Montana Allstars - CHAMPIONS!

The Montana Allstars Junior Basketball Team are champions of Zug and through to the Swiss National Championships in June 2015! The team continued their undefeated season and won all of their matches to win the regional championships held this week in Cham.

30 March 2015

The Allstars convincingly won all four of their matches against schools from the region, including Cham College, in another impressive display of teamwork and athleticism, scoring a total of 50 points against 6 conceded! The pace was fast and furious but no worry for the Captain and point-guard who marshalled his troops in defence with precision and led the team by example. The Shooting-guard and Vice-Captain was excellent as play-maker and in the fast-break counter attacks, in what was his first official appearance for the Allstars.

Our newest team member towered above the opposition and bossed the centre with rebound after rebound, scoring the highest number of baskets for the team.

The offense worked tirelessly and selflessly in attack; their quick passing and movement opened up spaces and they were formidable in scrambling the zone defence. The defensive skills added to the intensity of the team as they continuously stole the ball, mercilessly intercepted and cajoled the opposition into submission. One player in particular added real presence and height in and around the baskets with impressive rebounds at both ends, assists and points scored.

Thanks to the Senior Team for their recent practice matches (in which the Allstars have more than held their own). We look forward to further collaboration between senior and junior basketball as training intensifies next term in the run up to the National Championships.
