Saints back to winning ways

5:49 am on 27 May 2013

The Wellington Saints have bounced back from a two-game losing streak in the National Basketball League to defeat the Super City Rangers 106-61 in Waitakere, Auckland.

Saints guard Lindsay Tait scored 22 points, 12 assists and four steals, while swingman Bryant Markson added a double-double of 21 points and 15 rebounds.

Saints guard Andrew Warren had a game-high 24 points, but was disqualified after an altercation with little-used player Christoph Fahrensohn in garbage time.

It could be a massive blow for the Saints who could be without Warren for their big game on Tuesday against the Otago Nuggets.

Warren is the second player to be disqualified this week, after forward Kenny Gabriel was ejected on Friday night against Waikato.
