THE Rochester Basketball Association Juniors have continued their strong year with the weekends tournament in Shepparton.

RBA sent a total of six teams: U12 boys, U14 boys, U16 boys and girls and U18 boys and girls.

Most of the players in the tournament have never previously played squad basketball before this season, making their overall performances even more impressive.

In the fourth tournament of the year, each age group began to find their groove, claiming a number of wins.

It also saw two sides — both in under 18s advance to the grand final.

The under 18 girls side put up a strong performance, but fell in the final.

However the under 18 boys were able to claim the tournament, with a 59-23 victory over Deniliquin.

Team member Jarrad Kyne claimed the MVP of the tournament.

The RBA would like to thank families of teams for their hard work throughout the season, as well as the team sponsors for making the results possible.
