The Under-16 east boys at the 2020 tournament. 21081718
It was a great start to the games for this season with a
good turnout of both players and supporters.
The game of the night was open men’s north vs east. It came
down to a last minute free throw by an east player that scored the final point
to draw the game.
“All in all it was a good fun night with most players being
a bit rusty and still trying to find their rhythm and skill set,” said John
Engu, director of the basketball committee.
He shared his excitement for the rest of the tournament and
continues to encourage the public to come down to the Papaaroa Hall if they are
free and support young people who are participating.
“Admission is free and there is some yummy food being sold
on the veranda so don’t forget to bring your wallets with you,” Engu said.
