Gold and Bronze For NSW Country at 2014 U16 AJC
The Championship game in the men’s division saw the defending champion NSW Country squad take on an undefeated VIC Metro squad in what proved to be a thrilling matchup.
Throughout the 1st quarter it was an extremely tight affair, both teams relentlessly attacking the paint. The 2 squads traded buckets with NSW Country taking the early 15-12 lead heading into the first break.
NSW Country then used the next 2 quarters to extend their lead. A run led by Jessy Wilson and Kyle Zunic, who began to heat up from 3-point range, extended the NSW Country lead to a 54-36 lead heading into the 4th quarter – a comeback from VIC Metro seeming improbable. Patrick Bines and Mitchell Barry led an early 4th quarter surge by VIC Metro to cut the lead down to 7 but NSW Country never let it get closer than that, hitting their free throws to seal the game – 82-62 being the final score. Lachlan Dent finished with a game-high 19pts for NSW Country while Kyle Zunic had 18pts & 5rbs. For VIC Metro, Patrick Bines had a team-high 13pts & 8rbs.
