Saints made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by Giants helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

The best for the losing side was American center Ben Strong (211-86, college: Guilford, agency: Interperformances) with 18 points and 8 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Saints (13-5) keep a position of league leader, which they share with Canterbury. Giants at the other side keep the fourth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Waitakere SCR.

The winners were led by Australian power forward Nicholas Kay (206-92, college: Metro St.) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 18 points and 14 rebounds and Mitch Norton supported him with 21 points and 9 assists. Even 32 points and 4 steals by the former international guard Corey Webster (188-88, college: Lambuth) did not help to save the game for Rangers. Defending champion maintains third position with 11-7 record having just two points less than leader Canterbury. Rangers lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with nine games lost.

Very significant was Rams' (#1, 13-5) victory against 4th ranked Rangers (9-9) 116-98.

They keep the fourth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Nelson G..
Second ranked Saints blasted bottom-ranked Hawks (0-18) in Wellington 120-72. Hawks is still unable to win any game. It was a good game for Dion Prewster who led his team to a victory with 40 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds.

Saints (13-5) keep a position of league leader, which they share with Canterbury. Hawks at the other side still closes the standings.
Bottom-ranked Hawks (0-18) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 18th consecutive match to sixth ranked Mountain Airs (8-10) 91-67 on Saturday evening.
