The Regular Season in NBL just started.

Rangers defeated Rams in Auckland 114-107. Rams trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 37-28 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 107-114 at the end of the game. Rangers made 30-of-39 free shots (76.9 percent) during the game, while Rams only scored three points from the stripe. 30 personal fouls committed by Rams helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Australian guard Mitchell McCarron (191-92, college: Metro St.) fired 28 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. The former international guard Lindsay Tait (190-82) chipped in 29 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Jeremy Kendle (186-88, college: Bellarmine) produced a double-double by scoring 39 points (!!!), 10 rebounds and 5 assists for lost side. Rams' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Rams will play next round against Giants trying to get back on the winning streak. Rangers will try to continue on its current victory against Mountain Airs in New Plymouth.
Another exciting game was played in Tamatea between Rams and Hawks where Rams (1-1) beat Hawks (0-2) on the road 99-87. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized American forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 10 rebounds. Jeremy Kendle contributed with 31 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. International guard Everard Bartlett (193-86) answered with 23 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals for Hawks. Rams will play against Giants (#6) in Stoke in the next round. Hawks will play at home against Mountain Airs to get more than just one victory in their record.
The game in Stoke was also quite interesting. Mountain Airs (1-0) played at the court of Giants (0-2). Mountain Airs did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 93-76 on Saturday. Tylor Ongwae stepped up and scored 28 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. At the losing side Finn Delany responded with 26 points and 4 assists. Mountain Airs will meet Hawks (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Giants will play against Rams and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Southland. Local Sharks (1-0) outscored Giants (0-2) 96-58. Alex Pledger nailed 19 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side. Sharks' coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Sharks' next round opponent will be Saints (#4) in Wellington. Giants will play at home against Rams and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 1 winless Taylor Hawks lost to undefeated Wellington S. in a road game 84-107.
