St Kentigern College have clinched fourth pace on the Auckland Secondary Schools Boys Premier competition ladder after winning 96-75 at Avondale College on Wednesday.

The win means St Kent’s (7-7) edge Westlake Boys (6-8) out of play-off contention, a semi-final match up with regular season champions Mt Albert Grammar their reward.

The result also means that Avondale, despite having won two of their final four games, finish the season with the wooden spoon.

The game was still in the balance at three-quarter time with Avondale, after a strong third period, only 62-58 down.

However Zac Chan made three of his five triples in the fourth and the impressive Max Shorter (37 points) scored 11. With Shalom Broughton and Tom Chester combining for ten points St Kent’s dominated the final term (34-17) to book their first semi-final appearance since 2011.

Earlier, despite nine first quarter points from Jaga Mete, Avondale trailed 21-17 at the first break.

Armand Donaldson, Bradley McGregor, Keanu Eteru and Preston Karatau each made threes for Avondale in the second period but Levic Kerr, Broughton and Shorter piled on the points to give St Kent’s a 46-39 half-time lead.

Chan and Shorter were the only scorers for the visitors in the third as Jason Cullen and Michael Reddy helped Avondale close to within four points.

However St Kentigern held their nerve in the final period to seal their seventh win of the season and a trip to North Shore Events Centre on Friday night.

Tall Ferns in title chasing form in Australia

Stella Beck

Stella Beck in action for the Tall Ferns recently

It’s the business end of the season in the Australian State Basketball Leagues and Kiwi interest remains high in the Queensland Basketball League (QBL) and Big V League.

There is certain to be New Zealand representation in the QBL Final with Tall Ferns set to oppose each other in the upcoming semi-final.

Regular season champions Townsville Flames feature Stella Beck and Micaela Cocks with semi-final opponents Rockhampton Cyclones boasting Brooke Blair in their lineup.

Beck scored 12 points (5/7FG) and added 7 rebounds as the Flames doused North Gold Coast Seahawks 87-64 in the quarter-final. Cocks was a little subdued by her lofty standards scoring just five points to accompany 6 rebounds.

In another quarter-final Blair dropped 18 points (5/9 3PG) as the Cyclones blew past South West Metro Pirates 93-81.

The Purcell sisters combined for 52 points for the Pirates but it wasn’t enough to calm the Cyclones. Kalani Purcell came within a dime of a triple double (31 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists) while Natalie Taylor scored 12 points and Charmian Mellars contributed 9 points and 8 rebounds.

The Sunbury Jets, aided by 16 points (4/6FG, 7/7FT) from Tall Ferns forward Jess Bygate are through to their third consecutive Big V Grand Final series.

The defending champions, coached by former Tall Ferns Head Coach Kennedy Kereama, beat Knox Raiders 63-59 in the semi-final.

2016 Tall Fern guard Rebecca Ott scored a game high 31 points for Knox.

There is not such good news with regard to Tall Ferns playing in other leagues.

In Perth Toni Farnworth, playing for the defending champions Perry Lakes Hawks, has fallen out of contention in the State Basketball League play-offs in the quarter-finals.

In Adelaide Jordan Hunter, playing for Sturt Sabres, has been eliminated at the semi-final stage of the South Australia Premier League.

Back in Melbourne Chevannah Paalvast (Diamond Valley) and Jess Bygate (Sandringham Sabres) were knocked out in the early stages of SEABL play-off action.

The wrap on the final placings in Girls Premier Grade

Jazz

St Marys forward Jazz Kailahi-Fulu

The Auckland Secondary Schools Girls Premier regular season title was decided last month but there was still plenty at stake in the final round of games on Friday.

Summarising the final four games:

Auckland Girls Grammar completed an unbeaten regular season winning 14 straight games.

Westlake Girls secured the runners-up spot.

Rangitioto College, despites a loss, gained the fourth semi-final place at the expense of Massey High (who also lost). Rangitoto lost their round five game to Massey 80-69 (-11) but beat them 69-53 (+16) in the return clash giving them a +5 differential after both teams finished with a 6-8 record.

St Kentigern College have the less desirable wooden spoon ‘title’.

The closest finish of the round was at St Kentigern College where the hosts took on Carmel College in the quest to avoid that wooden spoon.

Carmel looked destined for the basement spot when they found themselves 17 points down (60-43) with 1:30 left in the third period. However eight points in the closing 90 seconds of the quarter – seven of those to Tayla Dalton – propelled Carmel back into contention – 60-51 down with a quarter to play.

