Day Two of the Schick Championships has come to a close this evening with another 58 games played over nine courts and 12 hours. With two days of basketball behind them and at least three games each, the teams are getting a feel for playoff spots.

The ‘A’ Girls competition has reached the semi-finals stage. Manukura will play Stratford High School tomorrow at 2:15pm on the Showcourt (LIVESTATS). On the other side of the bracket, Te Aroha College and Ellesmere College will play at 4pm (LIVESTATS) for a Grand Final berth. The 4pm game will be livestreamed on

In the ‘A’ Boys competition, defending champs Stratford from Pool A and Opunake from Pool B are undefeated. Also in Pool A, Te Aroha had a big win over local favourites Manukura. Both those teams are tallied with three wins and one loss. This competition still has games to play before semi-finals are announced.

In the AA Boys competition, Pool C is wide open with all teams having the ability to claim a playoff spot. Palmerston North Boys High School, Hastings Boys High School and Otago Boys High School have two wins and one loss each. Auckland Grammar School, Rangitoto College and Middleton Grange all have one win and two losses. That said, these schools have shown a spark that could propel them into contention if they lift tomorrow. Pool A continues to entertain as the ‘pool of death’, with Rosmini just managing to scrape passed Hamilton Boys’ 72 to 69. Mt Albert Grammar remain undefeated in Pool A.

In the ‘AA’ Girls competition, the big match tomorrow will be from Pool A with Sacred Heart and Westlake Girls both undefeated with four wins from four. They play tomorrow at 4pm on Court Five. Defending champions St. Peter’s Cambridge have been cruising through Pool B with three comfortable wins. Hutt Valley also remain undefeated in that Pool with three wins from three. These two teams meet tomorrow night at 5:45pm on Court Six.

Queen Margret’s College from Wellington, who are newcomers to the Schick Championships, are impressively undefeated in Pool C. They celebrated a big winner over Mt. Auckland Grammar School, who are the Zone One Schick Premierships Champions.
