It might be finals time for their Harvey counterparts, but Waroona’s regular basketball season is still going strong.

Round 16 of the Waroona Amateur Basketball Association season took place on February 15 at the Waroona Recreation and Aquatic Centre, as teams vie for positions in the March finals.

In the men’s competition, Magic came back from their shock defeat in round 15 to post a 69-39 win over the Bulls.

Anthony Hansen again had the magic touch for the winning side, scoring 27 points.

The Warriors’ Rickardo Jetta matched Hansen’s score in their 71-28 thumping of the bottom of the ladder Rent-A-Crowd.

Following on from their win against the ladder leaders, the Kings had a comfortable 64-36 victory over the Bush Chooks.

Keelan Hinchcliffe (22 points) was the highest points scorer of the match.

In the women’s competition, the ladder leading Cruisers came back from their loss against the Phoneix to post a 64-22 win over Group Therapy.

Phoneix themselves were too good for the Young Bloods, who went down 43-19.

The Blue Birds had a close finish against the Kings, winning the match 28-25.
