Saints Drop First Game of the Season 08 May 2013

Thanks to 37 points from point guard Chris Hagan, the Telecom Business Hub Jets have put on a great performance, upsetting the Wellington Saints 112-96 at TSB Bank Arena.

Three days ago, the Jets were blown out by 30 points at home by Wellington, but tonight was a very different story, as they overcame a two-point halftime deficit to outscore the home side 67-49 over the final 20 minutes.

Hagan did it all, as the Saints could not contain the lightening quick guard, who also added seven assists and four steals to his points tally.

Rebounding was an issue for the Jets last game, but not tonight, as they won the battle on the boards 46-41. Centre Nick Horvath was the catalyst, grabbing 24 rebounds to go with his 17 points.

Manawatu welcomed back forward Jeremiah Trueman, who had 12 points, while it was also a pleasant homecoming for Troy McLean who had 13 against his former side.

Saints' unbeaten run of five games finally came to an end and they will be extremely disappointed with their flat effort.

Casey Frank led the Saints with 24 points and 12 rebounds, while import Andrew Warren added 23.

The big concern will be guard Corey Webster, who is fighting an ankle injury, limited to only 18 minutes for two points.

Saints will travel to play the Fico Finance Nelson Giants this Saturday in a tough game, for which they may be without Webster, Mike Homik and Damien Ekenasio.

Jets will now travel back home., before they go up to New Plymouth to face The Good Home Taranaki Mountain Airs, which will be a big game for both sides on Saturday.
