KL Ruby down Singapore to continue winning run
SEGAMAT: KL Ruby continued their winning ways in the Malaysian National Basketball League (MNBL) womenís event by crushing the Singapore national team 79-35 yesterday.
Ruby. who were winless in the first leg, have certainly turned their fortunes around following the arrival of new Filipino import Allana Lim two days ago.
They were so good that they limited the Singaporeans to just single digit scores in the first two quarters and were leading 39-14 by half time.
They continued to pile on the pressure and a further 20 points each in the third and fourth quarter saw them close the gap on league leaders KL Bina Puri.
Allana, who had an outstanding debut against Bina Puri on Friday when she scored 25 points, turned in another impressive performance yesterday to rack up 19 points while Ng Mei Kuan chipped in with 10 points.
It was the fourth straight defeat for the Singaporeans who had lost to Segamat BA 52-75 on Friday.
Ruby will face Segamat today in the final match of the second leg while Singapore take on Bina Puri.
