Quarter 2: Platanos 16 - 2 Pimlico

The year 7 boys continued their form in the JR NBA season in their first game back after the Christmas break. However showed that they had been practicing individually over the past 3 weeks in their own time.

To begin with, the boys done a great job at pressuring the ball and getting out on the break for some easy lay ups. However, Platanos must remember when arriving in a defensive position as their defender catches the ball, they can not be too close as this will result in blow bys at a higher level. Platanos players also need to make more of a conscious effort to get eyes to the basket as they receive the ball on offense as this will make them more of a threat offensively, in comparison to having their back to the basket.
