The All Star Boys team from Greenvale Primary School ventured to Dandenong Basketball Stadium today to compete in the state finals.
Over 550 All Star Boys teams had entered the Hooptime Competition and only the top 20 teams were playing at the state finals.
The Boys Competition was split over four pools. In Pool 1, Greenvale was up against Warranwood Primary School, St Finbars Primary School (Brighton East), Kew East Primary School and Maffra Primary School.
The first match was against St Finbars, which saw a strong performance from both sides. St Finbars skills were to smooth as they scored a couple of threes in the final minutes to win the game by five points (16-21).
The second match against Warranwood, was again a strong performance, but fast breaks and outside shooting cost the boys this game, losing by eight points (8-16).
In the third match against Maffra PS, the boys got their day back on track with a thrilling win in the last minute by two points (17-15).
The fourth game was disappointing against Kew East, with the team not producing their best performance and easily losing this (6-21).
Following the games in our pool, we placed fourth and were able to play a consolidation game against Grey Street Primary School. Both teams really enjoyed their time out on court in this final game and Greenvale closed off Hooptime for 2016 on a high note, winning (17-7).
Congratulations to the boys on an outstanding Hooptime Series in 2016.
