Carlton BC became the first team to reach the final when they powered their way to a smashing 70 points to 66 victory over the powerful Colombo BC in their Carlton Cup 2010 inter-club “A” Division basketball tournament match worked off at the Depot Police Courts in Bambalapitiya yesterday.
Even then their success was in the balance at one stage as they were trailing 30-34 at half time after Colombo BC had snatched the initiative and dominated play during most of the first half.
However, Carlton BC got their act together well in the second quarter and took the lead a few minutes before the final whistle largely due to the individual brilliance of Mithila Abeysekera (29) who had a splendid game in both attack and defence.
