The PNBHS Prem A Basketball team played in the St Pats Classic in the last weekend of the school holidays. 

In pool play PNBHS beat Rongotai College 70 -69 and beat Wellington College 58-47. However, these teams both won their cross-over games so all the teams in our pool and ended up in the semi finals. ​In the semi final PNBHS beat Wellington College 63 - 44 ​and then beat Rongotai College 59 - 54 in the final. ​Rongotai were without two of their starting 5 for the final so they will be tough to beat when at full strength.

Pre-season running clock basketball games are all about developing the team not really about the scoreline. It was pleasing to see that the intensity and effort stayed high when the bench players were on and the team can be pleased with their overall development over the weekend.
