Sabah and Negeri continue winning runs in Maba-Matrix Cup

PETALING JAYA: Sabah and Negri Sembilan continued their winning runs in the Maba-Matrix Cup basketball tournament yesterday.

Sabah thrashed Police 103-54 in a Group B match while Negri overcame Selangor 80-62 in a Group A match at the Balik Pulau Sports Complex in Penang to record their third win in a row in the competition.

Sabah had also beaten Johor and Terengganu in their earlier matches while Negri recorded wins over Armed Forces and Perak.

William Jude Jikiun was instrumental in the Sabah win as he earned 18 points for his team, recorded seven assists and chalked up five rebounds.

For Negri, Sean Ting was the standout performer, earning his side 24 points and made five rebounds.

Sean and his team will be out to extend their winning run against Penang next while Sabah will be out to do the same against Putrajaya.

Meanwhile, Terengganu recorded their first win in the tournament after edging Johor 68-57.

They will be relieved to finally triumph after losing to both Putrajaya and Sabah in their earlier matches.

The players in the competition will go all out to impress as 24 of them will be shortlisted for a selection camp and the final 15 will then be drafted into a Maba Selection Team for the Agong Cup later in the year.
