Daniel Trist takes time out to meet Norths juniors

The Sydney Kings were in a position to pick up the much-coveted win over the defending NBL Champions. They had the chance to do it in front of a record crowd. Led by a very loud Norths Juniors cheer squad. 

Chris Goulding had other ideas. With Melbourne United up 71-70, the reigning Grand Final MVP got the switch he wanted, then did what he’s paid to do. “Get a bucket,” the reigning Grand Final MVP said of what he planned to do on the possession; one of the last of the game.

The Kings had the added advantage of 12,050 fans in Qudos Bank Arena - a new single-game record, beating the 11,005 they attracted in the final game of the 2016-17 season; also against United - but couldn’t close out the game; their five-game winning streak coming to an end.

Jerome Randle (Norths Club Ambassador) led the Kings with 15 points, but missed the potential game-tying three-pointer in the dying seconds. Andrew Bogut had 11 points, 15 rebounds, and four blocks, but continued some of his offensive struggles against a physical United side. 

After the game Jerome took time our to sign autographs and meet the Norths Team.
