U14 QUESS Boys Basketball Tournament
The U14 Boys' Basketball Team had a very difficult start to the QUESS Basketball tournament against a very physical Newton International Academy (NIA) side. Although NAISAK scored the first basket of the game, cheap turnover of possession allowed far too many fast-break opportunities for NIA, resulting in a loss for NAISAK 2-16.
In the second game of the tournament, NAISAK went up against Doha College who were very impressive in their first game. The boys took on the feedback from the first game, and with a change of defensive strategy, they provided DC with some tough opposition. NAISAK drastically reduced the turnover of the ball as well as increasing their aggression in defence. In a tight contest, NAISAK couldn’t quite sink the tying basket and lost 5-2.
In the final game, NAISAK played Park House English School. From the very start of the game, the NAISAK team’s determination and energy was evident. They hustled for every ball and created some fantastic attacking opportunities. Unfortunately, the shooting percentage was down in the game, which resulted in PHES always being in the game, although NAISAK were clearly the more dominant team. NAISAK managed to hold out for the victory 6-4.
