THE Mansfield under 16 basketball team had two great tournaments during the fourth quarter of 2014.
First they showed what team work was all about at a tournament in Wangaratta.
The first match against the aptly named Deniliquin Giants saw the boys go down, but they then demonstrated winning form in the next three games against Castlemaine, Echuca and Wodonga.
In the second tournament, the under 16 team took out the honors at the Shepparton Basketball Tournament.
Again in the first match the boys were up against some “man children”, this time from Kerang and they had to leap for every possession to see the final result a draw.
The team then won games against Tatura, Mildura and Deniliquin.
This was followed by an anxious wait to see if the team had made the final.
