Marshall MK Lions 102 (35, 56, 84) (Holmes 32, Morris 23, Harrison 13)
PAWS London Capital 54 (12, 31, 41) (Gariba 25, Ataha 12, Knysas 8)
The Marshall MK Lions had no trouble overturning PAWS London Capital tonight, as Vince Macaulay's side raced to a 102-54 win at home against the Capital. Frank Holmes continued to make a noise around the league with a double-double of 32 points and 13 rebounds, Dawud Morris scored 23 points, including 4/4 three pointers, in 18 minutes of action, and EJ Harrison ensured that the Lions Atlantic contingent dominated, as he quietly went about his business for 13 points and 9 assists. The Capital were led by the irrepressible Ibrahim Gariba, who posted 25 points and 10 rebounds.
Yorick Williams was the man to get the Lions offense going early on, as he fired from downtown to get the scorers working. Frank Holmes and EJ Harrison then chipped in to take the Lions lead to 9-1 early on, as the home team were firing on all cylinders. The first quarter finished 35-12 in the Lions' favour.
The second quarter was a similar story, other than the Capital having a much better start, as Ibrahim Gariba scored six quick points without reply. However, Holmes continued to dominate in a quarter that finished 56-31 to the Lions.
The third quarter belonged to Dawud Morris, who netted all four of his three point attempts, whilst the Lions kept the visitors down to just 10 points in the period, a decisive point in the game. They then had no trouble converting this into a 102-54 victory, as all ten of the Lions' players had time on court.
Whilst the Lions sat ten places above the Capital before tonight's contest, Macaulay was keen to stress that every win is valuable. He said: 'I was very pleased with my team tonight. Dawud Morris scored his twenty three points in only eighteen minutes, which was great to see, and it is encouraging to see Frank Holmes finding his feet over here. In terms of the importance of tonight's win, we will take a win over the Boy Scouts, and by this, I mean that every win you can get is important in this league.'
