Ardenne High and St George's College will clash in the deciding game of their best-of-three ISSA/KFC Under-16 basketball finals today at the National Stadium, starting at 4 p.m.

Ardenne are seeking to capture the double over their opponents, following their 2-0 series win in the Under-19 final on Monday. The Basil Barrett coached-team defea-ted St George's 40-36 on Monday to level the series at 1-1.

"The boys are in high spirits and ready to go, and you will see a better performance from us tomorrow," said Barrett, whose team was beaten in last year's finals by Jamaica College. "We will have to do a lot more blocking out on the defence, and I believe that once we able to do this, then we should win the game," Barrett said.

Barrett added: "They are a good team and we are not going take them lightly, because if we don't do what we are supposed to do, then we are going to lose this championship."

Ardenne will be depending hea-vily of the likes of centre Warren Honeywell, forward Josef Thomas, and point guard Brandon Goldsmith.

Meanwhile, the Clifford Brown coached-St George's College will look to the likes of Javed Habib, Rasheed Andrews, and Shaun Graham, who have all played key roles in their success this season.
