: Corps of Military Police (CMP) ended HASC's victory streak with a 85-77 win in the State ‘A' division basketball league, for the Prof N.C. Parappa memorial trophy, at the Sree Kanteerava stadium courts here on Saturday.

Changing ends with a slender 29-28 lead, the Military Police, thanks to the brilliance of Rajesh, sneaked through in extra time after the teams were tied at 69-all at the end of the regulation period. Sweeto Francis kept the Aircraftmen in control with some fine shooting from the flanks and near.

But it all came to nought in the dying minutes, as the Cops tightened their defence, giving away nothing under the boards. HASC had won three matches on the trot last weekend.

In another match, Young Orions downed Koramangala SC 56-51.

The results : Young Orions 56 (Karthik 13, Abhishek 12) bt Koramangala SC 51 (Abhishek John 19, Rajesh Das 10); CMP 85 (Rajesh 18) bt HASC 77 (Sweeto Francis 23).
