Bellmac, the unbeaten leaders of Dubbo junior basketball’s top division, continued their path to the finals with a big 63-28 win over Bullfrogs.
Caitlin Colliver continued on from the great form she showed at State level but could not compete with a Bellmac partnership that has developed between Mitch Ipkendanz and Liam Morrow.
A huge second half by Clowns saw them finish all over Tbirds 63-35.
Despite valiant defensive efforts by Luke Griffiths and Adam Winterbottom, the depth of experience in the Clowns was too much, with Izak Tanner and Elliot Goard finding the basket from all over the court.
