopefully, we could keep this team together. We worked hard for this title, the sponsor is happy, and now it is just up to the guys to keep this thing going.”
Eugene Bain had a monster double-double for the Cybots, with 43 points and 21 rebounds. He even added five assists and four steals. Georgio Walkes had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists, and Billy Sands added 14 points, eight assists, five rebounds and three steals. Adorn Charlow was the only other player in double figures for the Cybots, with 12 points. He also pulled down nine rebounds.
Dion McPhee paced the Royals with 30 points and eight rebounds. Devon Johnson came off the bench to score 14 points, and Kovan Strachan was the only other player in double figures for them, with 12 points. Strachan added six assists, four rebounds and two steals. The government league title for the Cybots on Saturday night, was their second in the past four years. They also won the title in 2009.
