In the round robin, the St Edward’s College squad defeated teams from MacKillop Catholic College, St Leo’s Catholic College, St Paul’s Catholic College, Mater Maria Catholic College, St Brigid’s Catholic College and St Peter’s Catholic College. In the grand final, the boys started out a bit slow but blitzed Mater Maria Catholic College in the second half, winning with a score of 42-23.
Throughout the tournament, St Edward’s boys averaged 35 points a game, allowing only 18 points against them per game.
Oscar McMahon, Austin Romain and Max English led the team with their scoring. Aden Tillot, Joel Washington and Fletcher Bush played great defence and were tasked with keeping the opposition in check. Jonah Bromfield, Ike Diffin and Rasmus Borg dominated the defensive boards. Nate Frohmuller, Joshua Fenton and Joshua Winter provided offensive assists and showed great all-around hustle each game.
With their win at the BBSSSA tournament, the St Edward’s Junior Basketball team will next compete in the NSWCCC finals at Bankstown Basketball Stadium in Term 4.
