The Adelaide 36ers are not going down without a fight.
The NBL’s bottom placed team smacked the South East Melbourne Phoenix 110-85 at the State Basketball Centre on Wednesday.
The 36ers were missing import Jacob Wiley, but his replacement, Kyrin Galloway, was more than impressive with 23 points and seven boards.
Interim coach Scott Ninnis said what Galloway did was ‘incredible’.
“As we’ve been building as a group, what KG has been able to give us, you feel that was coming,” he said.
“What KG does is gives us something different from our other bigs, being such a threat from the perimeter.
“KG has put his hand up to play extended minutes now, that’ll certainly continue this weekend against Illawarra.”
Post-game, Galloway commended his teammates for their support.
“Always staying ready and waiting for the opportunity to produce, my teammates have been great for my confidence,” he said.
The 36ers take on the Illawarra Hawks on Saturday.
