Melbourne Hustlers Go 0-2 On Day One Of Sina Elite League

The Melbourne Hustlers have gone down in two nail biting contests on day one of the 2019 Sina Elite League.

Melbourne, led by Tom Wright, Andrew Steel, Greg Hire and Tom Jervis, lost to Shang Shi Long Chuang 21-19 in their first game, before falling to Team Amsterdam 18-15 in their second clash.

Wright and Hire provided most of the offensive punch in the two games, Steel was his always reliable best on offence and defence, while Jervis was important in the rebounding battle and provided strong rim protection.

The Hustlers will be back on court tomorrow to conclude the pool stages of the tournament.
