Bandits win South SEABL Conference Final!
Bandits win South SEABL Conference Final!hat a night for Bandits fans! A capacity crowd at the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre watched anxiously as the Bandits started out of the blocks slowly, struggling to make an early shot, and at the 6-minute mark of the first quarter they were looking down the barrel with the scores at 16-4. The Bandits kept working hard and a Jazz Ferguson 3 pointer on the buzzer saw Knox’s lead narrowed to just 3, with the scores sitting at 23-20 at the first break.
The Bandits started to find their rhythm early in the second quarter and at the 5-minute mark, they hit the lead with a 2-point shot from Momo, a lead which they never surrendered. Up at the long break by 4 pts, Momo had already stamped his mark on the game sending a clear message to Raiders big man Lester Strong that he meant business.
Ex Bandit Mick Hill battled gallantly all game leading Knox’s scorers with 26 pts and 3 rebs. A great defensive effort by the Bandits saw the Knox import duo held to 18 pts between them. A sensational game by Momo Ntumba with 22 pts and a massive 17 rebs, Jazz with 23 pts, 7 reb 4 assists and Captain Nick Payne, with 15 pts 10 reb saw the Bandits eventual winners 77-69.
The Bandits now play the Dandenong Rangers in the National Final at the State Basketball Centre in Melbourne looking to go one better than 2001 for the title of national champions. Nick Payne now becomes one of the most decorated players in the League having won 2 championships with Knox Raiders and 2 with the Bandits.
