It was the third en­counter be­tween these two sides this sea­son all of them won by the Greens. This time with­out the ser­vices of Dirk Schem­bri abroad and the con­tin­ued ab­sence of Abra­ham Portelli they still man­aged to beat the Pao­lites who could bank on this sea­son's rul­ing of lo­cal for­eign­ers.

One must also men­tion that Hibs are miss­ing Kieron Caru­ana's play due to his long term ab­sence.

Hibs opened up with a brace of hoops with Flo­ri­ana mak­ing up an 8-1 run with a cou­ple of Nikola Vaso­vic triples.

Al­varo Lizaur's hoops had the Pao­lites again in front with Chad Pa­tus nail­ing a late trey for a Flo­ri­ana lead. In teh sec­ond pe­riod Flo­ri­ana made up a 7-0 run for a bet­ter ad­van­tage but Hibs cut down on their deficit.

The Greens put in a fur­ther 120 run as Pa­tus and Nikola An­dreje­vic net­ted their treys. Hibs' re­ac­tion brought them an 11-2
