Hoop Dreams Realised For Flints And Shead Nicho
The Forbes Basketball Association grand finals have been played with Shead and Nicho coming from behind to beat Howies in the Women’s and make it back-to-back titles. In what can only be described as a sterling team effort, the girls had to claw from a handy deficit to take down their arch-rivals.
In the Men’s, Flint Tropics grounded out a tough victory over defending champs Misfits in a low scoring affair dominated by defence. Led by Justin Hoy, Flint Tropics made the plays that mattered when they mattered and the defending champs had no answers. Not only did Flint Tropics take the crown but they did so without dropping a game all season – well done!
