Into the fifth game week in the ongoing Bayon Airlines inter-club basketball tournament for the Bayon Cup, and strong market fancies Extra Joss Fighters and Smart Dragons continued to assert themselves. Both picked up easy wins on Sunday at the Olympic Stadium Indoor Arena.
Both these CBL outfits came close to posting century marks before settling for big margin wins. While the Fighters, who lost to Mekong Tigers in the CBL final showdown late last year, brought out their big guns to blow out Chuan Yu SH 98-27.
Colin Hodgkins was in great nick for Smart Dragons, posting 24 points in the side’s 96-52 win over Guang Dong to maintain their unbeaten streak. In other matches, the all-Khmer Youth 157 paid a heavy price for being too ambitious from inside the zone as ALLN’s Sean Looney and Curran Hendry dominated to chalk up a 68-34 win. Meanwhile, Bayon Airlines scored a 81-69 win over Le Da Wang.
