Orions looked good from the start as power-forward Darshan (17) scored quickly to help them to narrow a 13-11 first-quarter lead. Orions scored 14 points in the second quarter alone to rush to a 27-15 lead.

NGV, who had a poor second quarter, fared no better in the third as they scored only four points to trail 19-42.

Achaiah (10) tried his hand at reducing the deficit but Orions’ Binoy completed the formalities.