Kayla Robertson-Tekki restored St Kent’s double digit lead before Carmel reeled off a 11-2 run to tie the scores at 64 points apiece with five minutes to play.

Natasha Leishman went coast-to-coast for St Kent’s but Dalton with a left hander in traffic tied the scores again.

With four minutes to play Dalton picked up a controversial fifth foul – Carmel coach Gareth Teahan needing a timeout to discuss strategy with his leading scorer sidelined.

Courtney Griffiths put St Kent’s ahead but Broomfield tied proceedings again.

Robertson-Tekki gave the hosts a 70-68 advantage but Broomfield leveled the scores for the fourth time in the quarter.

Izzy Cattermole then made the crucial go-ahead basket for Carmel (72-70) with 2:30 to play – time for both teams to have a number of scoring opportunities but none would drop until Broomfield stepped to the free-throw line with two seconds on the clock – she made one to give Carmel an exciting 73-70 win.

Westlake secured the runners-up spot on the table with a solid 85-75 win at home to North Shore neighbours Rangitoto College – despite the result Rangitoto edged Massey out of fourth spot on points differential to book a place in the semi-finals.

Westlake point guard Tabatha Leyson scored the first five points before a Hannah Wentworth three made it 11-6 to the hosts.

Centaine Duckworth-Noon and Emma Pugh were enjoying an inside battle as a Rosie Dil three on the quarter-time buzzer took Lake to a 24-16 lead.

Leyson, as she had in the first, made early scores in the second period before Rangi closed to within two points (31-29) via scores from Robyn Blackstock and Gracie Hasler-Ewins.

Six points late in the period from Jess Moors meant Westlake carried a 44-31 half-time lead into the interval.

Wentworth, on her way to a season best equaling 28 points, made three triples in the third frame although Leyson, Moors and Makenzee Boucher matched that output collectively for Westlake

A Bella Elgar And-1 play kept Rangi in the hunt, trailing 63-55 at three-quarter time.

The two teams traded baskets in the final quarter – the closest Rangi got was within six points (79-73) after an Aroha Rogers score with two minutes to play.

However baskets down the stretch from the Dil’s, Rosie and Sophie, ensured the runners-up spot for Westlake.

Rangitoto 75 – H Wentworth 28, I Elgar 13, G Hasler-Ewins 10, R Blackstock 6

Westlake 85 – J Moors 21, T Leyson 15, R Dil 12, E Shearer 11, M Davidson 10

 

Massey High went down 57-44 against St Mary’s in a loss that cost them a top four finish and a place in the semi-finals.

A St Mary’s victory didn’t look on the cards in the early stages with Ramona Fuiavaa scoring seven early points to propel Massey to a 16-7 quarter time advantage.

Jazz Kailahi-Fulu, returning to the St Mary’s lineup after New Zealand duties, led a strong response in the second period – the scores locked at 25 points each at the interval.

Fuiavaav and Shauna Povey took their personal tallies into double figures but it was St Mary’s that dominated proceedings to lead 43-32 at the last break. Safena Te Nana-Williams and Riana Matiseni both made key baskets in the quarter.

Massey’s scoring output improved a little in the fourth but the Kailahi-Fulu sisters Jazz and Zaaliyah ensured that St Mary’s would finish their first season in Prem’s on a high.

St Mary’s 57 – J Kailahi-Fulu 18, R Matiseni 13, Z Kailahi-Fulu 11, S Te Nana-Williams 10

Massey 44 – S Povey 17, R Fuiavaa 11, A Schuster 8

 

Auckland Girls Grammar completed an unbeaten regular season with a 69-51 win against Mt Albert Grammar but unfortunately I haven’t received a scoresheet to provide additional details.

AGGS will take on Rangitoto in semi-final action on Friday at NSEC with Westlake matching up with MAGS.

MAGS boys seal Minor Premiership

mt albert

Mt Albert Grammar have been crowned Auckland Secondary Schools Boys Premier Grade regular season champions after defeating local rivals Auckland Grammar School 79-58 on Friday.

Mt Albert finished the regular season with an impressive 13-1 record having won twelve straight games.

MAGS claimed the Minor Premiership on point’s differential from Rosmini College who also finished with just one loss.

Unfortunately the individual scorers from the MAGS v AGS game is not available.

What is still unclear is which team will claim the fourth semi-final spot and which will finish with the wooden spoon.

