Rangitoto College Boys cruised to a second Auckland Secondary Schools Premier Basketball victory dominating St Kentigern College to win 111-35, the game as one sided as the score line suggests.
Rangitoto College coach Kenny Stone had the luxury of beginning the game with both Yuat Alok and Tai Wynyard on the bench. Stone’s starters didn’t let him down opening up an 8-0 lead before St Kent’s guard Harrison Williams responded with a triple.
The lead was a massive 39-9 by quarter time and although Colin Driscoll’s charges did improve in the second quarter the margin was still 61-21 at the main break. St Kent’s fortunes were not helped when Asher Pettit-Edbrooke fouled out before half time.
Point guard Josiah Williams and forward Sam Waardenburg both had 10 points in the opening half.
The second half continued to be one-way traffic. The only interruption to Rangi’s progress came when an alley-oop dunk by Wynyard almost broke the hoop. The game was held up while Wynyard straightened the ring – a cover over it would have been St Kent’s only hope.
Rangitoto College 111 – Wynyard 23, Waardenburg 22, Alok 18, Brayden Inger 12.
St Kentigern College 35 – 11 Joel Vaiangina, 9 Jimmy Barrett
