Basketball: Clean sweep for Wolves in Xmas tournament

Junior and Senior Leagues end 2020 on a high

It was a night of fun and games at the NSC as the regular basketball season gave way to a Junior Carnival and a rapid-fire Senior Tournament as an enjoyable way to round out 2020.

There was a combination of delight and regret in the Junior carnival as the Coaches lost their undefeated 2v2 record to the cheers of the Junior crowd; coaches Jake Glover and Tom Dalton-Brown regretting training their players so well.

The Senior league, meanwhile gave way to quick turnaround tournament with 12-minutes games that favoured run and gun teams.

Eagles fared well with Jack Coates and Braeden Roche running the lanes and Jets saw success with pressure defence and some swish shooting from rookie Connor Moughtin.

Wolves posted the result of the night though with a perfect record, including one game where they turned a 12-point deficit into a 2-point win, thanks to the aggressive defence of Michael Pardoe and inside work of Jack Murray changing the game.

The basketball league is now on a break until early January, with the Basketball Association wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
