Flying high: Bayon Air win again in b-ball cup

The ongoing Bayon Air-lines Cup inter-club basketball tournament saw the title sponsors outfit chalk up their second successive victory at the Olympic Stadium’s indoor arena on Sunday.

Served well in the offence once again by Chan Honwai and Shan Li, the Bayon Airlines side thrashed Chuan Yu Chamber of Commerce 71-38 to follow up on their equally impressive win in the opener last week.

While the team’s double win has strengthened its chances of making it to the playoffs, two of the Group A heavyweights, Smart Dragons and Extra Joss Fighters, are yet to hit the floor. Both CBL teams will open their campaigns on Sunday.

Meanwhile in Group B, Wat Koh High School suffered their second straight loss, going down 65-72 to An Hai Chamber of Commerce. The High School side, managed by former CBF secretary general Mak Chanphirun, is struggling to find its chemistry on the court despite the fact that many players on the roster are from 2015 CBL championship winning side Mekong Tigers.

In the day’s other matches, Lan Chang Jinag Gong Cheng beat De Fu Zhi Yi 63-43; Kun Zhou Ji Tuan beat He Nan Zong Chamber of Commerce 47-39; and Guang Dong Chamber of Commerce edged out Le Da Wang 45-44.
