T-Bone hits a Hundred!
Local sportsman Tony 'T-Bone' Ferris joined the hundred club last night at Albury Stadium when his Bandits faced Sandringham Sabres.
With the Sabres coming off a spate of victories the home side were always going to be up against it.
However with T-Bone knotching up his hundred there was something special to play for.
Early in the game the Bandits were looking the goods and it was only after the first break that Sandringham started to apply the pressure.
With Nathan Crosswell calling the shots on court the experienced Sabres began to wear down the Bandits and take control of the game in the second term.
Having said that the boys from the Border weren't about to let them have it all their own way and put in some big efforts to keep pace with their more fancied opponents in the last half.
Young Jack Duck took the court to the pleasure of the crowd and immediately set about getting hold of the ball, showing he's a player to watch in the future.
Although a dissapointment to go down on T-Bones big night it still shows Albury/Wodonga has some great young players who'll benefit from playing against the likes of Crosswell.
It can only be a good thing for basketball in the region.
