Top of the North Game 1 - 29 August 2020

Cairns v Townsville Round 1.

Almost a year since there's been any local basketball to photograph, and what better way to get back into it than to have the arch-rivals getting into each other? More of a friendly game than anything else - everyone just wanted to go play / watch some basketball! Cairns took out both games, with Myra Donkin (24) leading the charge for Cairns and Jaimee Seebohm top scoring for Townsville.

Then it was the Men's turn, and Majok Deng led the way with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists. Mirko handed out 14 assists... For Townsville, Logan Kyle topped the scoreline with 15 points, closely followed by Richard Peachey on 14.

Good to see both sides using some of their up and coming young guns - there's a couple of the Cairns players I can remember being born... Back for Round 2 tomorrow.