The Avondale versus St Kentigern College fixture is still to be played (hopefully the two teams will meet on Monday) and the result of that game has a major bearing on the Premier standings.

A win for St Kentigern will see them edge Westlake out of fourth spot but a win for Avondale would see them avoid the wooden spoon as they hold points differential over St Peter’s if the two finish with a 3-11 record.

2-11 Avondale

Avondale hadn’t won a game eight days ago but now they have two victories to celebrate after they comfortably beat St Peter’s 96-68.

Once again they were paced by Jaga Mete (41 points) as he posted his second 40+ points haul of the season. He received excellent support from Jack Childs who recorded a season best 30 points.

Whititera Parata and Phoenix Lepolu got St Peter’s off to a solid start as they trailed by just a single point at quarter-time (23-22).

Mete and Armand Donaldson began to make inroads against the St Peter’s defence in the second, helping Avondale to 45-37 lead at the interval.

Parata made ten points in the third period but Mete and Childs dominated the scoring as Avondale increased their lead to 68-52 with ten minutes remaining.

Three triples from Childs in the last period – he made seven in the game – ensured a successful excursion for Avondale who could make it three wins in four games if they can overcome St Kent’s.

St Peter’s 68 – W Parata 20, P Leupolu 17, L Buckingham 9, I Franklin 6, O Arlove 6

Having put on a shooting clinic against St Kentigern College last week Westlake Boys encountered a bout of the scoring yips in the North Shore derby at home to Rangitoto College going down 80-61.

Paora Winitana opened the scoring for Westlake but three consecutive baskets from Tommy Te Puni edged Rangitoto ahead 11-10.

Winitana and Jackson Port had the last say in the period – Westlake ahead 15-14 at quarter-time.

Obadaiah Paea and Ethan Skelton both made threes to give the visitors a 23-17 advantage. Dylan Wilkie made a triple for Westlake but they were finding baskets hard to come by and trailed 38-26 at half-time.

Harry Payne began to find his touch in the third period, the Rangi lead out to 47-31.

Ryan Reader connected from long range for Westlake but 14 points in the period from Payne gave Rangi a 56-43 advantage with ten to play.

Despite a triple from Tom Cowie Westlake’s shooting woes continued in the fourth quarter.

Rontel Russo and Logan McIntosh took the lead close to twenty points and when Payne converted an And-1 play Rangi led 71-50 with five to play.

An acrobatic score from Cowie excited the home crowd but it was only a consolation effort as Rangi eased through the final period to record their second win on the bounce.

Westlake 61 – T Cowie 12, J Kooiman 11, P Winitana 11, E Clark 6

Rangitoto 80 – H Payne 26, O Paea 14, T Te Puni 12, L McIntosh 7

Rangi bench

Shalom Broughton scored a season high 32 points and with Levic Kerr also impressing with 24 points St Kentigern College pushed Rosmini all the way before eventually going down 89-78.

NZ U17 teammates Broughton and Mitch Dance were out of the gates early with both scoring a dozen in the opening ten minutes – Rosmini ahead by the smallest of margins 21-20.

Max Shorter came to the fore in the second as St Kent’s opened up a 44-41 half-time lead.

Broughton made a late triple at the back end of the third frame but it was a period dominated by the visitors.

Tyler Martin and Thomas Morgan provided some needed spark off the bench for Rosmini. Morgan, in good form of late, scored 8 points in the period and with Martin and Marvin Williams-Dunn knocking down threes Rosmini opened up a 67-57 lead at the three-quarter mark.

Kerr and Broughton continued to apply pressure on the Rosmini defence and add to their points tally but 8 more points from Morgan and contributions from Williams-Dunn and Taine Murray got Rosmini over the line – but only just.

New Zealand win silver at U18 Asian Champs

U18 podium

New Zealand produced a highly commendable effort in the Final of the FIBA U18 Asian Championship in Thailand on Saturday before going down 72-63 against Australia.

When you think only on Tuesday they were beaten 111-62 by the same team in Pool play the improvement was marked.

Max Darling top scored for New Zealand with twenty points with Kruz Perrott-Hunt and Flynn Cameron scoring 16 points apiece.

Darling averaged 13 points per game and along with James Moors (14.0ppg) and Perrott-Hunt (13.7ppg) all three featured in the top twenty scorers.

Moors top the rebounding count with 7.9 boards per game.

Cameron had a strong tournament finishing second on the assists list (5.6pg) and fifth in the steals column with 2.4 per outing.

