TK Tea House recorded a second successive victory in the Veteran Low San Shield of the Low San Brunei Basketball Open after a 77-64 win over GHK at the Brunei Basketball Association Basketball Court in Batu Bersurat last night.

The Group ‘A’ pacesetters had done all the offensive work in the first half of the tie after building a whopping 51-26 lead and by the fourth quarter, the contest was settled.

While free throws put GHK into touching distance early on in the first quarter, the attacking superiority of TK Tea House were too great to repel.

TK Tea House’s Elvin Requintin enjoyed a personal haul of 20 points while R T Binas managed 13 points.

“Our teamwork was the key to winning the match. All players possess good skills whether in defence, shooting or other aspects of the game,” Chong told the Bulletin.

“We played all the players and rotated during the game. Our players were not tired and have the stamina as well.”

TK Tea House remain a force in the veteran tournament and boast a star-studded line-up with stars such as Elvin Requintin and R T Binas dominating the court.

Chong, who also leads the team in a coaching role, also selected players suited in their best positions in the team.

“I know where to play the players. We also have other coaches and we discuss how to play. I know the positions of the Borneo Cup veterans including who the shooter or the centre,” he added.

Elvin Requintin, one of the key players of the team, plays as a playmaker while R Bibat controls the team.
