Basketball Dragons win Bayon cup in smart style

Smart Dragons lived up to their name by storming to a 61-38 win over Ty Fashion to record their second straight victory in the Bayon Airlines inter-club basketball tournament at the Olympic Stadium indoor arena on Sunday.

The Dragons got off to an 18-6 first-quarter advantage, only to let the Khmer-Chinese Ty Fashion claw back to within two points in the second at 24-22.

This swing was mainly due to the fact that the Dragons missed out on several easy baskets and Ty substitute Chan Phearom seized onto chances to fashion a string of fast break buckets.

However, Colin Hodgkins kept scoring from the wing for the Dragons to stretch the lead to 38-26, and Ibou Ndiaye sunk in 11 to keep the offence rolling for the side.

Earlier, Le Da Wang put behind their shocking one-point defeat in their opening game to put aside Chaung Yu Chamber of Commerce 43-27.

In the final game of the day, ALLN recorded the biggest win so far by trouncing Kun Zhou 82-24.
