The New Zealand Basketball league is back and the match that is going to take place this week will be between Franklin Bulls and Auckland Huskies.
It’s time for both these teams to step up as they haven’t exactly had the best of beginnings and both of them need to find a way of getting a win on the board
The tournament’s format doesn’t exactly allow teams to take time and both the teams need to get into their stride having lost both their opening games.
Teams: Franklin Bulls vs Auckland Huskies
Match Timing: June 28, @ 11:00 AM
Venue: New Zealand Stadium
Both the teams are fortunate on the injury front and have a full squad to choose from and no injuries to hamper their selection.
For the bulls, the previous game belonged to two people. Issac Davidson who scored 21 points and collected 3 rebounds. The other was Dominique Kelman-Polo who scored 20 points as well
Jaylen Gerrand should be selected on his previous record and is the key player for the Huskies. They would be desperate for him to get back in to form
