Singapore Slingers vs Darwin All-Stars

15 Jan

Carrying on their Singapore Challenge Series, the Slingers’ next opponent were the Darwin All-Stars. Evenly matched, this produced a very interesting match which see-sawed through the first 3 quarters, with the Slingers just edging forward bit by bit through each. It was only in the final quarter that the Slingers produced a big breakthrough and thus seeing them to the victory 91-65.

Shane Macdonald commanding his team. Shane has left the Slingers to go back to competitive basketball in the NBL.

Darren Ng with the lay-up. Darren’s the consistent scorer, showing he can drive in as well as he can shoot. He finished top-scorer with 33 points for the night.

Darren has also left the Slingers, to pursue a career as a doctor.

Having missed the last match on the 4th of Jan, I will be looking forward to seeing them play popular Phillipine team, Barangay Ginebra on the 17th @ 7.40pm Indoor Stadium. So hope to see you there!
