Malezi Basketball Grabs Chance To High School Finals

The stage was set at Sunshine Academy today for the semi-finals of the Lang’ata District. Malezi High, St. Aloysious, Lang’ata High, Olympic and Light Academy were the teams present to fight for their place in the finals.

The Malezi Varsity, Langata District favourites, came out the gates with fire in their eyes and clearly something to prove. Eddy Amos (PG/SG), freshman, had his first high school basketball depute today verses the St. Aloysious team; stepping in for Captain Zack Okong’o who had an ankle injury and is out of action for the District Play-offs.

With their leader out one knew how Malezi would respond, but respond they did scoring a convincing 94 points against their opponents; ending the game with a 94—04 vicotry over the St. Aloysious.

Leading Scorers were:
Fred Odhiambo (F)   28-points, 15-rebounds, 2-blocks
John Madol (SG/SF)  18-points, 8-rebounds, 9-assissts, 8-steals
Lwal Mathiang (SF/F)          16-points, 17-rebounds, 3-steals
Samuel Mwalo (PG/SG)        16-points, 8-assissts, 7-steals

The District Final Game tips off tomorrow at Sunshine Academy, where the Malezi Varsity team will continue their wins streak and attain District bragging rights and title.

Come out and support the Finals.
