Nov 13:  Trinity College has collected its second state basketball title in as many days, clinching a thrilling three point victory over Concordia College in the final of the Year 10 Knockout today.

In 38 degree temperatures, Trinity found its toughest matchup of the day in the last game.  After an even first quarter, Concordia claimed a slight edge at the half, which it increased to five at the last break.  In a frantic final quarter, some pin-point perimeter shooting from Koen Sapwell (NOR10), and desperate offensive put-backs by Biar Garang (SOU9) and Brent Hank (SOU10) edged Trinity past their opponents with less than a minute to play.  A transition three-pointer by Concordia cut the lead to one point, and a quick reply from Sapwell rimmed out, giving Concordia the ball with 40 seconds left and a chance to take the title.  After a succession of quick Trinity fouls, Concordia put up a shot, which missed, and fell into the sure hands of Hank, who was immediately fouled.  He calmly slotted the two free throws and Trinity's lead was three.  With seconds sliding away from Concordia, a last-second three-pointer was short, and Trinity clung on for its first-ever Year 10 title.

Trinity completed the day as its only undefeated team, after inching past a plucky Cabra Domincan in game one, and then routing Henley High and Blackwood High, who simply had no answer for Trinity's size inside, with Hank, Garang and Chevy Spurr (NOR10).  When Trinity's bigs weren't dominating, Brodie Nathan (SOU10) was putting on a long-range exhibition and Ray Harding (SOU10) was having an impact at both ends of the court.

In such heat, the final was always going to be decided by whoever was the freshest.  Trinity had the luxury of resting many of its starters, secure in the knowledge that the 'GR Crew' of Josh Ravesteyn (GAW10), David Hogan (GAW10), Brandon Klar (GAW10) and Nathan Drewett (GAW10) were able to come in and keep the lead ticking over, with excellent hustle on the boards and pin-point passing.

Congratulations to the boys, who add to the Year 8/9 state title won yesterday, and solidify Trinity College as a legitimate power in South Australian school basketball.
