DCB

HS Gym
Win 16-14

The final game of the regular season proved a bit of a roller coaster for the U.13 Girls team. After a slow start by both teams, WAB jumped out to a 4-0 lead only to have DCB come storming back to end the first half. Overcoming a 6-point deficit starting in the 3rd quarter, the Tigers took back the lead and went into the late stages of the game up 16-12. Then, in the final minute, DCB scored a quick basket to bring the score to 16-14 and almost had a chance to tie the score in the dying seconds of the game but fell short due to good final defense and the welcome sound of the final buzzer. The ride for WAB ended happily, and put them on a positive track going into ISAC - hosted by ISB - this coming Saturday. Go Tigers!!

BSB
Away
BSB
Win 10-6

The U13 girls claimed another victory in their already successful season in their contest against cross-town rival BSB. Despite the half-court pressure and tight man-to-man defense that BSB tried to use against them, the Tigers rose to the challenge breaking out to an early lead. Their tough defense and ability to take care of the ball for so much of the game helped them hold on to that lead and head off on their week-long vacation on a high note.

10-4, 11-9, 2-15

In a very grueling day, the Tigers had both their skill and stamina tested as they played 3 matches almost one after the other. The first game ended with a strong victory for WAB, 10-4 against Dulwich College. Next up, after a single game off to rest, they took on the surprise addition to the tournament from Keystone Academy - the team with the tallest player in the tournament - and fought back after an early deficit to win 11-9. In their 3rd game of the day, one without any rest after the previous match up and with a dramatically shortened bench, they played their second game of the season against ISB. This time, however, they held close until the last quarter when fatigue got the better of them and ISB was able to develop a commanding lead to the final whistle.


Congratulations on well-fought games throughout the day, and what hopefully proves to be a great beginning to the journey to the final ISAC tournament in late April!

In another match away from WAB, the girls traveled to Harrow International School and put on a commanding performance against the home team. Lots of minutes were given to lots of different people as the Tigers cruised to a strong win.

Win 10-8

The Gr. 7 (U13) Girls Basketball team had their first game yesterday, traveling to ISB to take on the Dragons. They got out to a very quick start, leading 6-0 early on, and held on in the end to win 10-8 in a slightly shortened game. Congratulations on a solid start which included lots of hustle and good teamwork!

vs.
ISAC U.19 Girls Div. 4 Basketball Tournament, BWYA, BCIS
Away
BWYA
Other BWYA 26-6 WAB; WAB 18-6 BCIS

The tournament started with the JV2 girls from WAB, ranked 3rd in the league after season results, tipping off against home team and 2nd-ranked BWYA. Right from the start, the improved defense of the WAB team shone as they limited BWYA's scoring chances through the first half of play. Unfortunately, the girls lacked the scoring touch they had demonstrated in their last 2 matches and despite many chances were unable to convert shots to points. As the game moved on, BWYA found their fast break rhythm and were able to pull away in the face of the on-going shooting woes of the JV2 team.

The next match vs. BCIS began a bit slowly and saw continued struggles on the offensive end of the floor for the Tigers, but at the start of the second half they asserted themselves with a stretch of very strong full-court pressure and aggressive defensive play which allowed them to pull ahead comfortably and maintain their lead right to the final buzzer. In the end, they girls took home the 3rd place trophy from the day, and were able to hold their heads up high at the end of a season which saw enormous improvement for them as a team and as individual players. Congratulations!

Loss 10-40

In the team's final game before the end-of-season ISAC tournament, the JV2 girls took on Harrow Beijing's Varsity team (after they had to pull out their lower teams from competition). The Tigers played a reasonably strong first 1/2, holding their stronger and more accomplished varsity opponents to only 8 points in each of the first 2 quarters. On the offensive side of the game, however, the team struggled to find open spots of the floor and get good shots at the basket - something which proved true for much of the game. Despite the lop-sided loss, the Tigers kept their heads up and fought hard all game long, taking an impressive effort and attitude with them off the floor and into the rest of their week - a strong place to be in right before heading to BWYA for a series of ISAC league re-matches at the final tournament.

