Reshuffle for Allstars round

Two even teams went at it in the Allstars round last Thursday evening.

IN the opening game of the night, past Mareeba basketball president, Mark Wuth, turned back the clock to bang down a barrage of three pointers as Steve Hogan got his share of put backs. 

Young Stanley (The Mustard) Bustard strutted into the stadium for the close of the first half looking miffed that he had not been selected for the main event. 

To make his feelings known he still managed to bag 17 points in the second half. What could have been for ‘The Mustard’ if only the Herberton Express was running to schedule.

The Allstars Game had notable omissions in Thomson, Farley and Washington, but the contest lived up to the hype, 74 to 70 Green over Turtles (Black).

For Green, the efforts were shared and well coached by Tyson Tatti. The score sheet reflected Zayd Myrteza as their second highest scorer indicative of some clever accounting by Steve Hogan and Sep Aloia.

For the losing team, Ryan Mawdsley bagged 22 points including a mammoth half-time buzzer beater from the door mat of the score bench at the midcourt.

Ricaydan Wason chipped in for 20 points with seemingly endless time going to the hoop but to be fair he was a little off from outside.
