National Sports Council’s Junior Basketball


Makaari Jones continues to impress in the Co-operators General Insurance-sponsored National Sports Council’s Junior Basketball Competition and this afternoon his game-high 24 points propelled Queen’s College to a 60-27 over hosts Ellerslie Secondary.

Jones who plays forward was the only person to get into double figures but that did not matter because Queen’s College had an all-round team effort that allowed them to command the first three quarters 16-3, 42-13 and 55-21 and went on to take the game away from their opponents.

Seven of Queen’s 16 points in the opening quarter came from Jones while forward Gavin Ward who ended the game with nine contributed two and Jordan Lounges also scored four of his six points in that quarter. Ellerslie center Shaquille Chase who top-scored with ten for his team managed to score just two along with one from Shamar Duplesis. Read more
