Mars leads GABA U23 Championships points table

Pepsi Sonics’ Kurvin Mars

Since the Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association (GABA) Under- 23 Championships began on April 27 at the National Gymnasium, the league has seen notable performances; one such being Kurvin Mars of Pepsi Sonics, who is presently leading the points table.
Mars has been a key member of the Sonics offensive unit with his ability to carry the ball through the net for 57 points in two games, 37 of which came from their 4-point loss to the Bounty Colts, and the remaining 20 from their 46-point victory versus Leonora D-Up.

Speaking to media operatives recently, Mars divulged the key to his success and spoke about the work being put in to reap rewards. “I would say attacking the basket and shots I have been putting up, because I’ve been doing a lot of work on the shots, and I’m coming out here the other night and tonight and it seems like it’s been working. They leave a lot of open plays, and as a point guard, I could see the plays and attack them very well. So, as they give me the space, I attack them right away, and I score the basket,” Mars divulged.
He added, “When I went home, I recognized I was a little off on the free throws the last game, so I went home and shot a free throw that improved tonight, so same thing. I am going to do it again, and hopefully to improve in the other game, and that is good to go.”
The ‘baller’ went on to speak on the team’s high expectations of winning their next game.
“So far, we looking to press up on the other teams that are coming ahead, and hopefully we play as before; and tonight we bring the same pressure and same pace that we have, and hopefully we play well and win that game as well,” Mars explained.
Pepsi Sonics will take the court on May 18th, as they come up against Unbeaten North Ruimveldt Ravens, and Kurvin Mars will be looking to extend his points tally in the Championships.
The league is sponsored by Wilson Plumbing Services and General Supplies and is supported by the National Sports Commission (NSC).
