Manie Joses topped the scoring charts in the Community Basketball League with an unstoppable 21 points to guide Access2Sports Under-12s to a 32-22 victory over Barnet East Giants.

Joses was in impressive form from the start of the game, banking nine points in the first half to ensure that the Islington team held a 13-10 advantage at the midway point.

He then scored all of his side’s points in the third period and added another seven in the final quarter to claim a higher total than any other player in this round of league games.

“That was a lot of fun,” said Joses. “My team helped me to get open which helped me to shoot well. I love playing basketball and look forward to the CBL every weekend.”
