ZIZ Sports…(May 31 2010) – Heavy rainfall over the weekend forced the cancellation of a number of games in the LIME SKABA league. However the showers held up on Sunday to allow the defending champions Horsford’s Ghetto Roots to continue their domination of arch-rivals the Rams Hitters.
The much anticipated match-up was as usual a very exciting encounter although the Ghetto Roots had the advantage for most of the game. The Roots were up by as much as 20 points late in the 3rd quarter led by league MVP Rymal “Bally” Browne. Hitters were led by SKABA Legend Trevor “Marty” Huggins who continues to amaze with his brilliant shooting displays after over 30 years of playing in the league. Marty unleashed a barrage of 3 pointers that enabled the Hitters to claw their way back into the game. David Dowell and the veteran Shawn “Shabba” Forbes supported Huggins well as the team made a late game run to close the 20 point gap within 5. However the steady play of Rymal Browne and Lyle ” Dixie ” Duggins kept the Hitters at bey and enabled Ghetto Roots to earn another impressive victory over the former multi-time SKABA champions.
The final score saw Ghetto Roots handing Hitters their 3rd straight loss for the season with a 82-79 victory. Ghetto Roots record now improves to 4-1 while Hitters are still in search of their first win with a 0-3 record. Ghetto Roots will next play on Thursday against the only other winless team in the division the Ghaut Bucks.

Nash was unstoppable and exhibited why he is one of the University of Alaska ‘s top players . Nashorn along with Javid “Spanish” Williams a new recruit for the University of Alaska and older brother Noren Maynard formed a very formidable frontcourt that might arguably be the best in the league and was no doubt too much for Cayon to handle. The final score saw St.Pauls Tuff Knots delivering a huge thumping to the Cayon Lions 89-55.
St.Pauls will next play on Sunday against Fig Tree while Cayon will take on the red hot undefeated Cotton Ground Rebels on Saturday.
