Jarrod Kenny
The game with biggest difference of round 7 in NBL was guest Hawks' (#7) road victory over 4th placed Rangers (4-4) 101-95 on Friday evening. The game without a history. Hawks led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. The former international guard Jarrod Kenny (188-85) fired 18 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. American center Amir Williams (211-92, college: Ohio St.) chipped in 18 points and 8 rebounds (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!). Australian guard Mitchell McCarron (191-92, college: Metro St.) produced 31 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for lost side. Hawks maintains seventh place with 2-6 record. Rangers at the other side keep the fourth position with four games lost. Hawks are looking forward to face higher ranked Giants (#6) in Stoke in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Rangers will play on the road against the league's leader Saints having rather not much hope for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Giants managed to get a third victory, breaking the series of two consecutive losses. This time they outleveled fifth-ranked Mountain Airs in Stoke 107-81. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 26-point difference suggests that Giants is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. Worth to mention a great performance of swingman Sam Dempster (192-90) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Finn Delany contributed with 19 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Kenyan forward Tylor Ongwae (199-91, college: La-Monroe) answered with 19 points for Mountain Airs. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Giants (3-8) moved-up to sixth place. Mountain Airs lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the fifth position with seven games lost. Giants will play against bottom-ranked Hawks (#7) in Tamatea in the next round. Mountain Airs will play at home against Rams and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Undefeated leader Saints delivered the tenth consecutive victory on Tuesday night. This time they crushed 7th ranked Giants (3-8) 110-84 in Wellington. It was a great evening for Shea Ili who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 27 points, 10 assists and 6 steals (made all of his eight free throws). Saints' coach felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Kyle Adnam responded with 25 points and 7 assists. Undefeated Saints (10-0) have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with a perfect record of 10 victories in a row. Loser Giants dropped to the sixth position with eight games lost. Saints will meet at home Rangers (#4) in the next round. Giants will play against Hawks in Tamatea and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Tamatea was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Rams (5-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Hawks (2-6). Rams did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 106-89. It was an exceptional evening for Marcel Jones who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 39 points (!!!), 10 rebounds and 5 assists (on 16-of-21 shooting from the field). Rams moved-up to third place. Hawks at the other side stay at the bottom position with six games lost. Rams' next round opponent will be Mountain Airs (#5) in New Plymouth. Hawks will play at home against Giants and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Southland. Local Sharks (6-3) outscored 5th ranked Mountain Airs (3-7) 97-67 on Friday night. Reuben Te-Rangi fired 21 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the third consecutive win for Sharks. They maintain second place with 6-3 record having five points less than leader Wellington S. Mountain Airs lost their sixth game in a row. They keep the fifth position with seven games lost. Sharks will face Rams (#3) in Christchurch in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Mountain Airs will play at home against Rams and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
