Donkaroos 60 Bus Drivers 49
Donkaroos Weathers Early Storm, Defeats Bus Drivers 60-49
Donkaroos finished the game on a 51-30 run to take down the Bus Drivers for the championship. Brendon Leary finished with 13 points and 6 steals for Donkaroos, while Sam King scored a game-high 15 points and added 8 rebounds.
The Bus Drivers were methodical in picking apart the Donkaroos' zone defense, with John Rodier picking up 3 of his 5 assists in the first five minutes of the game.
Although TJ Dlugolecki only picked up two assists in the game, he may have had seven hockey assists. He threw several great skip passes from the baseline to open shooters who often kicked on the extra pass. AJ Alaluf benefited from these passes, as he made five 3-pointers in the game.
The true talent of Donkaroos proved to be too much in the end for the Bus Drivers, however. The shots didn't fall for Bus Drivers later in the game, whereas Donkaroos kept chucking (and making) 3-pointers. Donkaroos grabbed 33 of 40 available defensive rebounds, and that dominance on the boards proved to be too much for Bus Drivers.
