MONTEGO BAY, St James — Former champions Granville Jaguars and last season's losing finalists Cricket Club Knights will seek back-to-back wins when the Western Basketball Association Elite League continues today, with two games at Montego Bay Cricket Club starting at 5:00 pm.

Cricket Club Knights, who beat Sav-Elite Titans in the opening game last week, take on Cornwall Courts Chargers in the first game, while Jaguars, who beat Chargers on Thursday, will face Lucea Flames starting at 7:00 pm.

Jaguars, who were beaten in the semi-finals last season, scored a comfortable 15-point (88-73) win over Chargers at the Cricket Club on Thursday, as David Gordon and Ryan Harrison both scored double-doubles.

Granville got off to a fast start and led by double figures at the end of the first quarter 27-16 and, despite marginal recovery by Chargers in the second round, Jaguars still led by seven points, 43-36, and were ahead 65-53 at the end of the third quarter.

Gordon scored 20 points and had 22 rebounds and Harrison scored 13 points and had 14 rebounds while Dave Black scored a game-high 31 points for Granville.

Jason Blake scored 18 points for Cornwall Courts, Herbert Allen came off the bench to score 14 points, Giovanni Bailey had 13 points, and Timoy Campbell scored 11 points, also coming on as a sub.
