“JUST run” – that was the message to the Willetton Tigers before their game against the Rockingham Flames without Ray Turner at Willetton Basketball Stadium on Saturday.
And run they did, as Jay Bowie and Damien Scott inspired the Tigers to a 89-70 win.
This is Willetton’s first win at home since Scott reached his 200-game milestone.
Willetton played without Ray Turner (who is back in the US for his wedding), while Rockingham were also without a star player in Dexter Kernich-Drew.
The Tigers came out blazing, eager to give Scott a happier milestone celebration than his away loss to East Perth two weeks ago.
As for Scott’s thoughts on playing 200 games, he was proud to have reached such a milestone playing a game that’s clearly had a big impact on his life.
“I’ve loved my time in the SBL, from when I was 17 or 18 until now.
“I’ve improved,” he said.
