Giants made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was Australian guard Damon Heuir (189-91, college: S.Utah) who scored 30 points. The former international power forward Tohi Smith-Milner (206-95, college: Polk State CC) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds. Giants' coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was Sudanese-Australian forward Majok Majok (206-92, college: Ball St.) who recorded 16 points and 9 rebounds. Giants have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 13-3 record behind leader Wellington S. Defending champion Saints still keep top place with three games lost.
