Basketball Wagga’s junior spring competition has wrapped up in spectacular fashion after a series of hard-fought grand finals.
In the under 14s boys grand final, it was Bad Boys who proved the baddest of them all with a thumping 24-point win over Polar Bears.
Things were tight at quarter time with Bad Boys holding a slender 13-11 lead before the favourites blew out to a 13-point lead at half time.
The margin only grew as the final hooter sounded on a 59-35 win for Bad Boys.
Cooper Seddon was the star for Bad Boys, scoring 34 points in a best-on-court performance, while Anoshamisa Zanga was Polar Bears’ top scorer.
In the under 16s boys decider, Harry Wichman’s late bucket helped Ally Oops edge Jetts in a one-point thriller.
With the scores locked at 27-all, Wichman found the net with three minutes to play and while Jetts managed another free throw, it wasn’t enough as Ally Oops emerged 29-28 winners.
Josh Cochrane was Jetts’ top scorer in the grand final.
In the under 18s boys decider, Greek Freeks took the cake with a gritty 10-point victory over WWCC Hawks.
Cameron McPherson led the charge for Greek Freeks who recovered from a slow start in the decider.
WWCC Hawks held a two-point lead at the first break before McPherson stepped up to steer his side to a slim three-point lead at oranges.
The scores evened up at 23-all in the final quarter but the Greek Freeks proved too good, skipping away in the dying minutes for a comfortable win.
