Did anyone see the Mav's game ?

Guys ,

The write-ups have been great the last couple of days .. but can anyone shed some light on what happened to this Norwood team with all the 'names' ?

Did they get out-gunned or just a bad day ? Mav's did not have Holmes .. i heard .. and wont for the rest of the season ..

Was at the game and the only reason (or is it an excuse?)I can come up with for Norwood's shock loss, was that they underestimated the Mavericks side. It was a good hard game, Brad Davis top scoring, gee what was that being bandied around about him????

Its easy to just say someone scored so many points... gotta look at the amount of shots it takes to get those points. (where the hell are the box scores?)

What HawksFan is saying i think is that Norwood seemed to have a few high scorers... but to loose this game.. they all must've missed a lot of shots to get those points.

Skyhook not blaming Krause for the defeat at all. Just saying he took alot of 3's for a big man. Norwood played quite well for 3 quarters, but fell away in the last. I think with the inclusion of Scott Arnold theyll be alot better.
Good games from Dan Thompson and young webber

The write up for the Eastern v Norwood game that appeared in the 'Courier' Wednesday March 9 is as follows.

'The defending champion Mavericks men's team faced determined Norwood challenge, after the Flames clinched a grand final win in the recently completed summer season. Eastern started Saturday's game well but suffered a mini fade-out in the second quarter. It then overran the visitors in the thrid and final quarters for a 17-point victory. The mavericks started will on the back of a Brad Davis flyer, when he scored 15 points in the first quarter to carry the mavericks to a six-point lead at quarter time. Nik Campbell, Ben Trebilcock, Joel Goodenough and Adam Becis, who has returned from interstate, all enjoyed court time and provided support to Davis in the opening quarter. Norwood coach and ex National Basketball league player Rupert Sapwell tried a number of combinations, rotating nine of his 10 players available to find a winning formula. The flames established a number of scoring options in term two, with Dan Thompson, Keith Krause, Andrew Webber and Jason Januske proving a handful for the Mavericks defence, as Norwood outscored its hosts 31 points to 21. Only Goodenough, Becis and Trebilcock scored multiple baskets for Eastern. By Half-time, the Mavericks has surrendered the lead and fell four points behind at half-time. Macericks coach Richard Hill made adjustments to the Mavericks defensive pressure and his side had regained control of the match by the midway through term three. They stopped all but Thompson from scoing multiple baskets in the stanza. Of the 16 points the Flames scored during the quarter, eight were from the foul-line. In contrast Ben Madgen, Campbell and Jason Warhurst combined for 18 points between them as the Mavericks conjured a two-point lead at three-quarter time. While the margin was slender, Eastern looked to be in control. It took complete control in the last quarter with points from seven of the nine players used to torch the flames. Eastern piled on 29 points to 14, while Thompson and Webber compiled 12 of the 14 last-quarter points scored by the visitors. Trebilcock was damaging in the key with his size and strength, adding eight Mavericks points for the period. Hill was pleased with the Mavericks' defensive second-half performance, when they outscored the Flames 51-30 to triumph by 17. Eastern restricted the Flames scoring options in the second half.'

Eastern Mavericks 99 (Davis 22, Trebilcock 18, Campbell 14, Becis, Warhurst 11) d. Norwood Flames 82.
