This week we played current ladder leaders and D grade powerhouse Bruins in a tight match that saw Mighty Kites lose with a scoreline of 20 to 41.
The game was tough having two of our stronger players out; Nima to a rolled ankle sustained in last weeks game and WuDan, however we did import Gareth who played a very strong game with plenty of rebounds, a fairly big block and almost an alley-oop.
It didn’t help either that the 2 referees seemed to call fouls on us, but not on the other team, but when the calls were made, they seemed to kick up a stink and complain. All up the game was very hard and physical, I was on the ground at least 3 times.
If I get around to training this week, I should work on my outside shooting. If I can I’d like to be able to try shooting off a cut and pass, so as I cut through the key and end up on the outside for a shot, I can just catch and release….
Next week sees us up against And Far Away who sit at the bottom of the table at 10:15pm. It should be an enjoyable match and hopefully we don’t get too cocky in our play.
