Watch the live stream of the Sweet 16 game between South Conference top seeds SGS College and EHWLC in the EABL Playoffs.
SGS want to go a step further than last season, where they suffered a heartbreaking loss in the final to Barking Abbey. Having gone undefeated last year, their only loss came in the final – this year they suffered two losses, going 16-2, as they will look to make up for it when it matters most.
They returned their core this year, led by the ‘big three’ of Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye (18.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.5 assist and 2.0 steals), Tamas Okros (16.4ppg, 8.0rpg, and 2.9apg) and Deane Williams (16.4ppg, 12.9rpg, 1.8apg, 1.2spg, and 1.4bpg), who will all be looking for one last title run before departing.
For EHWLC, it will be a tough match up, finishing the season 7-11. Having struggled since the departure of England U18 Jules Dang Akodo to Germany, EHWLC have lost 8 of their last 10 games. Kevaun McKenzie is holding the scoring load, averaging 20.3ppg (and 7.3rpg, 2.3apg and 2.5spg), while point guard Maurice Gilbert is handing out 4.1 helpers per game to go with his 11.5 points.
EHWLC met SGS in their final game of the season, and suffered a 106-49 blowout.
