Basketball BNXT League Elite Silver Yoast United Nijmegen – Kangaroos Mechelen 58-70

Kangaroos Mechelen did not make a false start in Elite Silver and won in Yoast United Nijmegen. “After five consecutive defeats, it was important to get back into winning mode,” said Domien Loubry.

The first half was not good for Kangaroos Mechelen. Poor defense was immediately punished by Yoast United. The Dutch team had a 38-33 bonus halfway through and after a 17-17 score.

Kangaroos Mechelen came out of the dressing room sharper and took the lead again after a 0-9 intermediate spurt at 45-46. The defense was tight, but Yoast United still started the final push with a 49-48 lead.

However, the lights went out for the Dutch team in the last quarter. From a 55-53 scoreline it quickly went to a 55-62 and 57-63 Mechelen bonus. In coach Tony Van den Bosch’s team, it was the seniors who reached double figures. Dutchman Willem Brandwijk scored 13 points and 8 rebounds against his compatriots, Walter Whyte scored 10 points and 9 rebounds, Wen Mukubu had a double-double (13 points, 12 rebounds) and Domien Loubry scored 12 points.

“On the one hand, we did it in the second half (20-37) and on the other hand, we did it collectively. This victory is important on all levels. It provides peace and quiet and we can prepare for the next match in complete serenity. Due to the final of the Belgian Cup (Sunday, March 10, Charleroi-Limburg United, ed.), we will not be in action until March 16. We now have to confirm for our own audience. Due to the defeat of Kortrijk Spurs in Den Helder Suns, we are immediately doing a good thing towards the Belgian play-offs on the opening match day of Elite Silver,” said birthday boy Domien Loubry.
