Taranaki Mountain Airs claim big win over Malaysian men's basketball team - Jul 29, 2017

The National Basketball League season might be well behind them, but the Taranaki Mountain Airs showed they were still locked in with a 104-81 win over Malaysia. As part of the Malaysian men's team's tour of New Zealand, the Augusta Mountain Airs hosted the Malaysian side at New Plymouth's YMCA. With imports and a few key players unavailable, locals had the chance to get meaningful minutes on the floor for the home side. Big man Xavier Shaw (203-F-94, college: MSU-Northern) made sure not to squander his, shooting an efficient 10/13 from the floor on his way to 26 points and 11 rebounds in 37 minutes. Shaw had his fingerprints on the game from the outset, scoring the opening basket of the match. He and point guard Houston O'Riley (180-PG-89) were on the money early on to give the home side a lead. Coming into their third match in as many nights, Malaysia showed signs of fatigue, which the Mountain Airs capitalised on and pushed the tempo whenever possible. While Malaysia looked to do most of their work from beyond the three-point arc, the Mountain Airs took what was available to them as they built a 31-22 lead after the first quarter. The second period started as the first had ended with the Airs running the show. However, Malaysia were beginning to get their feet under them and put some points up. But with Taranaki dominating on the glass, second chance points were rare. Malaysia found themselves in early foul trouble, with the Mountain Airs in the bonus midway through the period. The home side took advantage of this and worked toward a 51-38 half time lead. That lead jumped out to as many as 28 in the second half of the game as Malaysia had no answer for the speed of the home side's play. In the end, the Mountain airs proved to be too much for the visitors as they cruised to a 23-point win, although Perry Lim was again impressive for the visitors. The scoreline allowed Mountain Airs coach Trent Adam to give young duo Oscar Robertson (197-F-00) and Matthew O'Connell (184-PG-00) some time on the floor. O'Connell was particularly good on the defensive end in his 12 minutes as he made the most of his quickness across the court to stay with and in front of his man. Malaysia will now head to Tauranga for the final game of their tour, with a match on Saturday against a HoopNation select squad featuring Webster brothers Corey and Tai - fresh off their stints in the NBA Summer League - and Isaac Fotu, who has just signed on with German heavyweights Ulm.