In the shooting stats Max de Geest was the leading three-point exponent (10 from 26 at 39%), Moors was the most efficient from the free throw line (22 from 31 at 71%) and Darling the best from the field (36 from 58 at 62%).

Whelan Trophy play-off teams set in Canterbury Schools Basketball

kjAGSS2Q

As was the case with the Thomson Trophy, Division Two in the Whelan Competition also featured a three-way tie for first place. After using the FIBA classification procedures, Avonside Lady Eagles finished first, Ellesmere second and Lincoln in third place.

Molly Cockburn led the way for Avonside with 24 points, and needed every one of them to come away with a 70-57 win, as Kenny Perkin’s Villa Maria team was only five points down late in the fourth quarter. Megan Shannon (15) and Bella Digby (14) also scored well for the Lady Eagles, while Casey Robinson (20) and Molly Grafton (13) headlined the Villa Maria effort. These two teams will face off against each other next week as well in a quirk of the draw, with Villa Maria qualifying in sixth place.

Lincoln High was too strong for Te Pā o Rākaihautū, beating them 60-16 to finish third. Four players had exactly ten points each for Lincoln: Mandy Herman, Sophie Withell, Maria Mendoza and Samantha McCrone.

Middleton Grange held all of the Rangiora players under ten points each as they won 64-40, as a 19-2 start essentially decided the game. Sofia Kennedy (21) was well supported by Maia Williamson (12) and Fia Lai Kong (11). This win locks the Gators into fifth place for 2018.

Rangi Ruru had a 66-49 win over Kaiapoi as they built a ten point lead in the second quarter, and never let the visitors get closer than that the rest of the way. Ashlee Strawbridge (19) was key in the win, with Connie Taylor (11) and Bailey Chamberlain (10) chiming in. Helen Mathews (19) and Sinead McConchie (17) scored well for Kaiapoi, but will now be locked into fourth place for semi-final night.

With no Thomson Trophy Division One games, Ashburton and St. Thomas locked up home semi-finals in Division Two, whilst Papanui and Cathedral College will be the two teams travelling for a chance to play in the Grand Final.

Whelan Division One has one more round before their playoffs begin, as does the Thomson Division Two competition. Thomson Division One and Whelan Division Two both have the top six teams involved in Quarter-Finals, with the three winning teams progressing, as well as the highest seeded losing team.

On August 15 the NZ Broadcasting School will be live-streaming two fantastic games from Cowles Stadium (free entry as well). A top four Whelan Matchup between Rangi Ruru and Christchurch Girls’ is scheduled to tip off at 6:30pm, with a boys’ Quarter-final matchup between the Shirley Boys’ High Spartans and Christchurch Boys’ following (scheduled to tip at 8:00pm).

Penina Davidson outstanding but Rainbow Wahine too good for Premiere North

_DSC3822_150

The University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine eventually proved too strong for New Zealand International Basketball Tours Premiere North pulling away in the final quarter to win 71-57 at Auckland Boys Grammar School on Thursday.

It was a margin that didn’t do justice to the Premiere team’s effort as they led for a time in the third period and only trailed 49-46 with ten minutes to play.

An understandably stuttering start, given that the Premiere team gathered for the first time on the morning of the game and Hawaii only arrived in the country on Wednesday, was shaded by the visitors 18-12.

The Premiere coaching staff were not afraid to use their youngest talent in unison – all four high school players, Tayla Dalton, Jazz Kailahi-Fulu, Shauna Povey and Sharne Pupuke-Robati were on court together ahead of the Rainbow Wahine taking a 31-22 lead into the locker room.

A good sized crowd got behind the home team as they made a strong start to the second half.

The Premiere team made a conscious effort to get the ball inside to forwards Penina Davidson (22 points and 10 rebounds), Makayla Daysh and Pupuke-Robati (10 points) – a tactic that reaped some benefit as the hosts opened the half with a 10-3 run.

Davidson, ahead of her departure to take up a contract with the Adelaide Lightning in the Australian WNBL, displayed her scoring versatility with a long three to compliment some skillful inside work, the Premiere’s taking the lead after additional good work from Donna Fermanis and Arielle Parai.

As expected from a quality NCAA Division I team the Rainbow Wahine responded and carried a 49-46 advantage into the last quarter.

The Premiere’s effort faded in the final minutes, the University of Hawaii closing out a deserved first-up victory on their four game tour of New Zealand and Australia.

