A quick contribution to Kontinentals’ win

Gordon Quick netted 13

Gordon Quick did his surname justice, netting 13 of Kontinentals’ 39 points as the multi-national team faced off against Xiōngdì nǐ tàikuāle (兄弟你太誇了) in their first competition match of the 18th APAL on Sunday.

Quick used his speed and sharp reflexes to net 6 field goals, in addition to converting one free throw.

Tambi “The Impala” Mutharika followed closely in Gordon’s footsteps, adding 11 point to the team’s tally.

He banked 3 three-point shot and one field-goal, in addition to three steals before an ankle injury forced him to retire during the fourth quarter.

The attack on Xiōngdì nǐ tàikuāle was ably supported by some tough defence, with Jamali Jack, Warren Miller and Jon Hornblower each grabbing 8 rebounds. Miller and Jack each also had 2 steals with Jack providing 3 assists and Miller one.

Kontinentals victory came in the wake of a series of errors, resulting in a total of 22 turnovers, two less than their competitors.

In the face of Kontinentals’ blunders, Xiōngdì nǐ tàikuāle, which, translated literally into English, means “Brothers, you overestimate us”, proved to be a formidable opponent.

“The Impala” ran away with 3 three-pointers.

At the end of the first quarter, Kontinentals had a two-point lead, with 12 points on the scoreboard.

Xiōngdì nǐ tàikuāle was just one point down at the end of the second quarter, 18-19, and pulled ahead during the third quarter, 26-24.

Thirteen points in the final quarter, compared to their opponent’s 8, sealed the victory for Kontinentals.

The team plays it next match on March 28 at 7:10 p.m. against Miou Miou.
