SEABL Conference Finals: Ben Allen and…

SEABL MEN Photo Credit: Knox Basketball Ben Allen is the toast of Mt. Gambier, knocking down a three to hand the Pioneers the South Conference with a 70-68 victory over the Kilsyth Cobras. The lead changed hands ten times in the last quarter before the final possession saw Tom Daly draw two defenders along the baseline, kicking it to Allen who was open at the top of the key. The game-winner follows on from last year’s Conference Final, when the 211cm centre also beat Nunawading on the buzzer with a three pointer. Out-muscling Auryn MacMillan (16 points, 13 rebounds), Damian Johnson (15 and 15 with 4 blocks) and Brad Hill (18 and 11) controlled the inside, helping Mt. Gambier to a 13-4 advantage in second chance points. MacMillan has had an excellent finals series but received little support from the likes of Tim Lang although Kyle Adnam impressed with 18 points.
