By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Benny’s Belize Hurricanes blasted the Punta Gorda Panthers 143-78 at the Belize City Civic Center on Friday night as the Belize Elite Basketball League’s (BEBL) second round got underway.

The Hurricanes scored the highest number of points in a single game improving on 132 points scored by the Orange Walk Running Rebels last week in their 132-68 triumph over the Panthers.

The 65-point win is also the biggest since last week’s Running Rebels’ 132-68 routing of the Panthers.

The Hurricanes sport a 6-2 win-loss record atop the standings ahead of the Griga Dream Ballers (5-2), at least for the time being as Griga plays tonight in Dangriga.

Tyrie Orosco led the Canes with 38 points and 14 rebounds on Friday night. Victor Evans nailed 26 while Jamell Harris scored 19 points and 8 rebounds, Kris Frazier added 18 and 7, and Kirk Smith Jr, who finally played, contributed 16 and 6. Glenda Lopez sunk 15 more with 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals.

Davis Tavian hit 27 points for the Panthers to go with 10 boards, 4 assists, and 6 steals. Chance Leslie added 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Julien Travis scored 13 and pulled 8 rebounds.

In the other game on Friday, the Orange Walk Town Running Rebels (5-3) beat the Cayo Western Ballaz (3-5) 101-89.

The BEBL continues on Saturday when the Belmopan Red Taigaz (3-3) match up against the San Pedro Tiger Sharks (2-4) at 8:00 pm in Belmopan and the Griga Dream Ballers (5-2) take on the Digi Belize City Defenders (4-3) at 9:00 pm in Dangriga.
