It will be a repeat of last year's final when defending champions Campari and former champions Kingston Wharves meet in the 2018 National Association of Domino Bodies (NADB) Kingston & St Andrew Region/Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum Business House League grand finale at the National Housing Trust car park today.

Campari defeated Kingston Wharves 117-107 in an intense encounter that saw the winners denying Kingston Wharves a historic fourth-consecutive Division One title last year. It was sweet revenge for Campari, who had lost the last two previous finals to their opponents. However, Kingston Wharves will be aiming to turn the tables on the champions this time around and another intense battle should be in the making.

Campari had defeated Jamaica Observer 126-92 in their semi-final match last Friday, while Kingston Wharves got the better of Urban Development Corporation (UDC) 99-87 in their semi-final match. Jamaica Observer and UDC will do battle in the third-place play-off as well.

Both teams have met three times this season — twice in the league and once in the knockout championships, with Kingston Wharves holding a 2-1 lead over the champions. With the strength of both teams, it is expected to be a close encounter, but the men from Kingston Wharves looked more settled and so are given the edge to dethrone the current champions.

In Division Two, former four-time Division One champions RJRGleaner will tackle Digicel in the grand finale. This encounter should be a very easy task for RJRGleaner. The men with their home at 7 North Street are unbeaten in the league and look set to continue in that vein. Digicel are capable on their day, but getting by RJRGleaner will be a huge mountain to climb.

In reaching the final, RJRGleaner had defeated Kris an Charles 125-116 while Digicel defeated Sagicor Jamaica 122-100. Both Kris an Charles and Sagicor Jamaica will contest the third-place play-off match.

The winner of Division One will receive $30,000, while the runners-up will pocket $20,000. In Division Two, the winner will walk away with $25,000 and the losers will get $15,000. The grand finale and third-place play-off in both divisions will start at 6:30 pm.