_DSC3738_107

After a day of relaxation in Auckland on Friday the Rainbow Wahine head to Christchurch for a game against NZ Premiere South – Sunday, 4.30pm start at Cowles Stadium.

Another entertaining game is in prospect with Tessa Boagni headlining the Premiere lineup. The former California State University Northridge forward was outstanding for the Tall Ferns last month during their gold medal winning campaign at the William Jones Cup.

NZ advance to quarter-finals at FIBA U18 Asia Championship

haka

New Zealand made it through the Round of Sixteen at the FIBA U18 Asian Championship in Thailand on Wednesday beating India 109-76.

It took the Kiwis a while to get going as they only led by ten at half-time (52-42) but a 32-16 third quarter did the trick.

Oscar Oswald (17 points) was the main source of points for New Zealand in the early stages half with James Moors (20 points) finding his scoring touch in the second.

Matt O’Connell (15 points) put some icing on the win in the closing stages.

New Zealand will now face Iran in the critical quarter-final tie on Thursday. The winner obviously advances to the semi-finals but more importantly secures a place at the 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup next year.

The major concern for the Kiwis was a knee injury suffered by Max Darling who was sidelined in the first half and remained on ice in the second.

Westlake beat St Kent’s and Rangitoto too strong for Avondale

IMG_1225

Westlake Boys put themselves in the box seat to claim the remaining Auckland Secondary Schools Premier Grade semi-final place with a 100-84 home victory against St Kentigern College on Monday night.

Westlake’s victory was built around their ability to make perimeter shots. They set the tone for a fine shooting display by making six straight threes to open their scoring and in all made a mesmerizing 17 shots from beyond the arc.

Tom Cowie, Josh Kooiman and Dylan Wilkie combined for those first 18 points from deep as the hosts grabbed a 32-20 quarter time lead – 8 points for Shalom Broughton for the visitors.

Tom Chester, Alex McNaught and Zac Chan demonstrated that they could also score from deep but Kooiman knocked down his third treble of the second period to extend the Westlake advantage to 51-33.

Kooiman was forced to the bench after logging his third foul but it did little to slow the Lake scoring momentum, more threes from Wilkie, an And-1 play from Joe Wuthrich and a floater from Cowie sent the hosts into a decisive 63-37 half-time lead.

Broughton in transition, Levic Kerr in the low post and the slashing Alex Shorter edged St Kent’s a little closer in the third stanza but they were still in a big hole at the three-quarter mark trailing 83-57.

Shorter and Chan combined for thirteen straight points and at 87-67 with 6:30 to play Lake coach Zac Fitzgerald needed a timeout.

Cowie and Wilkie responded immediately – from the three point line of course – this time it was St Kent’s coach Aaron Young that needed a timeout.

The ever improving Kerr made a couple of neat inside baskets but Cowie and the outstanding Wilkie who made a season best 29 points, including seven triples, put the result beyond doubt.

St Kentigern look as if they will now have to defeat both Avondale College (on Wednesday) and Rosmini College (on Friday) in their remaining two games to pip Westlake for the fourth play-off spot.

Westlake now prepare for a North Shore derby against Rangitoto.

Westlake 100 – D Wilkie 29, T Cowie 18, P Winitana 17, J Kooiman 15, J Wuthrich 11

St Kentigern 84 – M Shorter 29, S Broughton 18, L Kerr 18, Z Chan 9

 

After the excitement of their victory against Westlake on Friday, Avondale College were brought crashing back to earth at Rangitoto College beaten 112-68.

Games aren’t won in the first quarter but trailing 34-11 at the first break meant Avondale had a lot to do to redress the balance after Harry Payne had dropped 19 points in those first ten minutes.

Rangitoto continued the charge in the second period with Obadaiah Paea joining Payne in double figures as they established a 57-30 half-time lead. Jaga Mete led the Avondale effort with ten points at the break.

Ethan Mandeno and Ben Spencer-Powell got in on the scoring act in the third period as the lead ballooned out to 82-49.

Michael Reddy and Jack Childs gave the Avondale score a degree of respectability in the final quarter but Rangitoto cruised to their third win of the season ahead of their trip to Westlake on Friday.

The defeat means that Avondale will have to win their final two games to have any chance of avoiding finishing the season with the wooden spoon.

Rangitoto 112 – H Payne 33, O Paea 22, E Skelton 17, E Mandeno 16, T Te Puni 13
