Basketball Match News From Our Two Intrepid Student Reporters
The 1sts experienced a back and forth game against Trinity on Friday night, with the Trinity players and Old Boys boisterous all game. After blocking out the crowd noise, the 1sts took a narrow lead early in the game, and held onto to a 2-4 point lead for the majority of the first half, until Trinity made a run at the end of the half, which resulted in Waverley being down by 5 at half time.
Waverley came out strong in the 2nd half, full of energy and bringing the intensity, however Trinity’s intensity and energy also rose due to Waverley’s clear intent. Trinity were able to hold onto this lead for most of 3rd and 4th quarter, until a few quick 3s and fastbreak layups for Trinity and missed shots from Waverley, saw them close the game out and win by 15.
The final score was 83-68, with Marko Rangan contributing 20 points, Tom Gleeson 15 and Sergej Jakovljevic 8.
The 2nds had a tough-fought game as well on Friday night, that started with multiple 3s being made by Solomon Tuqiri and James Jones. After back and forth 1st and 2nd halves, Trinity took the lead late, and after plenty of missed free throws by Waverley, the 2nds were unable to close the game out late.
The final score was 36-30, with Solomon Tuqiri, Ashar Te Rata and Dakota Fanning standing out on the night.
