Saints Remain Unbeaten 06 Apr 2017

The Wellington Saints have moved to 5-0 with a 100-87 win over the Taranaki Mountainairs.

Corey Webster again led the way with 31 points in three quarters for the Saints who won the third quarter 33-17 which allowed head coach Kevin Braswell to rest his starters in the fourth quarter.

Taranaki showed fight in the fourth quarter to win it 35-22, but in the end trying to come back from a 26-point deficit would be too much for the home side who drop to 3-3 for the season.

Josh Duinker grabbed a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds, Leon Henry scored 14 and point guard Shea Ili dished out 10 assists without taking a field goal attempt.

Alonzo Burton continued his solid season with the Airs tallying 24 points on 7-11 shooting, Tylor Ongwae scored 18 and Aaron Bailey-Nowell nearly grabbed a double-double of nine points and 10 rebounds.

Taranaki kept with the Saints through the first quarter and only trailed 36-34 midway through the second, but back to back threes from Jordan Mills, a free throw from Henry and then a two pointer from Webster pushed their lead to 10 at halftime. By that time, Webster had already accumulated 22 points.

Wellington got out running to start the third quarter and Duinker was the benefactor scoring 10 straight points put the Saints up 20. Back to back three’s from Henry followed by another scoring spree from Webster pushed the lead high enough that the starters could all play under thirty minutes and get much needed rest before they return home to host the Canterbury Rams (3-2) on Saturday night.

Saturday night will also feature another great match up when the SIT Zerofees Sharks (2-2) host the James Blond Supercity Rangers (3-1).

Thursday, April 6

At TSB Stadium, New Plymouth

Taranaki Mountainairs 87 (Alonzo Burton 24, Tylor Ongwae 18, Houston O’Riley 12)