Win 30-16

Fresh out of holidays, and with only 1 practice session under their belts, the JV2 girls jumped into the gym against the BCIS Warriors. Right from the opening tip-off, they looked much more poised and confident than in their earlier matches and these traits allowed them to jump out to a large, early lead. They played strong defense throughout to keep the opposition's scoring chances down, and at the other end of the floor they moved the ball quickly and communicated well to increase their own scoring chances. Overall, it was an excellent showing at an excellent time of the season - at the start of the final run-up to the ISAC tournament!


Next up: Harrow Beijing on Monday...

Tiger L'Air
Loss 10-19

In their latest effort on the court, the JV2 girls took on the visiting team from Keystone Academy in what proved to be their closest and most competitive contest so far. The two teams were very evenly matched and stayed within lead-changing striking distance of each other through all of the first 3 quarters. At that point, the WAB team seemed to have the flow of the game under control despite only holding a 2-point advantage when suddenly a 3-point range buzzer beater from Keystone which ended Quarter 3 gave the visitors the lead for good. With the wind taken out of their sails a little bit and a bit of fatigue setting in, the Tigers were unable to score in the final quarter as the very deep bench of Keystone made a few more baskets to end the match.

With the winter vacation ahead, the Tigers will have time to rest and recuperate before coming back to take on cross-town rivals BCIS in their next match on January 10th.

Loss 11-28

The team's second match of the season saw them match up against the Wolves from BWYA, one of the teams against whom they'll match up again in the end-of-season ISAC tournament. At the opening tip-off, WAB started strong by getting out to an early lead and looked very solid on the defensive end early on. As the game moved on, BWYA began to break down the offensive motion of the WAB girls and after a series of fast breaks and strong rebounding took the lead before the end of the first half and never looked back. Again, the JV2 squad continued to fight hard and made some competent adjustments to the BWYA pressure at different times, but in the end the Wolves' forceful style of play combined with the Tigers' shooting woes were too much to overcome.

WAB
Loss 14-38

In their first game of the season, the JV2 Girls matched up against the top group of players from the MS Girls pool of basketball players. The skills and aggressive style of the MS team proved too much for the young and relatively inexperienced JV2 group, but despite this the girls refused to give up and fought hard right to the final buzzer.

Great Wall Tournament
Away
ISB
Win 31-30

In a tense, come from behind victory, the WAB Tigers overcame an early 10-point deficit to defeat the favored International School of Bangkok (ISBK) team. The annual Great Wall Shootout at ISB Beijing sports six teams from around Asia in a three day tournament. Schools from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Korea, and Bangkok met in a round robin style tournament. For the girls tournament, the ISBK team rolled through the round robin, defeating every school by double digits, including beating WAB 37-23. Despite a close disappointing loss to ISB Beijing in the round robin, WAB made it through to the final with a tie-breaker, and set up a rematch with the undefeated ISBK Panthers. The game was slow to start, as nerves were evident from both teams. ISBK broke the ice with a 6-point run and ending the first quarter with a 10-2 lead. WAB would not go away and kept it close in the second quarter with ISBK heading into half-time with a 20-10 lead. WAB came out of the half firing on all cylinders, opening the half with a 9-0 run, which ended with 3-point shot by senior Captain Jessica Tsao. ISBK responded with a short run, and we entered the fourth quarter at 27-22 ISBK. In the fourth, ISBK opened with a field goal to make it 29-22, but WAB turned up the defensive pressure, with steals and rebounds leading to fast break points that continued to chip away at the lead. With a minute to go, Dani Monfils scored the go ahead basket to make it 30-29. ISBK had a chance to take the lead, but made 1-2 form the free throw line to tie the game. Then, with seconds remaining, Jessica “Shoes” Xu was fouled driving to the basket leading to a shots at the free throw line. Xu made 1 of 2, giving WAB a lead they would not relinquish. Without a timeout, and with only a few seconds to go, a desperation half-court shot clanged off the back board, sending WAB to victory with a large uproar from the WAB friendly fans. The girls had an improbable victory that will hopefully continue to propel the team as they head into APAC season, with WAB hosting the upcoming Tri-Cities tournament against ISB, SAS Pudong, and AIS Guangzhou.
