Mar 25, 2019-
Times International College hammered Xavier International College 68-38 to claim the title of the first Inter-college (U-18) Basketball Tournament title on Sunday.
In a one-sided final match at the White House basketball court, Jasman Tamang scored 20 points to hand Times the title. Their dominance began from the first quarter after scoring 19 points and restricting Xavier to just nine. A slim 16-14 lead in the second quarter stretched their lead to 12 points going into the second half.
As Xavier seeking comeback in the game, Times virtually threw them out of the contest scoring a whopping 26 points in the penultimate quarter while restricting the opponents to just 11 points. With a 26-point deficit, Xavier gave it up in the final quarter which looked only a formality. Times also led the final period 7-4 to seal a comprehensive victory.
Tamang was declared the most valuable player of the tournament, while Sunil Thapa of Xavier took the highest scorer’s honour.
