We just finished the game against Satria from Indonesia and it was a bit of a blow out 75-46 in our favour. We started the game off with a 10-0 run, Eric Sandrin scoring eight of those points. From there, Satria put up a good fight in the second quarter to be within 7 at half time. But we kicked it up a gear in the third quarter and quickly blew out the lead.
In my opinion, I don’t think Satria were up to the standard that we are at. Perhaps with a couple of imports they would have been more competitive, but we seemed to be able to control the game when we wanted to. Eric was able to dominate, finishing with 14 pts, Shane McDonald had some good outside shooting in the third quarter to finish with 13 pts.
I had a nice pass to Eric for an alley-oop to start the second quarter, if anyone has video, please post it.
The crowd was fairly good, probably ~2000-3000, a little slow to arrive, most people coming close to tip-off. There were also some Indonesian supporters in the crowd wearing Satria singlets, so that was good to see.
There’s a little bit of a break now til the next game on the 16th Dec against Darwin all-stars. They are the same team that we played in the Brunei tournament and won by one point both times. Hopefully it is a good contest.
