Sharks were defeated by Rams in a tough game in Christchurch 71-79. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Sharks won third quarter 20-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American guard McKenzie Moore (198-92, college: UTEP, agency: Two Points) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 25 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Naturalized American forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St., agency: PEPI SPORT) contributed with 16 points for the winners.
