Cigna Saints get home crowd 100 points and Hell Pizza 26 May 2018

The Cigna Saints have had to hold off a valiant Go Media Jets 109-101. Shea Ili was the leading scorer for the defending champions with 31 points, also adding nine assists. Centre, Majok Majok, had a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds, and LJ Peak added 14 for the Saints who move to 4-1.

Kuran Iverson top scored for the Jets with 25, and after suffering a nasty head knock at the beginning of the game, Brandon Lucas, bounced back with 22 points. Point guard, Daishon Knight, scored 22 for the visitors who suffered their third straight single digit defeat.

The Jets came out firing early, leading by as many as 11 in the second quarter, but Wellington would finish strong to take a two point lead at halftime. After the break the home side would push their lead up to 14 in the early part of the fourth quarter. The Jets would get within six points with two minutes to play. 

A three from Jordan Ngatai, followed by a dunk from Majok, extended lead back up to 11 which was enough to secure the win. Again, it was another scratchy performance from the Kevin Braswell coached side, and they will have to move up a notch on Sunday when they host the Taylor Hawks who will be ready to go after suffering a 30 point loss to the Sharks the week before.
