Baraccudas land in records

Brunei outfit to play final game against KL on Jan 15

THE Brunei Barracudas got themselves into the Asean Basketball League (ABL) record books on Sunday for all the wrong reasons.

The Brunei outfit found themselves on the receiving end of another beating against the Singapore Slingers as they went down as the team that allowed the most points scored by an opponent, as well as the team with the largest losing margin.

The Slingers needed a win and it was clear they knew what they had to do never taking their foot off the pedal, humiliating the Barracudas with a 102-61 scoreline, enroute to becoming the first team to break the century mark in the two-year-old league.

The triumph also means that the Barracudas have yet to defeat the Slingers in six meetings since the inaugural season.

The Slingers were relentless on defence and held Brunei's first professional team to without a single field goal in the first quarter.

The game seemed over when the scoreboard read 27-2 at the end of the first stanza with the Barracudas' two points coming via Christopher Garnett (211-C-80, college: Indiana SE) from the charity stripe.

It seemed like there was no way back for the Barracudas with the Slingers leading comfortably at 52-20 at halftime.

The Barracudas were held to a dismal 33 per cent from the field connecting on only 26 of their 80 attempts. They only made one out of their 12 attempts from behind the arc as well.

The Slingers had their full roster of 12 players get on the scoresheet in the match with Filipino Avenido Leonidez (186-G) leading the way with 23 points.

'We came out like a hungry lion and we meant business. We just played hard defence,' said Avenido, during an interview with The Brunei Times, yesterday.

'All of us on the team were happy when (Tan Chin) Hong made a steal to make it 100 points to put us in the history books of the ABL,' he added.

However, the job is far from done for the Slingers as they are yet to secure themselves a spot in the playoffs racing against Satria Muda BritAma.

The Slingers, who hold a one-game lead with a 7-7 win loss record, face a daunting task against the league leaders Thailand Slammers on Saturday at the Nimibutr Indoor Stadium in Bangkok.

On the other hand, Satria Muda, who are on 6-8, will host the Philippine Patriots at the BritAma arena in Jakarta on the same day.

Should Satria Muda win their game, the Slingers will be left with no choice but a must-win situation.

'We need to win our next game to ensure a place in the playoffs. I hope the team's spirit will be kept high and we will continue to do what we do,' said Avenido.

'We'll not rely on them (Satria Muda) and we need to finish off our own assignment,' he added.

Only the Barracudas have nothing left to play for in the final day of the 15-game season and they have confirmed their basement position in the league.

All the Barracudas can do now is seek redemption against the KL Dragons on Jan 15 at 8pm at the Indoor Stadium of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.

The Dragons thrashed the Barracudas 87-48 on Oct 30 last year in a game that never reach the final buzzer.
