​King’s Basketball Excellence

Basketball Girls July 2020 1

Our King’s Open boys and girls elite basketball teams competed in two “friendly” games against some of Queensland’s strongest basketball schools over the recent school holidays. 

In the third week of the June/July holidays, both our open boys and girls played St James College, which is a Championship Division side in both the boys and girls at CBSQ (Champion Basketball School of Queensland). 

Our girls played the first game, and showed superior skill, fitness, rebounding and 3 point shooting to easily defeat St James 60 – 34. Our senior girls' shooting was exceptional with Cassidy Muir scoring 15, Halle Brooker scoring 15 and Janique O’Riley scoring 14!

The King’s girls performance was a taste of things to come for the St James boys, with our King’s boys beating St James 90 – 60. Our big 3 scorers for the game were Elijah Kamu scoring 18, Jalen Blanchard scoring 17, and sharp shooter Mekhi O’Riley scoring 21. Well done to both teams.
