DEFENCE FORCE FINALLY GETS FIRST WIN AS VALENCIA GO 4-0

Derrick Boxhill scored a season-high 31 points to lead the Defence Force to an 87-76 win over Spartans.

It took the 2017 North Zone Champions 7 games in the Big Basketball League to finally register their first win, but it was a hard-fought win over lower-ranked Spartans (1-5). Spartans, had in fact led 22-21 after the first 10 minutes and maintained the 1-point lead at halftime (44-43).
