Tough Loss To Start The Southern Swing

In a hard-fought battle on the road last night, the Mills Albert Wellington Saints faced off against the Night n' Day Otago Nuggets in a thrilling Sal's National Basketball League matchup. Despite a valiant effort, the Saints ultimately fell short, with the Nuggets securing a 105-98 victory.

Top performers for the Nuggets included Ben Henshall, who led the scoring with an impressive 29 points, including 5 three-pointers, followed closely by Zaccheus Darko-Kelly with 27 points, and Kimani Lawrence with 24 points. On the other side, Tohi Smith-Milner showcased his dominance with a stellar performance, contributing 30 points and 12 rebounds for the Saints, while Hyrum Harris chipped in with 16 points, 17 rebounds, and 7 assists.

While last night's result may not have gone our way, the Saints remain optimistic and focused on the road ahead. Tomorrow presents another opportunity for redemption as we prepare to face off against the Southland Sharks. With resilience and determination, we look forward to bouncing back stronger than ever.
