HAL downs KSP

Sports Reporter

BANGALORE: HAL's Umashankar with his 38 points helped his team to beat KSP 78-71 in the Senior division basketball league match at the Sree Kanteerava stadium indoor courts here on Tuesday.

Umashankar was fluid and forcefully effective and converted his chances with aplomb when both his fellow shooters— Rajkumar and Yasin— had a relatively low key match. The tall Sachindra provided a semblance of support.

Leading 26-11 at the first quarter was the cushion that HAL relied upon as the State Police team did come back strongly in the next three and even proved a decisive threat midway through the fourth to outscore the Aircraftmen 20-13. But it was just not enough to tilt the game its way. The scores read 22-21 and 17-19 in the second and third quarters with Raghavendra and Arun S. Bani being in the thick of action for KSP.

The results:

HAL 78 (Umashankar 38, Sachindra 13) bt KSP 71 (Raghavendra 27, Arun S. Bani 14); MEG 63 (Tinu Joseph 15, M. Manoj 11, Sridhar 10) bt SAI (Dharwad) 37 (Irappa Katimani 10); ASC 81 (Jay Ranga 32, Harish 20, Dharampal 15) bt Sports Hostel (Bangalore) 62 (Srinivas Naik 22, M.R. Varun 17, SriRaksha 10); Vijaya Bank 68 (Roshan 22, B.S. Gautham 13, Basavaraj 11) bt JSC 28 (Anil Babu 12); NAL Colony 51 (Hemant 22, Naveen 10) bt Beagles 46 (Puneet 16, Kuttappa 10).
