Our cousins are the new champions...of the Massey Leisure Centre Mixed Basketball Team league, or whatever it's called!
Tonight was the grand final and since they forgot to invite us to join the team (aheemm!) or watch any of their other games, they finally invited us to come watch their final game, which happened to be the final!
They were all in their fluorescent singlets which was fitting, considering they named their team the U.V's (Ultraviolets)!
The game got off well, with the UV's running out to a huge lead, thanks to their 'import' Jack, one of our cousins' friends who joined the team just for that game. He scored the majority of their points and was quite good with the ball.
By half-time the UV's were comfortably in the lead.
The second half was different, with the opposition slowly catching up to within eight points (that's still quite a big gap but considering they were leading for more than ten points for most of the game...) The UV's pulled away in the last few minutes though and eventually won the final comfortably!
Congratulations you guys! It was good catching up with the family this evening over a game of basketball!
