NZ Select beat Shenzhen Leopards - Jun 30, 2017

Yanni
Wetzell
New Zealand Select proved too good for Shenzhen Leopards in the penultimate fixture of its six game tour of China on Thursday night winning 92-71. The win was based around dominating displays by forwards James Hunter (208-C-92, college: S.Dakota), Finn Delany (198-F-95, college: SW Baptist), Yanni Wetzell (208-F) and Sam Timmins (211-C-97). Wetzell led all scorers with 22 points (10/14FG) and completed an outstanding stats line with 10 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal. Shenzhen finished sixth on the Chinese Basketball Association League standings last season and gave the Kiwis some problems in the early stages leading 21-19 at quarter time although seven turnovers from the visitors didn't help their cause. However New Zealand, led by 11 points in the half from the consistent Hunter and 8 points off the bench from Delany, began to assert some authority in the second period and carved out a 44-37 lead by half-time. Coach Mike Fitchett was delighted with the performance of his charges after the interval. 'The second half was a great team performance. Yanni scored the ball well and along with James Hunter we really controlled the inside winning the rebound count by thirty (53-23).' As anticipated NZ Select were without Derone Raukawa after he picked up an ankle injury late in the game the previous evening against Montenegro. His absence gave an opportunity for others to step into the point guard role. 'Joe Cook-Green (6 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists) and Jordan Ngatai did a good job manning the point and Alonzo Burton (193-G-93) gave us great defence in the second half shutting down their import guard,' said Fitchett. Guard Luke Aston also had a productive game scoring 11 points off the bench including three triples. NZ Select face Cameroon in the tournament decider later today, tip-off 11pm (NZ time), in the final game of the tour.
