Melbourne take down Wisconsin on the buzzer at Casey - Aug 21, 2017

Tai Wesley
Melbourne United have made it two wins from two against US college teams to kick-off their 2017 pre-season. After defeating the Texas Longhorns in Nunawading on Wednesday night, United were made to work extremely hard for their win over the Wisconsin Badgers last night in Casey. In a hotly contested match-up, both team's depth was on full display as five players scored in double figures for Melbourne and four for Wisconsin. Tai Wesley (201-F-86, college: Utah St., agency: MKP Management) was the man who, when buckets were needed, stood up for United. Leading all scorers, Wesley finished with 23 points, including 3/5 from three-point land. Chris Goulding (192-G-88) (15 points), Damon Bozeman (190-G) (13 points), Majok Majok (206-F-92, college: Ball St.) (12 points) and Jerry Evans (203-F-90, college: Nevada) (12 points) all ensured the scoreboard kept ticking over.

After the game, Wesley talked about how he's enjoying playing games against the high quality competition that Texas and Wisconsin are. 'I'm happy we got wins, especially tonight.' Wesley said. 'I'm glad to have games at this stage instead of just practice - practice kind of gets old and boring and monotonous - it's just good to be out playing and having fun.' 'This is what we do; we live to play games and not just practice, so it's good.' Wisconsin caught fire from beyond the arc, and used a 32-point third quarter to take a 72-65 lead into the fourth quarter. With Wisconsin holding onto a 4-point lead with 55 seconds remaining, a Majok Majok bucket, followed by a Wisconsin turnover gave United the ball trailing by 2 points with 15 seconds remaining. A Chris Goulding drive to the basket always draws the attention of the defence, and this time was no different. As Goulding drove into the paint, the Wisconsin defence followed and left shooters open on the wings. Goulding was able to find a wide-open Jerry Evans who did the rest. A triple with 2.7 seconds left on the clock gave United their first lead of the quarter and sent the Casey crowd into a frenzy. Wisconsin missed a last second triple to win the game, as United took the win 90-89. Evans, who starred against Texas, once again proved his worth and has made the most of his call-up from SEABL. Wesley loved what he saw from his new teammates. 'I was pretty impressed with the SEABL guys - how they handled the pressure in a tight game. I thought [Peter] Hooley and [Sam] Smart played well too.' Wesley said. There is no doubt that the Badgers provided a different match-up to that of the Longhorns, and Wesley was impressed with what they brought to the table. 'It was a different game than Texas - we had to come back and they were tough, so it was fun.' Wesley said. 'I was impressed with Wisconsin; they're very disciplined, they have very good post play and their guards shoot it really well. We tried to stop one thing and another thing got hot - it was hard.' Speaking of guards who shot it well, D'Mitrik Trice (180-G) and Kobe King (190-SF-98) did just that for Wisconsin. Trice and King combined for 35 points on 12/19 shooting. D'Mitrik, brother of current Brisbane Bullet Travis Trice (183-PG-93, college: Michigan St.), led the Badgers in scoring and showed just how dangerous he will be for the Badgers in their upcoming season. Draining 4/6 from beyond the arc for 19 points, whilst adding 5 rebounds and 4 assists, Trice proved difficult to stop all game. Wisconsin big man Ethan Happ (206-F-96) also impressed with 16 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists - doing no damage to his 2018 NBA Draft stock. It should come as no surprise that Wesley's pre-season has started with a bang. An off-season in which he represented Guam has seen him return to Melbourne in great shape. Talking about his time with the Guam national team, Wesley highlights how it has him well prepared for the upcoming NBL season. 'I got to spend time playing on the Guam national team; we went to the Philippines and then played a tournament in Guam. Any time you can represent your country, it's a good experience.' Wesley said. 'I think the best thing about it as far as a Melbourne United standpoint is that I didn't stop playing. I wasn't sitting on the couch eating potato chips - I was actually playing and that helps.' Next up on Melbourne United's pre-season schedule is the NBL Blitz in the Latrobe Valley in early September.
