Saints too strong for the Hawks

By Aroha Treacher

The Wellington Saints have proved once again why they're the toughest team to beat in the NZ basketball league.

Stamping their authority early on, the Saints were at their dangerous best with point guard Corey Webster on his game.

While the Hawks displayed heart the Saints were just relentless in their defence. Crucial rebounds picked up by Davis, 17 in all, the highest of any player.

With The Saints dominating the entire game, by the fourth, the Saints had ran away with it.

Despite putting everything on the line, in the end the Saints were just too skilled, showing why this is now their eighth National title.

With an almost sell-out crowd playing in their home town, it was the ideal finish for the 2014 champions.
