Making Their Mark

The MMC Junior A boys basketball team took to the main court at ASB Arena last Saturday night in the curtain raiser game for the Malaysia vs HoopNation NZ Select final game - versing Tauranga Intermediate Huskies team. The MMC Junior A boys came away with a comfortable win 54-27. Rico Nelson was lead points scorer on the night with 14 points with Tarras Rall close behind with 10 points.
Our own Mount Maunganui College student, Shalom Broughton then went on to join the Hoopnation Select Mens Team as they versed the Malaysian team. Shalom played alongside some of the best basketballers NZ has to offer with team members such as Corey Webster, Tai Webster, Mika Vukona, Dillon Boucher and Isaac Fotu. The crowd knew they were in for a real treat, and they were not let down. Shalom got a good amount of game time and and held his own, aiding the team in a substantial win.
