Wellington Saints go unfeated in Pre-season tourny 25 Mar 2015

The Wellington Saints had tough wins over Nelson and Southland but were able to defeat last year's finalists Hawks by a nice margin to end the P-Town Pre-season Tourny 3-0.

Pero Cameron had the opportunity to play most of his squad last weekend in Porirua, and was impressed in particular with new arrival Torrey Craig who seemed to slash to the hoop at ease and finish with some authorative dunks.

The former Cairns Taipan also was effective on the defensive end with his athletism and timing which led to a few blocks.

Veterans Lindsay Tait, Leon Henry, Damien Ekenasio and Brendon Polyblank also played during the weekend and had their moments too.

Younger team members Dion Prewster, Jordan Mills and Izayah Mauriohoo-Leafa also contributed to the Saints cause, which has a more local element to their roster than previous years.

The Saints will travel down to Blenheim this Saturday to play their final Pre-season game against the Nelson Giants.

The 2015 NZNBL season will begin for the eight time defending champs on Thursday April 2nd on the road against the Taranaki Mountain Airs, before our first home game against the Canterbury Rams on Easter Monday.
